About Rodney

Previous Fields

  • Full Name
    Rodney Rawlings
  • Description
    I am a Toronto Objectivist. In 2011 after many and varied struggles in the field of music I turned to writing specifically art songs. Now, so far, I have had my art songs and concert band pieces performed in Toronto; in Austin, Texas; in Chicago; in Chautauqua, New York; in Geneva, Illinois; in Elgin, Illinois; and in Munster, Indiana. I write the lyrics to almost all my songs, which concern reverence, aspiration, romance, independence, and the future. These themes also occur in those songs for which I have adapted an existing text.

About Me

I have had my art songs and concert band pieces performed in Toronto (where I live); in Austin, Texas; in Chicago; in Chautauqua, New York; in Geneva, Illinois; in Elgin, Illinois; and in Munster, Indiana. I write the lyrics to almost all my songs, which typically concern or express reverence, aspiration, romance, independence, and the future. These themes also occur in those few songs for which I have adapted an existing text.
