A very versatile and talented musician and educator, John Hardie puts a fresh face on the blues throughout No Right To Sing The Blues. His vocals are expressive, his lyrics are heartfelt and relevant, and his musicianship is impeccable. He leaves listeners with no doubt that he definitely has the right to sing the blues.
Born in London, John began playing his grandmother’s piano when he was four, starting lessons two years later. “When I was eight, I heard Duane Eddy, saved up my allowance, and bought an electric guitar. While growing up I listened to both the Beatles and jazz. When I got hooked on the Rolling Stones, they became the gateway to the blues.” John played guitar with a band at Saturday morning matinees in movie theaters, graduated to performing at cabarets and theater clubs in the United Kingdom, and led the house trio in several venues, opening for major acts and gaining experience as an accompanist. After studying music at Leeds University for three years (primarily contemporary classical music), he spent most of his twenties as a jazz pianist, leading a quartet in London. He also worked as an arranger and pianist with the Andy Ross Orchestra on the British television series Come Dancing.
John Hardie began visiting California in the 1980s, using Los Angeles as a base for cruise ship and hotel work. After meeting his future wife Linda, he settled in Palm Springs and, along with Linda, founded Willow Creek Productions, a teaching and recording studio. “Willow Creek Productions, which we started in 2005, was a dream that Linda and I had when we first met. It took us two years to get it started, starting with a half dozen students. But now we are at the point where we have a large waiting list of students. I teach jazz guitar players, jazz pianists, rock guitarist and pianists, people who just want to play classical music and even a couple of harmonica students.”
With all of his extensive experience, John has only recently been documenting his own music. On No Right To Sing The Blues, he plays all of the instruments (including three different guitars, harmonica, and keyboards), takes consistently powerful vocals, and contributes all of the music and lyrics. “For this set I included some originals that sound like traditional songs while a few others are completely different than one might expect to find on a blues album.”
