Christian singer?

Continuing the discussion from How do you fined out where your album was released?:

Why is this artist commented as a Christian singer?
Isn’t religion part of his private life? What value does it have?
Atheist rocker, buddhist rocker, I don’t think we should include religions in disambiguation comments, should we?

Sorry, replying to myself.
It seems to be a genre?

Yep, Christian music and it’s looks like Steve Green is one of the major contempory artist of this genre.

'cos it is a popular area of music. Just have a read of Steve Green’s Wikipedia page and follow a few more of the links. It is a Huge genre. There are a lot of labels directly specialising in it. And many artist’s planet wide working in the field.

There is also Jesus Music - which I thought you may have been aware of :smile:

The main reason that Steve Green got his (christian singer) added was because of confusions already caused with a different Steve Green within the MB database. It is a very common name so the wrong Steve had been credited for work.

If you have been following any of @st3v3p’s edits he has been cleaning up a lot of the Christian Music from his own rather large collection. A lot of the previous data here at MB was very scrappy. I’ve been chasing down the rabbit holes with him at times and it is fascinating seeing all the connections.

Clearly the genre includes most of Bach.
As well as Tavener, Paart and much Bob Dylan.

Nope. Followers of the genre can get very persnickety about what is and isn’t official Christian Music. Back in the ancient times, I was a DJ at a college radio station, and my show followed a Christian Rock show. If I was a few minutes late, I’d come in and the DJ’s would be playing U2. They liked U2 because of their use of Christian themes, but because the band was on a “regular” label and not a dedicated Christian label, they didn’t play U2 during their show.
