Have you ever heard of what's called a "working title"? In the creative process, a working title is defined this way: "A working title, sometimes called a production title, is the temporary name of a product or project used during its development, usually used in filmmaking, television production, novel, video game, or music album."
In the case of "Catfish Sandwich" we have run into what is turning out to be a SURPRISE working title. As the process has hummed along, a new theme has emerged that trumps our Kickstarter theme and retires the Catfish to working title status.
"Sun Comes Up Tomorrow" is a line from Recession Song, which has risen to the top as one of the best songs on the project. Recording the song was a fantastic process that highlighted a Kickstarter studio pub choir and finished off with a Facebook generated pub choir at Trinity Hall in Dallas. That night, as we looked around at the beautiful, motley crew of folks that came out to raise their mugs and belt a hopeful song, we felt a shift in focus setting in. There is a thread of hope running through every song on this album and hope is what we want the listener to be left holding. So, "Sun Comes Up Tomorrow" it is.
To us, the term "Catfish Sandwich" will always symbolize our entry and re-entry into a crazy, risky, fulfilling life as songwriters and musicians. It's a code phrase of ours that you now know and get. It's on a t-shirt that will be a Kickstarter exclusive collector's item!
