Derek Webb of Caedmon's Call fame has come to the forefront of Christian activism. I've enjoyed the music he's produced with the band, Caedmon's Call, but never knew or heard of Derek Webb before I downloaded and listened to the Donald Miller Podcast's I posted about a few months ago.
Webb is passionate about following Jesus' example of being a peacemaker, serving the poor, loving your neighbor, and living what you believe.
He's made his latest album, Mockingbird, free for download at FreeDerekWebb.com. I downloaded it and am really digging his sound. It's an acoustic folk style coupled with a message of Christian social activism. It's cool music that fits well with smart song writing.
