This rant against "suits" defining artists by genre is as old as the hills
Jailhouse Rock (1957)- Ex-Con Elvis Presley learned country music from a fellow inmate and impresses the music industry. However Elvis really wants to sing rock n' roll over the industry's objection. Elvis becomes a superstar by following his own instincts
The Jazz Singer (1927)- Al Jolson, a rabbi's son, impresses his family and community with his religious singing. However Cantor really wants to sing jazz over their objections. Cantor becomes a superstar by following his own instincts
Even Beethoven struggled against being pigeon-holed
I feel this has run it's course bare in mind OP that not everyone has the same opinion as you. There is no need for the hostile responses you have posted in this thread especially in the condescending manner you have. Calling people who disagree with you short sighted doesn't win you friends tbh and it only serves to fuel drama which we don't tolerate here. We enjoy fair debate without the passive aggressive jabs at other people's opinion.
Think this thread has run its course.
