Michael Hardie's Reviews

    Hector Saldana CD Review

    SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS NEWS Singer-songwriter Michael Hardie — with the help of his talented piano-playing daughter, Myla Hardie, adding bluesy harmony vocals and the Infidels’ Michael Martin and George Batista – pulled off a casual, relaxed and, at times, haphazard CD release party Thursday at Joe Blue’s at Blue Star Art Complex. In other words, perfect for a gig celebrating a 10-song record called “Real.” Indeed, sometimes it was kept very real with Hardie (who played acoustic guitar and piano) calling out chord changes to Martin (who added sweet licks on Fender Stratocaster) and Batista, who played mandolin. He called out songs as it suited him. A seasoned artist, Hardie is an unabashed Van Morrison disciple but with an easygoing personality shining through, as well as a distinct Memphis groove. Hints of Delbert McClinton and James Taylor abound. Hardie’s CD (recorded at Blue Cat Studio in Southtown) is one of the best local albums of 2014. Hsaldana@express-news.net

    What do you get when you create an entire album around it quite universal theme of "Love"? Michael Hardie ventured out and the result can be heard on his album "Real" now. Hardie is a songwriter and in his songs you hear all his Texas Roots allows seepage. On his latest album is no different, with varying success, he knows how to translate to various songs. Not to mention, of course, that Michael had already opened at age 19, early 70s for giants like Lightnin 'Hopkins and in the 80s to include Buddy Guy and Junior Wells! his songs he recorded with other heroes like Jesse Ed Davis (John Lennon's favorite guitarist). Also dates his collaboration with Milton Hopkins, cousin of Lightnin 'and later became a mentor to Hardie from that period.But now "Real" So when Hardie explores all facets of love and reflects on aspects such as the excellent title track that opens the album.

    My personal favs songs are indicated with a *. Here we go: These Songs I Leave Behind * My first exposure to Michael's soulful voice. I had to look at the picture again to make sure he's really white. Love Conquers All * Even more soul in Michael's voice on this ballad he plays on piano. Lyrics are again very deep. - that Michael Hardie music is definitely blues influenced, his voice and melodies tend to soul. -He is a singer (and a very soulful one) - He is a songwriter (and a talented one) Laid back melodious song. The text leaves no doubt about how true Michael is in his lyrics. The guy has guts to sing such things. Made me feel small. Moreover, according to my intuition, he must be one of a a hell of a nice guy. That's more than enough to satisfy me :). Vincent.
