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.

    this is an incredible song! “A King and A Kingdom”

  • Holy cow! I recorded this video! He was at Hope College performing this and a bunch of others. Thanks for posting this Scot!

    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.

  • 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 noisetrade.com for free for a bit…
