fast lane, his music is an experience in life, love, and leisure.The top selling independent artist from Indiana continues to create a soundtrack for our lives.
In the summer of 2005, Rich Hardesty will be releasing his eighth studio album. Returning to his roots, the tunes have an acoustic, feel-good vibe with rock, reggae, and hip-hop influences.This self-titled project is a journal of his trip trough the path less traveled.

successful career. Established through grassroots marketing advanced with technology, Rich continues to expand the horizon.
â€œRich is a true American Idol, in every sense of the word, that should
looked for and cherished in this newly â€˜generation Xâ€™edâ€™ age. He is the
breath of fresh air that seems to missing.â€
