Because you keep expecting me to respect your opinion because of who you are. And you keep your identity concealed.
It's also clear that your reading skills are challenged. If you can claim I said you were a "CCM Derivative", you did not read what I said. I said your music sounds like it was inspired or "derived" from other CCM performers' music. Not necessarily every CCM performer. What I heard sounded like regular old CCM music of the kind that Time-Life used to crank out on compilation discs. I have stacks of old CDs with titles like "Songs 4 Worship, Vol I", "Songs 4 Worship, Vol II", "Songs 4 Worship, Vol III", "Songs 4 Worship, Vol IV", and so on. CCM as a genre includes a mishmash of copies of secular music styles, all homogenized for use in contemporary music worship, especially at churches that are part of the "non-denominational denomination". So, while not every artist or band who works in the CCM genre sounds alike, there is a commonality of sound that puts a song in that genre.
You've made no secret that you think sampling one or two songs by a band or artist is sufficient to know what their music is all about. I've sampled at least two of your songs, so, by your standards, that means I know enough about the style of your music to form a valid opinion.
So, until I know who the hell you are. Until I can look up your discography, or visit your website and check out your past tour dates, and otherwise do the kind of routine research I would do for any artist or band I had recently discovered, to me you are just a braggart hiding behind a deliberate cloak of anonymity.
If you can put "'Dead flies in the ointment of the apothecary causeth it to send forth a stinking savor, so does a little bit of folly in a very wise man' - King Solomon" at the bottom of every single post, then you can put your real name and contact information.
The bedrock foundation of good music is great songs. I'd rather hear a cover of a great song than a bad original song.
