Paul J Rogers

Releases late July 2024 (Instrumental)

This instrumental track is possibly in a genre of its own – ‘Funk-Jazz Cinema’.

Out of the furnace of the unified field, comes a fun, catchy and eclectic show tune. Once again Paul has done a 180 degree turn, leaving the deep messaging rock tunes and has come up for air with something fun and catchy.

Younger Than Me

Released 5 January 2024

The song title pays homage to the rock-politics of Neil Young, and is not reference to youth, or age.

The song title pays homage to the rock-politics of Neil Young, and is not reference to youth, or age.

The first half of the song has environmental themes and observations from late 2023. On one hand I saw three young preschool kids arrive home from school one day. And then I thought, ‘What a horrible legacy of diminishment and degradation we have left for them'.

Then a few days later, I saw a bunch of kids (from a local private school) getting Uber Eats delivered to the beach. They were 100 meters away from a take-away store. Very lazy, sad, and expensive for the Earth.

It's been easy to point the finger at governments and corporations, but we all have a role to play in reducing our eco-footprint.

The third and fourth verses shift to global of themes of the shutting down of dissenting voices (ie Canadian truckers during the COVID pandemic), as well as the ongoing threat of nuclear war.

The chorus talks of farmers being banned from farming, to meet the agendas of global elites.

The 'new normal' is a constant acceleration of uncomfortable change.

Better batten down the hatches. There’s a storm coming.

I have been a massive fan of the Hunger Games films since 2012. I particularly love the idea of rebellion against the ever-growing reach of the state.

I have been a massive fan of the Hunger Games films since 2012. I particularly love the idea of rebellion against the ever-growing reach of the state.

The last three years have shown us that more of this reclamation is needed to keep agency, and self-determination. This is especially true in terms of the shutting down of civil liberties, mass surveillance and lack of climate action. I tried to capture that urgency here.

No one is coming to save us.

The fire rises.

Long time environmentalist, Paul J Rogers releases his third song about climate change.

In 2019, he released ‘Who’ll Stop the People’ (a song dedicated to Greta Thunberg), as well as ‘Planet in Pain’ (a song dedicated to the anti-coal movement in Australia).

Paul’s new single is a scathing critique of insatiable greed and wanton destruction of the Earth by the fossil fuel industry.

The song title is a reference to air the pollution caused by the burning of fossil fuels.

Verse one speaks to being on the left of politics. Verse two is about the scarcity of resources like food and water. Verse three is about the greed of the energy barons.

Lastly, the chorus is about the challenge of sense-making in an era of misinformation and the draconian silencing of dissent.

We have had at least 35 years of scientific evidence warning us that the fossil fuel industry was cooking the planet. The window to save humanity and the 8 billion species we share the Earth with is rapidly closing.

Speak up. Act Now.
