About Rob Harris as a Songwriter
Most of us love music. Songs can provide warmth inside a damp room.
Press play. Hold our breath. A mood changing new melody?
Some mind-bending lyrics? Some element that will make us look at the world differently, maybe take us out of our comfort zone? Challenge our thinking.
I have always been interested in why mankind is driven in so many different directions. Put simply: How we can create so many amazing things and yet wield so much destruction on each other and the environment.
I reflect constantly about the nature of what we call “our society”. How we separate ourselves from the rest of the natural world.
I reflect on the never-ending contradiction of human beings on this planet;
the amazing things we can create and do to help each other,
versus the brutal way we treat our environment and
make war with each other on both a large and individual scale.
