Rich Hardesty Band
Rich’s style beautifully blends the sounds of Reggae, Americana, Country, Folk and Rock ’n Roll to deliver music that is authentically Rich. His music is truly a reflection of his life.
Rich hails from Little Nashville, Indiana, has released 16 independent albums and has toured nationally with some of the biggest names in music including Pepper and Slightly Stoopid. Rich has recorded with Greg Wright from Michael Jackson/Mick Fleetwood, Dig Lewis from Tina Turner/Stevie Wonder, Michael Smith from The Why Store and has recorded with multi Grammy award winning engineer and producer Chad Carlson. Rich was also featured in a movie with John Oates of Hall & Oats fame.
Rich’s career took off with his hit “break up song” from his college days at IU University. This put him on the map and led to his 20-year run of selling out venues all over the country.
Rich has toured all over the U.S. as well as internationally in Australia and Jamaica, where he recorded his album “The Sunset Show” with major reggae artists including Julian Marley, Bongo Herman, and Sly Dunbar. After recording this record, he was asked to play at Bob’s 71st birthday at the Marley Museum in February 2016. He then played with some of the Marley’s and The Wailers at The Vogue Theater in Indianapolis, IN.
Rich has a musical magnetism about him. His fans love him for both who he is and the music he creates. His ability to guide listeners on a journey from island jungles to the corn fields of Indiana and to the beaches of the world through music and back again is unmatched in its depth and authenticity. Dive into the ocean of Rich’s music and let him paint his pictures in the landscape of your mind.
