Joe is a songwriter of great depth and variety and is a first class live performer whether solo or with his band. His emphasis on excellence is obvious to everyone. He has been playing stages of all sizes for over 10 years, and is at home in a church hall, a pub or a festival having honed his craft in all three.
The end of 2016 saw the release of his debut album ‘Without Borders’ - a mixture of acoustic tracks through to Pop and all out Rock. He has a desire to tell a story and draw others into the process. Without Borders was the result of two years of writing, during this time Joe penned over 60 songs expressing different parts of his journey and telling the story of people he was meeting.
Since the release of Without Borders Joe has been leading worship and performing at churches and events all over the UK and into Europe. 2019 saw the release of his EP ‘Hold Me Still’ - recorded live in a local Church, a collection of new and re-arranged songs in an acoustic format. In 2020 Joe released 'Waiting' - written and recoded in lock down during the coronavirus pandemic. Through 2021 he was involved in the birthing of new songs based in the local church through YCC Worship. He has recently taken on a role of overseeing New Wine Worship and has a desire to see people encounter God across the nation.
Joe is a very experienced artist who can perform or lead worship, solo or with his band, at a wide range of events.
“Joe is a songwriter of great depth and variety and is a first class live performer whether solo or with his band. Not only that these are all great songs, they are all very different yet still gel together as a complete album. I don't think I have heard in a long time a male vocalist who is so diverse in his vocals from track to track. Joe Hardy has made a stunning album.” Extract from LTTM 4.5/5 review of ‘Without Borders’
