Riding on the momentum of a successful worship project and multiple 2002 Dove Award nominations, Caedmon’s Call sets out on select dates this fall in support of its September 2001 release, In The Company Of Angels: A Call to Worship. Nearly a year since the album’s launch, continued enthusiasm for the record has prompted the band to extend its tour, which will visit venues in eleven states, including an appearance at the Billy Graham Crusade in Dallas, Texas October 17th.
In response to the album’s phenomenal feedback and request for additional tour dates, Caedmon’s Call plans to give focus to another round of concerts, before moving its attention to a new studio project, slated for a spring 2003 release. The band will perform its hits that have helped sell more than a million recordings, including “Before There Was Time” and “Who You Are” from In The Company of Angels. Independent singer/songwriter, Randall Goodgame, who joined Caedmon’s Call on the spring leg of the tour, will team-up with the group on all dates.
“Our goal in concert is to provide a well-balanced Caedmon’s Call experience,” comments the band’s frontman Cliff Young. “We will perform old songs, new songs and songs that will require the audience’s participation. We believe this will be our best tour yet.”
Acclaimed by consumers and industry alike, In The Company Of Angels continues Caedmon’s Call’s tradition of consummate musicianship. Each group member again lent his talents to both the lyrical and musical production of the project, which garnered a 2002 Dove Award nomination for “Praise and Worship Album of the Year,” as well as a nod for best “Recorded Music Packaging.” In The Company of Angels is the band’s first full-length recording since 2000’s Long Line of Leavers and contains both original songs and traditional hymns, including the current Adult Contemporary radio single “We Delight.”
Celebrated internationally, Caedmon’s Call’s first national, self-titled release set a record for the most units sold in its first week out by a debut contemporary Christian artist and was ranked No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Album Chart. Since then, the band has amassed a stream of accolades, including an Album of the Year Dove Award, a Billboard Music Video Award nomination and six No. 1 radio singles. Caedmon’s Call is currently in the studio recording its fourth Essential Records release, out spring 2003.
Randall Goodgame began performing at the age of 15. Following high school, he spent four years playing with the Black Creek Band, which included Ryan Newell of Sister Hazel fame. Shortly thereafter, Goodgame moved to Nashville to pursue a solo career. As his unique style caught music fans’ attention, Goodgame became a regular on the bar, club and college circuits, as well as in churches and coffeehouses across the country.
