Songwriting Style and Denominations
Naturally, a songwriter’s denominational background influences their lyrics’ doctrinal content. But does it also show through in their songwriting style?
But would a songwriter from a Calvinist background emphasize a precisely constructed lyric in a systematic-theology-sort of way?
Would a songwriter from a Charismatic background tend to gravitate towards subjective “me-and-Jesus” songs?
Would a songwriter from an Independent Fundamentalist Baptist background, by contrast, tend toward definitive, objective doctrinal proclamations that leave no room for misunderstanding and misinterpretation?
Would a songwriter from a Pentecostal background dash down a song as it occurred to them, sticking with spur-of-the-moment inspiration, much like Pentecostal sermons?
