Christian roots rocker David Crowder says his aesthetics is to go through activity accessible to whatever ability lie ahead.
That access to life, he says, is what led him to, four years ago, carelessness his David Crowder Band, which in a decade calm had won eight Dove Awards and produced eight Top 5 Christian albums — the aftermost of which, 2012’s “Give Us Rest,” beyond over to No. 2 on Billboard’s all-embracing Albums chart.
It additionally led him to alpha a new eponymously alleged band, whose admission album, 2014’s “Neon Steeple,” topped the Christian chart, bankrupt Billboard’s all-embracing Top 10 and gave him a No. 1 Christian hit, “Come As You Are.”
And it led him to bend from that album’s acknowledged access to a added affectionate access on Crowder’s green disc, 2016’s “American Prodigal.”
Nearly two years later, Crowder is starting the third leg of the bout for that album, which he cleverly calls “American Prodigal 3.0.”
That bout stops at 7 p.m. today, March 2, at Santander Assuming Arts Center in Reading.
In a contempo alarm from northwest of Charleston, S.C., area he was accomplishing a concert that night, Crowder batten about the disc and his career aback acceptable Crowder.
Here’s a archetype of the call:
LEHIGH VALLEY MUSIC: Hi David.
DAVID CROWDER: “David is here. David is here. Hey, hey.”
[Laughs] How are you?
“I’m accomplishing great, man. How about you?”
Just fine, thanks. And acknowledgment for demography out time to do this with me this morning.
“Thank you for including me. We accept three one-offs [concerts] this weekend, affectionate of get out toe aback in the baptize and agitate the dust off. And afresh we alpha the bout – ‘American Prodigal bout 3.0.”
“We’re aggravating to bethink how to comedy and sing appropriate now. These association are in for a amusement tonight; that’s all I’m saying. [Laughs] We’re aggravating to do our job.
“So you got us on Day 2, then. By afresh we’ll accept the actuality down. Let bodies apperceive we’re gonna be absolutely able by afresh [laughs].”
Well, alike if we get a semi-good Crowder, it’ll be good. But I’m acquisitive for a abundant Crowder. So …
So why are you calling the bout “3.0”?
“Um, well, it’s actual simple, and I apologize for my artlessness and accurate naming, but it’s the third time that we’re activity to go on bout acknowledging the ‘American Prodigal’ almanac that we appear about a year and a bisected ago.”
“So the aboriginal time we went through it, it was ‘American Prodigal 1.0.’ I don’t know; I’m kinda demography my cues from all the updates that Apple makes me do. And it seems like a absolute nice organizational-type situation. So this will be the third time out, so we alleged it ‘The 3.0.’”
Great. So acquaint me about the new single, “All My Hope.” Area did that appear from, how did it appear together? How did you angle up with [singer] Taren Wells?
“Oh my goodness. Um, well, so the autograph process, I wrote the song with [four-time Gospel Music Awards Producer of the Yar] Ed Cash, who’s an absurd writer. He’s accounting and alternate in a lot of songs that a lot of bodies would apperceive [including “How Abundant is Our God,” which won bristles Dove Awards]. I can’t name them all; there’s too abounding of them. Amazing dude.
“However, the Taren Wells affair – we were assuming at an awards show, and we were attractive for that artisan to participate in the moment so it acquainted like added of a ‘we’ instead of a ‘me’ situation, so that it accepted the accomplished association of what it is to be in gospel/church association affectionate of what we’re doing. And Taren was a allotment of it.
“And, oh my goodness, his personality is what addled me on the advanced end. Aloof a super-sweet human. And afresh back you apprehend him sing, you’re like, ‘I quit!’ [Laughs] Aloof to apprehend this guy … the guy is unbelievable. You know, and about the time we were recording his allocation on the record, I was, like, ‘Hey man, I’ll be in Nashville such-and-such date. Can you get up there?’ He was, like, ‘Yeah, I accept a breach on the Mirah Carey/Lionel Richie tour, I can apparently pop in there and almanac article for you.’
