    Caedmon's Call is a contemporary Christian band that fuses folk-rock with adult alternative rock influences. Cliff Young (vocals, rhythm guitar), Derek Webb (lead guitar, vocals), Danielle Glenn (vocals), Aric Nitzberg (bass), Todd Bragg (drums), Randy Holsapple (organ) and Garett Buell (percussion) formed the Houston, Texas-based band at Texas Christian University in the summer of 1992. The group originally included Aaron Tate, who left the band shortly after its formation, but he continued to write songs with Young. After spending some time playing locally, Caedmon's Call began touring college campuses across the South, steadily building up a dedicated following of young Gen-X singles.

    Caedmon's Call self-released their first album in June of 1994. In August of 1995, they released their second record. Both independently released albums sold over 10,000 copies apiece, and were distributed in Canada and the U.K. as well as America. The two albums, plus their live shows, led Musician magazine to call Caedmon's Call one of the best unsigned bands in America. Such grassroots success attracted the attention of Warner Brothers, who signed the band in 1996 and released their major-label debut, the Don McCollister-produced Caedmon's Call, in the spring of 1997. Long Line of Leavers was issued three years later, and despite a good reaction from their fanbase, it signaled to the group that they desired more control over their sound. The next year, In the Company of Angels: A Call to Worship was recorded by the band, and its success in the Christian market led to their highest sales yet. When the album was nominated for several Dove Awards, the band decided to continue to produce their own material and recorded Back Home in 2002. Released the following spring, the band hit the road with Jars of Clay to promote the release.
