Derek Webb: My First Allegiance

I see this as a Christmas song — or an Advent song — one that deals with the hope of a New King.

    Big Derek Webb fan. Have been since his CD Mockingbird was temporarily available for free when it was first released. Good thing too, because if it wasn’t free I may not have ever listened and bought both of the following CDs.

    Ben, Mockingbird was the first album I heard of his too. Listened for a week solid.

    The Church (in fact, the whole album She Must and Shall Go Free) is also a great Christmas song.

  • Nathanael

    It’s so refreshing to have a voice in Christian music that doesn’t just recite the party line.

    Thank you Mr. Webb.

    not sure if you still can, but his albums were on for free for a bit…
