David Drake – ‘Shooting Arrows At The Sun’

‘Shooting Arrows At The Sun’ is an apt song title. All real musical artists do it: they all aim at the highest point they can and give it all they’ve got. And even though the majority will realise that it’s the journey itself that’s the destination, they’ll still keep shooting those arrows. No less so than Detroit’s David Drake, whose latest single is named thus, and who after a lifetime in music, is still aiming those arrows as high as he can.
