Rachael Jean Harris
Liverpool-born Rachael Jean Harris has devoted her life to the writing of songs. Recently, the vast majority have fallen into rich themes surrounding the lives of people on the raw edges of existence. Each lasting several years, these themes become areas for detailed thought, study and research, sparked by real stories, resulting in evocative and poignant tales. Following the acoustic sounds of Just Like He Said (2007), her more electric, grungy, 2013 release, Dig, focused on women and children in conflict zones, suffering in lesser reported corners of our world. Taking real events and accounts and extrapolating these into fully formed narratives, she attempts to place the listener inside the situation and present them face to face with the danger, freedom, longing and defiance that her protagonists experience.
Her current focus is on those living in confinement, in particular, the day to day realities of Death Row inmates in the USA with whom she corresponds. Of interest to her are the complexities of human dignity, longing, memory and the power and potential of mercy.
Nikki started off on the stage as a dancer when she was about 5 years old. At the age of 16, she bought her first guitar and fell into a world of diverse musical discovery. Around this time, she absorbed the musical colours of artists and bands such as Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Tori Amos, Skunk Anansie, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Radiohead, PJ Harvey, Portishead, Massive Attack and so many more amazing musicians that inspire her still to this day.
