Daniel Hardin is a singer/songwriter and guitarist out of NYC who is influenced by a wide range of rock, funk, and roots music.
His 2nd album features musicians that he has long looked up to as a young musician. some notable examples being “Blow You Away” featuring a solo from Mark Lettieri of Snarky Puppy and The Fearless Flyers, as well as baritone guitar work from guitarist Ariel Posen. Posen is also featured playing in his signature slide-guitar style on the slow, emotive acoustic track, “Stray”.
Fall 2020 also saw the release of the “Heaven” EP, a small selection of more acoustically driven songs that encompass a more introspective side of his writing, grappling with themes that were fitting for such a year of growth, trial, and quietness. In 2021 he released his third full length album “Rock Music for the Honda CR-V”. It is a moodier, darker mix of songs, that are drum-heavy and specially optimized for the 2015 Honda CR-V LX in Mountain Air Metallic Blue. Though it will also sound good in other vehicles.
2022 and 2023 have involved a consistent stream of singles leading up to the release of his 4th album that features artists such as guitarist/songwriter Ariel Posen and Irish Singer-Songwriter KONL. This album is a mellow mix of more acoustically centered songs inspired by artists such as Ray Lamontagne and Jason Isbell.
