What exactly went into the creation of Shipwrecked… My Sentiments? How did it come about?
I think a lot of people weren’t really sure what to make of it when it first came out. Music can be that way sometimes.
Musically, I was just trying to do something different; things I wasn’t hearing on the radio. Lyrically, it was emotion mixed with too much intellectualism. It may have been a better idea to go straight from the heart. It’s all a learning process.
There were disappointments and frustrations. There was a sense of isolation and abandonment.
However, there are also themes of forgiveness and hope on this album. Here is the story, the best I can tell it.
