Podington Bear

Podington Bear, originally an anonymous pseudonym, revealed himself as Chad Crouch upon completion of the marathon of songcraft begun early 2007, in which he recorded and released 156 songs. Podington, or ‘P Bear’ as he has come to be called, was emboldened to share each of his instrumental songs freely via podcast: each episode contained one song, freshly composed and recorded. The music surprised expectations, garnering accolades from critics big and small. Soon, a loyal following compelled the bear / Chad to issue his recordings as a collection: A box set which swelled to no less than ten CDs for which The End will serve as a capstone.
