DEREK WEBB WOWS CRITICS AGAIN WITH STOCKHOLM SYNDROME

Stockholm Syndrome has proven to be the latest masterpiece from INO Records’ Derek Webb, which has quickly garnered adoration from both critics and fans. The album landed in the No. 66 spot on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 2 at CBA Retail raking in over 7,500 units.

Below is just a sample of the media buzz from Webb’s September 1 release:

“This spine-tingling ballad is one of the more sonically gentle tracks on the new Stockholm Syndrome, a groovy, searing testament to Webb’s musical and spiritual restlessness. But the message packs plenty of punch.” – USA Today, speaking of the song “Heaven” featured as their ‘pick of the week’

“… most unusual and best release to date.” – Relevant

“The music here is so mesmerizing that Webb can say whatever he wants and get away with it.” – HM Magazine

“Derek Webb’s exhilarating, subversive masterpiece.” – Patrol Magazine

“Atop an electronically mashed-up mosaic of several decades’ worth of pop styles, Webb lends his Bono-esque voice to lyrics rooted in the awareness that rendering unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto God what is God’s is not always easy.” – World Magazine

“The tunesmith tackles topics as diverse as race, politics and sexuality, all wound around an unmistakable spiritual foundation that may push buttons for more conservative listeners, but are likely to make listeners of any faith background do some serious soul searching.” – CCM

“I’m honestly am in awe of my fans. It’s so encouraging to call upon your tribe and have them respond so loudly with their support. Now we’re going to take Stockholm Syndrome to them one city at a time to celebrate,” says Webb.

Fans have also responded in a big way with Stockholm Syndrome helping it land in the top 5 on the iTunes ® Christian/Gospel chart. iTunes ® also offered video content on songs such as “Jena & Jimmy” and “The Spirit vs. the Kick Drum” taken from the hour-long documentary on the making of Stockholm Syndrome, entitled Paradise Is A Parking Lot. You can also view pieces from the documentary on Webb’s website, www.derekwebb.com.

Webb’s “Black Eye Tour” will kick-off next week in Louisville, KY on September 17. The tour will include special guest Sandra McCracken and will hit over 20 markets.

A founding member of the Houston, Texas-based Caedmon’s Call, singer/songwriter Derek Webb has seen career sales approaching one million records, 10 Dove Award nominations, a Billboard Music Video Award nod and six No.1 radio hits. Webb’s innovative music marketing and distribution strategies have received national news coverage in USA Today and the LA Times.
