Every generation possesses individuals that leave lasting impressions on their mastered fields. These individuals yearn to craft art with longevity at mind, and as a result, history is amended to include the art produced by those individuals proven by the test of time, or at least the story thereof. Unfortunately, today’s society fosters few individuals of that mentality. Contrarily, one of those few is at hand in the person of A. Hardin, also known as “groove”, founder and owner of grooveworksENT.
With a lifetime of music playing in his ears as much as his heart, A. Hardin strives to rank among individuals who have set standards as producers and composers in the music industry. Beginning musical training on the piano at the age of 5, and having shown the desire years prior to that age, he went about his music with a certain tenacity that would only serve as a precursor, foreshadowing the drive that he would carry years later. In the years to follow, he would obtain training on 5 other instruments, of which he still pursues today. At the age of 16, A. Hardin began to focus his thoughts and concepts into melodic and rhythmic ideas. By the age of 20, he had ventured into territory unknown to him, and emerged a success having produced his first CD “…a Christmas groove”, made available for sale during the 2004 Christmas season at a Florida Nordstrom location, of which he was employed as a pianist and musical entertainer. Being from Maryland and traveling to Florida as an intern for Disney, having taken the personal initiative to make his talent known in a city as unfamiliar to him as he was to it and arising successfully with the respect of those encountered remains perhaps his most defining moment, and most certainly a moment of confirmation. Volumes remain spoken by this story of a foreigner amongst natives. Three years later, with a gospel chart topping single with the independent artist company, hundreds of tracks produced, two live recordings realized, multiple albums under construction, and a musician to a host of churches and groups, A. Hardin continues the pursuit of mastery in his field. A respected music major of Salisbury University, he seeks the knowledge behind his craft, and works valiantly at polishing and personally perfecting that craft.
Nonetheless, as much as words can say about such an individual with dreams of leaving lasting impressions and with longevity at mind, the music of A. Hardin sounds for itself. Present is the opportunity to take part in his life notated musically. Sounds that will shock. Sounds that will soothe. There is much to be heard in the music of a man who has experienced so much so young. Delve into the art of his music. The crafting. The meaning. The intrinsic resolve.
love life. live love.

Great work on the "Human Nature" cover. That's the tune I've been singing all through this sad event. Maybe the best song he wrote?
