Biography

ST, a proud member of the Cherokee Nation, was trained in classical piano and has played the keyboards since her youth. She is fluent at reading music as well as playing by ear. While known to pick up a guitar on occasion her heart at this time lies in the keys. A strong performer, on several songs ST will carry the beat while performing musical leads.
Bobby started playing the congas 1995 he plays by ear and can make no sense out of all those squiggly lines on music sheets! Bobby has moved his improvisational drumming techniques to the drum set and while on some songs he will carry the beat he prefers to provide color and character to the music. His maverick percussion style has been described as musical, melodic and sensitive. ST and Bobby both perform vocals.
After being in an Eric Clapton cover band and then a party band for several years Bobby and ST started writing and performing their own music.
As married best friends they work together during the day selling performance car parts, restoring sports cars and doing modifications to vehicles. They draw their music inspirations from work, travels, beliefs and love of life. The cars have a big influence in how and when they write their songs as does the local culture and the ‘Red Road’. Animals also play a big part in the duo’s life. The Rubin Dali Band is named after, Rubin and Dali, two Irish Setters that were their first fans.

Lyrics

Never Changes

Written By: ST Harris

Wampum, Pow Wow, Silver, Turquoise
We are more than these.
Blankets, Conchos, Shells and Jet,
We are more than these.
Look out over this earth
Feel it deep inside,
This part never changes,
We are a piece of this.

Chorus:
Hi E Yi E Yi He Yi
Hi E Yi E Yi
Hi E Yi E Yi He Yi
Hi E Yi E Yi

Great Spirit, Shaman, Warrior, Medicine Man,
We are all of these.
Bearskin, Tipi, Smoke Signals, Drums,
We are more than these.
Look out over Mother Earth
One with changing tide,
This part never changes,
We are a piece of this.

Chorus

Sequoyah, Black Elk, Cochise, Sheba
We are wise like them.
Crazy Horse, Geronimo, Sitting Bull,
We are strong like them.
Loook out over Mother Earth
Know things deep inside,
This part never changes,
We are at peace with this.

Chorus

Tune Town

Written By: ST Harris

Every night I drive my car
To Tune Town, I’ve found
I see the lights, I know I’m there
I’m downtown in Tune Town.
If I feel blue in a funky stew
Or just wound down
I hear the music, I feel the night
Check the lost and found.

Chorus:
In Tune Town, it’s a boomtown
Not a doom town.
Leave now, holy cow
Come on downtown to Tune Town.
There’s no need to frown
Lay your money down
Make your sigh profound
In Tune Town, In Tune Town, In Tune Town.

Years ago when the earth was slow
As we spun round.
Life was more than a spending floor
For what’s going round.
People knew when the moment rang true
Barked the old hound.
To each moment bound
With each breath found
By our own sound,
Our own sound, our own sound.

Chorus

So let the bumble bee
Let the wind blow free
You are not bound.
Let the dogs from the pound
Change the pitcher on the mound
Till the bare ground.
It can be in a car, a laugh or a star
And you’re in bound, you’ll be found.

Chorus

Spider Travels

Written By: Bobby Harris & ST Harris

Spider travels down that long silver thread.
Electric crosses line the miles left to tread.
The sun a mighty serpent beats down overhead.
A wreath of heat and light on his fiery coat of red.
His journey started in sixty-nine.
From the Italian boot it lead across the sea,
To a land so free, and the endless silver thread.

Chorus
Mile after mile on that silver thread
Spider spin your web.
Mile after mile on that silver thread
Forward dreams ahead.

Many colors scattered East and West.
Distinct and different yet the same crest.
A call came up from Santa Fe heard cross the land.
Together we will meet in the warm adobe sand.
Clouds whisper in the hot blue sky,
Dissolved by serpents fire it burns so deep
That he wants to sleep, but it’s dangerous to tire.

Chorus

The heart of him blueprinted deep inside.
One Seven Five O dual Weber ride.
Five grand, fifth gear, the pace intense and tough.
He knows his tribe is nearer with every mesa and bluff.
Day turns to night, but it’s still all right.
He sees beyond his touch, guided by the beam
Shining so brightly in the rays of Amplilux.

Chorus

Great Spirit

Written By: ST Harris

Sad Mother Nature One slowly shuffles by
Hates to bother us.
Her vague story, her neighbor bit her dog
Can we spare some change?
I look around us in this enchanted land
It’s so beautiful here.
Pink mesas rise up and command
Indian blanket skies.

Chorus:
Great Spirit, guide her safely home.
Soften as she goes.
Give her moments of great clarity.
I ask you this Great Spirit.
From one you’ve blessed Great Spirit.
For me this Great Spirit.
To ease, ease my mind.
Ease ease my mind.

This old crumpled up george washington
Appreciated here.
Along the highways signs tell the stories of
A people capitalized.
Vague prison dealt by some ancient hand.
It’s not unrecognized.
In all this beauty, the sad sight of her.
I look up to the skies.

Chorus

Drive

Written By: Bobby Harris & ST Harris

One Hundred Eighty-five, sometimes I like to drive.
I push it to the floor, until there is no more.
Whatever road I’m on, the engine sings its song.
Twin cam hemi head, its coat Italian,
Its coat Italian, Its coat Italian red.

Chorus:
Axels turning, tires burning, smoke in the mirrors.
Six thousand, seven thousand, shifting through the gears.
Axels turning, tires burning, smoke in the mirrors.
Six thousand, seven thousand, shifting through the gears.

My car feels so alive, the canyons open wide.
The world seems to unfold, as I fly down this road.
A twisting turning path, ahead of me today.
There’s green grass on both sides,
The silver thread, the silver thread,
The silver thread unwinds.

Chorus

Tail lamps far ahead, rotors glowing red,
I’m closing in real fast, I hope my brakes will last.
Oil temp running high, fuel tank running dry,
Slow down let it cool, pull off to, pull off to,
Pull off to refuel.

Chorus
