Who is Derek Webb?

Derek Walsh Webb is an American singer-songwriter who first entered the music industry as a member of the band Caedmon's Call, and later embarked on a successful solo career. As a member of the Houston, Texas-based Caedmon’s Call, Webb has seen career sales approaching 1 million records, along with 10 GMA Dove Award nominations and three Dove Award wins and six No. 1 Christian radio hits.

In 2003, Webb left Caedmon's Call to pursue a solo career. Since his departure, he has released seven studio albums, a live album, two compilation albums, two covers projects, two DVDs, and two EPs. While these have been less commercially successful than his work with Caedmon's Call, Webb has had more of a free hand to shape his work to his vision.

On April 17, 2014, Webb and his wife, fellow singer-songwriter Sandra McCracken, announced that their marriage was coming to an end after thirteen years due to Webb's involvement in an extramarital affair.

His latest album, I Was Wrong, I'm Sorry & I Love You, was released on September 3, 2013.
