Interesting situation I've found myself in. I've been casually looking for a side project over the past few weeks, anything from a cover band to another originals band. Yesterday I was in touch with a singer/songwriter gal who's looking for a bass player. We emailed back and forth a little bit. I listened to her material, checked out her web page - WOW! The gal has an awesome voice, writes great tunes w/ elements of funk, jazz, folk, even metal, is a killer lyricist, very friendly and is absolutely drop dead gorgeous - really a perfect formula for a performer. So what's the "catch"? Well, I listened carefully to the lyrics and there are themes of Christ and salvation and such in some of the songs, when I spoke to her on the phone it became clear that she's a Christian songwriter. I was born and raised a Christian but am not particularly devout.. I'm kind of ambigous towards Christian music I guess. Dont love it dont hate it. I generally just stay away from religion or politics but the gal writes killer songs that I'd love to contribute to. Hmmm... I know we have some Christian bass players here so I'm throwing some quite naive questions your way. Tell me about this arena of music- what does this sort of music entail? Are there many venues to showcase this? I understand that a purpose of the style is to spread God's word, but what if you are just a so-so Christian and simply like the tunes?? This is all kind of funny in a way - I feel like the guy in a joke thread a couple weeks ago who didnt know that he was in a Christian band!
