Jonathan Harder

Jonathan Harder

About Jonathan...

My first guitar was a Christmas present from my parents when I was 13 years old. I wrote my first songs early the following January, and never looked back! Throughout my life, music has been my passion, my therapy, and my primary creative outlet. I have performed in various venues, both as a band member and as a solo singer/songwriter (always keeping my day job). Now retired, I am able to devote more of my time to music. Who could ask for more?

Missi Spinosa
