Derek Webb

After 10 years in the Christian folk rock band `Caedmon's Call', 20 more years of solo albums (the majority of which were heavily preoccupied with God & Jesus, heaven & the Bible), it's only now, as Derek Webb no longer identifies as certain of anything, that he finds himself finally and ironically embracing the very thing he bristled at in those early years: ministry. Now I think just as much or more about, well, you. The result is an album full of deeply personal songs that deal boldly and vulnerably with assumptions about invisible reality. The Jesus Hypothesis is both a return to the scene of the deconstruction, genuinely searching for beauty, meaning, and some kind of truth in the rubble, and a return to form, with Derek playing contrarian and reluctant prophet to even (and especially) his own assumptions about what may be just behind the veil.
