1990 Hugh Harris – Words For Our Years

Hugh Harris (born 1964) is an English musician, most known for his song “Rhythm Of Life”.

Hugh Harris was born in London in 1964. He released his first, critically acclaimed album “Words For Our Years” in 1989 that featured his only hit to date “Rhythm Of Life”; featured in the film Uncle Buck. His first album garnered critical acclaim, and Harris’ style was compared to both Prince, Terence Trent D’arby and female vocalist Tracy Chapman.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Harris was in a low-key relationship with Sinéad O’Connor. His song “Seven Days” was on the soundtrack for Kalifornia, and was subsequently included on his 2002 album Flowers.

For unknown reasons Harris disappeared from the music scene soon after his success, thus stalling what could be regarded as a promising musical career.
