Derek Webb...

"I have never, ever felt like a “Christian artist.” I don’t live like that, I don’t create that way; those categories mean nothing to me. I don’t think they mean anything to anybody. I don’t think they’re real. I don’t think there’s any such thing as Christian art or secular art. I think there are Christian and secular people, who make art, and all art tends to reflect the people who make it, but there’s no such thing as “redeemed art.” And if there is, I can guarantee you, I’m not the guy making it."

-Derek Webb (interview with John Wofford, Patrol Mag)

PS-If you haven't listened to Webb's new album "Stockholm Syndrome," do yourself a favor: go out and buy it now.

I see his point.
The only song of his I really know is "Wedding Dress," and I love it. I'll have to listen to some of his others too.
