In the 1970s, Driscoll was touring and recording with major music acts, including Stephen Stills, Leon Russell, Blood, Sweat & Tears, and Joe Cocker—as well as the London Philharmonic Orchestra. After becoming increasingly involved with illegal drug use, Driscoll became a Christian on Christmas Day in 1977. He then gave up using drugs, and dedicated his musical efforts to furthering the Christian faith.

In 1981, Driscoll recorded his first album, "Ten Years After," sharing his new-found Christian beliefs. In 1983, he released "I Exalt Thee," winning a GMA Dove Award for Instrumental Album of the Year.
