DCB and The Digital Age

While the full band has disbanded following their latest release, former David Crowder Band members have come together to start a new project – Digital Age.

Lucky for fans of the band, they’ve posted a couple videos from their rehearsals on YouTube.

From their website:

The idea of The Digital Age came from several conversations about the current state of technology and how we as humans can now interact. With the rise of the internet, our neighbors are no longer the people who live next to us. We have relationships with people not only within our communities and in our cities, but across the globe. Ideas and information spread quickly and shape how we choose to connect or disconnect from those around us. For example, the majority of the final DC*B album was recorded in separate locations. Files were uploaded and shared on a private server, and many artistic interactions occurred behind the veil of a computer screen. 1s and 0s turned into sounds, and sounds turned into songs. What started as small files are now songs that can be found floating across the internet. We are all neighbors. We are all connected. Art is everywhere, free to give and take. We live in the digital age.

It’s been awesome to see this band progress and change and lead over the years. My first memory of them was leading a revival at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in 2002 or so. I didn’t know much about them at the time other than they led worship up the road at University Baptist in Waco, their lead singer had a really cool goatee and they had a DJ in the band – that made ’em pretty cool in my book.

Check out the band’s new direction and let us know what you think:

Just in time for Valentines day…

Our friends Kari McHam and Jana Vanderburg have just put together a short video detailing some of the work their doing — caring for and loving on the women in Waco’s adult entertainment industry.

As Kari shared on our show last year, through Porcelain Dolls, they’ve built a number of real relationships with the “un-loved” in their community and have witnessed some serious life changes in some of the women as well.

Over the weekend the girls took part in a Valentine’s Day outreach and also recently gave away 3 computers to several girls who are trying to further their education.

Watch the video and consider how you might get involved to help…

You can also listen to Kari’s story and Jana’s story on the podcast.

Who in your community needs this kind of love and caring?
