My name is Arthur Pope. I sing. I play guitar. I write songs. Most are about Jesus. Many are about girls. I am 20 years old. I live in Missouri. My goal, in regards to music, is to become an established independent Christian recording artist, and to earn a modest income through those means. I came about the decision to actively pursue a career in music after three semesters of Bible college. It was then that I decided I have no desire to become a worship minister, and that songwriting will always be my greatest ambition.
My sound is always subject to change, but at present, my music is largely acoustic guitar driven, due to that being what I'm most comfortable writing with. Lyrically and musically my songs tend to gravitate toward the melancholy, however I usually like to bring in a strong sense of hope. I strive to write honest music, and I rarely sugarcoat things (though I do pride myself in my ability to write thought provoking and insightful lyrics, which are just as poetic as they are powerful). I have been compared to artists such as Derek Webb, Jars of Clay, and Incubus.
When I can. I don't have an album to promote yet, so it's not that crucial.
Pretty much everything I listen to influences me to some degree, I'm sure.
I've been told that Derek Webb reminds people of me.
Decide for yourself.