“I was like, ‘Oh, my goodness, this is crazy. The guy’s out with, like, legends and afresh he’s aloof activity to pop in and sing? Goodness.
“The guy – I don’t anticipate he knows annihilation that’s not in pitch. And colorful. It’s incredible, amazing. And I said, a ablaze animal being. He’s a abundant dude.’”
Does that arresting any blazon of assignment that you’re doing? I mean, are you autograph any blazon of disc at this point? Are you attractive to do annihilation abroad in that vein?
“Well, I’m currently, yes, currently autograph for the abutting record. But it’ll be a acceptable while afore it comes out – apparently not till October-ish. So it’s still a means off, but consistently working.
“And it’s, ahh … the appearance of things develops as it goes. So I can’t absolutely tag what I’d allocate the sounds as yet, but I’m aloof afterward … I’m aloof aggravating trace thread, chase the cilia appropriate now.”
All right. So that leads me into the … I apperceive it’s been out for a while now, but I appetite to allocution a little bit about “American Prodigal,’ and area that came from – what were you attractive to do with it? Did you do annihilation different? Acquaint me a little bit of the adventure of the album.
“Absolutely. I usually accept aloof a few key words in my arch back I’m affectionate aggravating to address into a project. So I aloof absolutely had the chat ‘prodigal’ sitting there for a while. And afresh the ‘American’ affair to adapt it didn’t appear forth till later.
“But the accomplished point was to abide the adventure that we started with the aboriginal record, [2014’s] ‘Neon Steeple,’ and become added claimed expression. For me, ‘Neon Steeple’ was like a Google map affair for me: zoom out and get a all-around appearance of things. And afresh the ‘American Prodigal’ record, it’s way added personal. Far added claimed pronouns than the aboriginal one. Affectionate of zooming in.
“But the capital contemporary topic, I believe, would be classified as freedom. It’s like a adventure against freedom: There are things that we are apprenticed by, and the aloof accepting through activity is affectionate of difficult bottomward actuality at times [laughs].
“And to accept that there’s article bigger to animate for than self. And a lot of the stuff, as I said, that we’re apprenticed by – already you let go of it and accept that you’re accommodating in a story, it’s a admirable adventure and that you get to be a allotment of, advantage gracious, the abandon that comes in that is brilliant.
“And that Jesus never started with morality. Every distinct alternation that he had never started with morality. It started with what you charge and how can I accord it to you, and from there it gets added interesting. And that’s affectionate of what the almanac is accomplishing – it’s aggravating to set bodies chargeless and get over the actuality that binds us. Let the chains go, is affectionate of the accomplished point of it.”
What was the adventure abaft “Run Devil Run”? How did that song appear to you?
“Um, that was an afternoon spent with a actual acceptable acquaintance that I’ve accepted for a continued while – his name is Solomon Olds. He was the advance accompanist of a bandage [Family Force 5] that I was a huge fan of, and he does a lot of bearing and programming.
“And it was him and his wife and me and it came out of nowhere, man. We were aloof talking about actuality that brings you bottomward and binds you. It’s affectionate of a fist-in-the-air blazon song. It’s affectionate of aggressive in its tone. And it absolutely set me off on the accomplished adventure of the record. It was affectionate of the aboriginal – not affectionate of, it was, the aboriginal song accounting activity into it, and it gave ambience to the blow of it.
“It’s fun – it’s a fun track. At the aforementioned time, I anticipate back you get to that bridge, it starts claiming some promised that are in scripture that are about advancing to life, as I said, in the abandon we’re accustomed in ablaze of Jesus.”
Um, how afraid [laughs] were you to see that acclimated on Sunday Night Football?
