Rich Hardesty is an independent artist from LaPorte, Indiana. His passion for music began early when his mother started him on piano lessons at the age of 8 sitting on the bench next to him. As he grew older, he taught himself guitar, harmonica, a little percussion, and the art of performing on a unicycle on a treadmill. He then decided to record his first album, “Jones’n”, in 1992. This album launched his 20+ year music career once his college fans went crazy over the album.
