“A lot of the music is very sparse, that I make, and it is very inquisitive and somewhat open ended, and doesn’t have easy answers or easy melodies. It doesn’t conform to an easy form. Sometimes it’s downright uncomfortable but never confrontational."
Robert Rich sat down with Stephen Hill of Hearts of Space Radio to speak a bit about his new album “Lift a Feather to the Flood”, and his younger years that molded him into the artist he is today. From camping on a valley as a teen, to becoming the artist he is now, Robert Rich has used nature, as well as human connections and interactions as influences for his music. For Robert Rich, each album is a new set of explorations.
On naming the album, Robert Rich states, “Lift a Feather to the Flood – coming out of a discussion with Markus Reuter about how art can react to the world and what is a sermonic gesture, why art being a useless thing, something that has no function in the world can still … be a form of honesty that is powerful, a useless thing that is able to speak the truth.”
“Lift a Feather to the Flood” is an all acoustic album. With a focus on making the album ambiguous, Robert wants listeners to delve into his music and make them think while listening. Rich states “with music and this type of music, one could guide each listener to take themselves into a personal space and become more alive.”
