I'm chris hardy. musician, songwriter, goofball. i live in Augusta, Georgia with my amazing Novelist wife Victoria. used to live in Burlington, NC. went to school in Melrose, MA. was born in Maine & lived there briefly. Victoria & i used to play as a duo called "3 feet up". we released 4 cds and played over 300 shows between 2004 and 2010.

now i record my own music by myself under the name "chris hardy world" (among other similar names) and i perform solo with my piccolo bass guitar as "chris hardy & his 4-stringed little friend", playing oddball classic rock songs from Chicago, Queen, Steely Dan, David Bowie, Hall & Oates, Peter Gabriel and more...

here's a recent performance of mine at Augusta Magazine's "Best Of Augusta" bash (i won "Best Male Vocalist" for the second year in a row):

i play steinberger, alvarez, Hondo II (Matsumoku era) & fender basses, tama, yamaha & rocket shells drums, fender guitars and a korg monotron pocket synthesizer. i record on either my little 8-track tascam dp-008, dp-32sd 32-track recorder or my fostex 80 reel to reel recorder.
