When Geoff Moore was signed to Sparrow in 1987, he put together a backing band called "The Distance". In 1988, Geoff Moore and the Distance released their first official album together, entitled A Place to Stand. They also recorded Foundations in 1989 for Sparrow Records. After a while, they jumped to Forefront Records and recorded Pure and Simple in 1990. They followed in 1992 with A Friend Like U. This album would garner them their first real US Christian radio exposure with its title song. This started their most prolific period with the Grammy winning albums Ev-O-Lu-Tion in 1993 and Homerun in 1995. This album produced US Christian radio hits like "EvolutionRedefined", "Life Together" and "Home Run". The video for "Home Run" featured former Major League All Star pitcher Tim Burke. They were nominated for four Grammys.

In 1995, Benson released a compilation of hits from Moore's first solo albums titled The Beginning Years. The following year the band released a compilation of hits from Moore and the Distance. One CD of the latter contained a live performance from Rome, Georgia, also recorded for Z Music Television.
