Essay, 2009

9 Pages


Abstract or Introduction

Contemporary Christian music has always had its niche in popular music culture. This essay discusses the politics behind the Christian Music Industry in comparison with the mainstream Music Industry, using German hip-hop artist Xavier Naidoo and his album "Telegramm für X" as an example of this discussion in motion. The genre is arguably the most scrutinised in terms of quality and content, particularly when discussing artists' public image in concurrence with the messages they are producing in their music.

Consequently, the essay details the struggles the Christian Music Industry has in competing with mainstream competition, as well as what techniques contemporary Christian artists have had to employ in order for their music to attract a fan base. In short, it brings to the reader's attention the sort of lengths contemporary Christian artists must undertake in order to break into the mainstream and become recognised.
