MercyMe
is a Christian rock band who first received mainstream recognition with the crossover single “I Can Only Imagine” which elevated their album, Almost There, to double platinum certification. The group has had 13 consecutive top 5 singles on the Billboard Christian Songs chart with 7 of them reaching No. 1. In addition, they have won 8 Dove Awards and have had numerous Grammy Award nominations. Their newest album in The Hurt & The Healer was released in May 2012 and debuted at No. 7 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
 
The Digital Age
2012, a year commonly associated with endings, saw a new beginning for former members of the David Crowder *Band. On the heels of their final project with the DC*B, “Give Us Rest or (A Requiem Mass In C [The Happiest of All Keys])”, Mark, Mike D, Bwack, and Jack sought to continue writing, performing, and producing music together for the Church. Out of this desire, The Digital Age was born.
In the small college town of Waco, TX, home of Baylor University, The Digital Age has its roots planted at University Baptist Church. Throughout the life of the church, the members of the band have been leading worship there in some form or fashion since its inception in 1995. “We really feel at home here and committed to the investment we’ve made in this community, so right away we knew we wanted to stay in Waco.”
The members of The Digital Age believe that the Church is beautiful, diverse, creative, and alive, and that these qualities should be reflected in the music the Church creates. Above all, The Digital Age strives to pursue excellence in all things to further the kingdom of God.
Thus begins the musical journey…
