Derek Webb – Democracy Vol 1 #2

27th Feb 10 (Sat) Leave a comment Go to comments

One a month in 2010…

Derek Webb‘s Democracy Vol 1 is rolling along… This month, it’s Coldplay‘s “Fix You.”  It’s OK.  Not as good as last month’s cover of The Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”  But that’s more a function of my view of Coldplay than my view of Derek.  Democracy Vol 1 was part of the Stockholm Syndrome pre-order package, but you can still join in over at the DW store. My plea for Derek to cover Tori Amos’ “Crucify” is likely not gonna happen. Oh well… I like the first two months’ output regardless.

He’s also heading out on a short east coast tour with Jennifer Knapp next month… check it…

Democracy Vol. 1 is the first in a series of subscription based albums of cover songs that Derek will be recording annually, starting January 2010. Those who participate will not only receive the exclusive album, but will democratically decide what songs Derek will record.

Ever wished you could hear Derek cover your favorite Beatles song? Or Backstreet Boys song? Or even re-record your favorite old Caedmon’s Call song? Here’s your chance. Songs will be nominated and voted down to 12. Derek will record them (demo quality) and deliver them digitally (320kbps MP3s), one song per month for 12 months. Don’t miss your chance to be part of this unique collaborative project with Derek Webb!
