Crowder Sets Sights On Neon Steeple, Marks Solo Debut for May 27, 2014

Includes duet with music legend Emmylou Harris and Top 5 lead single, “I Am”

Crowder headlines “Neon Steeple Tour” with guests All Sons & Daughters and Capital Kings this fall


Nashville, Tenn. (May 1, 2013) – What was originally an idea formed from a stunning image of a steeple on the horizon comes the long-awaited solo debut from critically revered artist and songwriter Crowder. The release of Neon Steeple, out May 27, 2014, continues to highlight Crowder’s knack for innovative songwriting. Among the new tracks is the record’s lead Top 5 single (National Christian Audience) “I Am” as well as a duet with music icon Emmylou Harris on “My Sweet Lord.”

"Neon Steeple is a collection of songs and sounds looking forward to the past and counting the present as sacred," remarks Crowder. "It is a longing for belonging, a search for home. It is a collection of choruses that believe that this is not all there is. It is the sound of the Appalachians and Ibiza. Folk music and EDM. The music of the People. Folktronica. Digital and Analog. The Ones and Zeros and the Handshake. The Banjo and the 808. Neon Steeple is both a critique and a hope."

Neon Steeple is available for pre-order now on iTunes®. All pre-orders come with an instant download of "I Am" and "My Beloved." To pre-order Neon Steeple, visit:

Neon Steeple comes over two years since David Crowder*Band’s final project, Give Us Rest (A Requiem Mass in C [The Happiest of All Keys]). His current single “I Am” peaked at No. 1 on the iTunes® Christian & Gospel Top Songs chart upon its release. The song has enjoyed a steady climb up the charts, currently sitting at No. 5 on the National Christian Audience chart, reaching over 6.6 million people weekly.

In support of Neon Steeple, Crowder will headline a fall tour which kicks off in Springfield, MO on September 30. The tour will include special guests All Sons & Daughters, Capital Kings and Ellie Holcomb on select dates.
