The English Surrey hills and rural Hampshire border countryside provide the backdrop and inspiration for many of Harrowman’s songs, with personal experiences, social observations and local historical tales all thrown into the melting pot. Experiences of the natural world further abroad also seep into the lyrics and themes, from the rugged Australian outback to the misty forests of Southeast Asia.
Harrowman’s debut album ‘Rite of Way’, recorded at NEM WildWood Studios and released in October 2019, portrayed a songwriting talent in full flow, delivering concise storytelling and lyricism at its most urgent and compelling. The 2020 follow up EP, ‘Fugitive’ expanded the ambition of the scope and sound further, serving up a joyful celebration of the natural world as well as a call to arms to conserve and advocate for its protection.
