The David Crowder Band (marketed as David Crowder*Band) is a six-piece Christian Modern Worship band from Waco, Texas.

The band began when David Crowder, from Texarkana, Texas, realized that almost half of the students at Baylor University were not attending church, which he found surprising since it is a Christian university. He and Chris Seay started University Baptist Church (Waco, Texas) in 1995 while he was still a student. Crowder led worship there and continued to do so throughout the year. The church's congregation grew, as did the band's lineup.

Crowder began writing songs to incorporate into the worship times at the church and eventually the church released an independent CD, Pour Over Me, followed by All I Can Say in 1999. These CDs brought the band to a wider audience and invitations to festivals and events followed. The band was signed to sixstepsrecords/Sparrow Records and has released six more albums to date.

With their September 2005 release, “A Collision,” David Crowder Band explored a new realm of musical diversity. The album houses a mix of bluegrass, folk, alternative, and worship, woven together with a touch of electronic ambiance. This release landed them the #39 spot on Billboard 200 only one day after its release.

On the same day as the release of “A Collision,” their song "Turkish Delight" was released on the “Music Inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia” compilation album.

On March 19, 2007, the band officially started recording its album titled “Remedy.” Famously controversial rock musician Ted Nugent made a guest appearance on the album, on the song "We Won't Be Quiet". “Remedy” was released on September 25, 2007.

"Church Music” was released on September 22, 2009. The first single off the album is a cover of John Mark McMillan's song "How He Loves". The album was nominated for a Grammy Award at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards for Best Rock Or Rap Gospel Album.
