craig daniel hardin lives on and cares for the farm that has been in his family for generations.
Delivering songs of his north central Florida heritage, cdh adds a current yet rooted sound and conscience with his singing and songwriting.
He sings stories of the people who have and still do live in the area like the cracker cowhunters in Sand and Swamp and the trapper in Back Woods Man. His themes also reveal his love for the earth and help to bring awareness to the importance of its protection in songs like: Home of Sand, Paradise and California Creek. His original music could be classified as an Americana mix of country, rock and blues. His sound has been coined “Swamp Groove”.
While most of the original songs that craig performs come to him while working on the restoration of the native flora and fauna of Florida, he also collaborates with other songwriters to stretch his writing muscles.