“[Laughs] Man, I was sitting … we were absolutely watching the bold on the bus. I can’t bethink what burghal we were in, but we were all sitting watching the football game, and all of a abrupt it starts activity to commercial, and we apprehend that song playing. And I absolutely said out loud – I was, like, ‘Hey, uh, what’s that song? I adulation that song! What’s that song?’”
“[Laughs] And they’re like, ‘That’s Run Devil Run’! That’s your song. You wrote that!’ I was like, ‘Oh, yeah, yeah. That’s cool. My goodness.’
“And afresh I got a argument from my mom appropriate afterwards that [Laughs]. And she said, ‘Did you aloof apprehend your song on the TV?’ And I was, like, ‘Absolutely, I aloof did. I don’t apperceive how that happened; that’s incredible. Absolutely neat.’”
When accomplishing “American Prodigal,” was there any burden from the actuality that the aboriginal anthology did so able-bodied and that you had so abundant success with it? I mean, did that affect how you did the additional anthology at all?
“Um, no. Well, acknowledge you for adage what you said. Uh, maybe I was blind that it did so able-bodied [laughs].
“I don’t apperceive – I’m aloof afraid as a actuality all the time. So I don’t anticipate you can add to your agitation [laughs]. No, I absolutely don’t … I’m aloof cerebration there’s so abundant to say, there’s so abundant to anticipate about in affiliation to actuality animate and a animal on planet apple and all of the complications that our relationships accompany and our adventures of the planet and aloof actuality alive.
“There’s a lot to anticipate about – like, ‘Why? Why are we here?’ And afresh to ally that to my acceptance that we’re actuality for a purpose and there’s article that you can accommodate – accord this little bit of animation that you’ve been given, you can advantage it to article bigger than self, as I said previously.
“Man, there’s so abundant you can allocution about. So I aloof try to attenuated it bottomward and put what I’d like to say appropriate now, accustomed area my activity acquaintance has led me to, and here’s area I am in this moment, and I achievement what I’m adage is absolutely adumbrative of what is transpiring in ablaze of what I’m cerebration about.
“So I try to box in. What’s in that box is absolutely not [focusing on] what the almanac afore it aloof did. [laughs]. Maybe I’d be bigger at my job if I did anticipate about that, but I’m apparently aloof too addled [laughs].”
At this point now, 2 ½ annal out, into the activity Crowder, are you annoyed that you fabricated the actual decision, or did you acquisition what you were attractive to find, back you larboard the David Crowder Bandage behind?
“Well, uh, I didn’t leave … Yes, I guess, would be the abbreviate acknowledgment of it. I didn’t intend to, like, leave that abaft for article abroad added than a alteration of life. It’s like how activity ebbs and flows? It’s like a accessory that starts to aberration again, an all of a abrupt it starts acid a aisle that you ability not accept apparent coming.
“And I was aloof open. I was aloof open, that was the end of the almanac arrangement period. We were … my activity and my wife’s activity were aloof activity in a altered direction. And it was, like, ‘Hey, let’s see what’s out there.’ And I aloof kept my easily open.
“And I anticipate that’s the best way to go about active [Laughs]. If you accumulate your easily open, sometimes you accept things put in it, and sometimes you accept things taken out. And as continued as your easily are open, afresh you’re not avaricious assimilate article too tightly. And you’re apparently activity to be bigger off for it.
“And so yes is the abbreviate answer. I couldn’t be happier than what I’m accomplishing appropriate now, and I’m animated that I aloof … I’m animated I still accept my easily open, and I’m animated I had my easily accessible at the time.”
Great. That’s seems like a nice abode to blanket it up, and those are the questions I had for you. Is there annihilation accessible I didn’t ask of that you’d like to see in my story?
“Um, I don’t apperceive if you mentioned how photogenic I am, but I’m actual photogenic. I don’t apperceive if they’ve beatific you pictures [laughs].
“No, dude, I got no agenda. I’m aflame to get up that way. … Are you gonna be around?’
