Jonathan Harder

About Jonathan...

I was born in 1950, and started writing songs when I got my first guitar for Christmas of 1963.  In my lifetime I have worked many jobs, from truck driver to store manager to franchise owner, but music has always been my true love. I have played in multiple bands and played uncountable solo gigs. Now I am (finally) retired, and looking forward to a life filled primarily with music.
