Another scorcher from CDW

My man Charles Dodd White has another great piece of fiction that just went live at Fried Chicken and Coffee entitled "Give Up And Go Home, Jasper". It's short, sweet, and relentless.

Shipwrecked

Of all the songs I've written I don't think any have had quite the "legs" as "Shipwrecked". Written nearly three years ago, and recorded about two, "Shipwrecked" has won Best Indie Song on Ourstage, was featured in the film Sneakers & Soul, and has generally been the best received song I ever recorded. And all this, at least a year after Noble Three split up.

The song has a slightly complicated origin, in that the lyrics are both a metaphor for my declining interest in pursuing music as a profession and a literal telling of a belief that has grown in me for years. I guess, I'll tackle these one at a time.
