When studying at Baylor University in 1996, David Crowder realized that a large amount of the students at the Christian college did not attend church. He decided to start a new church with Chris Seay called University Baptist Church (UBC) in Waco, Texas. Struggling to find music that a college-age congregation would be into, he began to write his own songs. In 1996, he recorded an album with the worship team titled Pour Over Me, which was discovered by Louie Giglio. Although the quality of the album was low, Giglio saw their potential, and, in 1998, helped them to record an album called All I Can Say. In 2000, Giglio started a record label by the name of sixstepsrecords; David Crowder*Band was one of the first acts it signed. The band released 6 studio albums, 1 Christmas album, 4 EPs, and 1 live CD/DVD before they disbanded in January 2012. An "Essential Collection" compilation was also released in 2013, after the band had split up. Four of the band members decided to continue the band under the name of The Digital Age, and Crowder has formed a new collective called Crowder.
The Digital Age is the four-piece continuation of David Crowder*Band, without David Crowder and Hogan. They have released two "Rehearsals" EPs and two full-length albums.
After touring with mostly former DC*B songs for 2 years, Crowder finally released his first solo album in May 2014, followed up by a live EP in November 2015. His second full album, American Prodigal, released September 23, 2016, and his third album released November 9, 2018.
