#10 Caedmon’s Call. Caedmon’s Call got it’s start as out as the praise & worship band for Second Baptist, Houston Texas. Derek Webb is back for the groups most recent project, Overdressed. My favorite song is Bus Driver. I know it isn’t very deep but I just like the song. Also, I really like the the international flavor of Share The Well. The picture to the right was taken at during the Share the Well tour. We got to meet the band.
#9 Jars of Clay. Unique sound. Jars of Clay has a unique sound. I like how they use a varitey of instruments. They had a dry spell for a while but their last release Good Monsters is very good. Love Song For A Savior from their debut album is still my one of my favorites.
#8 DC Talk .They really matured over the years that they were together. The guys are still recording individual projects but I miss their collective sound. Check out the video from Jesus Freak.
#7 The Choir. The Choir is Christian alternative/modern rock band that has been around for since the 1980s. They are probably the first alternative band that I heard. The guys have been around for a while and have a lot of talent but have not been accepted or noticed by the mainstream Christian market. One of the things I have always liked about them is their unique sound. Steven Hindalong and Marc Byrd penned the popular worship song God of Wonders. The guys were involved with the City on the Hill Worship Project. Their most recent project Oh How the Mighty Have Fallen is probably their best work. I really like the song Oh How the Mighty Have Fallen.
#6 The Fray. They are a new comer to my list. The Fray is from the UK and have gotten a lot of play on television, radio and just about everywhere else. According to their website after being on tour for most of the past two years are taking a break and working on their next project. The video below is my favorite song How to Save a Life.
#5 Newsboys. Newsboys have been one of my favorites for several years. The Rock Across Australia named Newsboys Artist of the Year for 2007. Shine is still one of my favorite songs.
#4 Eden’s Bridge. Celtic Band Another lesser known group I discovered several years ago is the Celtic Band Eden’s Bridge. I love their rendition of Amazing Grace.
#3 Superchic[k]. My Favorite songs are Anthem and One Girl Revolution. I like the message of Bowling Ball and Princes and Frogs. Favorite albums are Karaoke Superstars and Beauty from Pain. The link on their name will take you to a page where you can listen to their music.
#2 U2 They have been one of my favorites for years except for a brief period in the 90’s. Joshua Tree is my favorite album. Beautiful Day is my favorite song.
#1 Third Day. They are my all time favorite band. Mac Powell has a unique sounding voice. As for a favorite song there are so many: Consuming Fire, Thief, and Love Song. I really like Chronology Vol. 1 & 2 that was released in 2007.
