B.Hardy successfully manages to blend his raspy voice, unique cadences and heady lyricism with versatile instrumental tracks to blur the lines between genres.


Stepping into the booth and steamrolling over tracks is a daily task on the to-do list for Dallas-based rapper B.Hardy. Eight audio projects in, the Dallas-based lyricist’s music—characterized by its highly verbose word play, wittiness and personal observation—keeps listeners alert and awaiting the next vocal gem. “My comfort level and versatility is high. I say what needs to be said. I can have fun with it or if I have something on my mind, I can get that out,” he says. “I have more capacity for that. There's no fear.”


B.Hardy’s most recent projectPSYCHO: Personal Secrets You Couldn’t Otherwise” was released in January 2013. The album took listeners on an intimate, guided tour inside the rapper’s mind, and amassed more than 30,000 downloads. Many of his shows following the release of “PSYCHO” feature his band, “The Hardy Boys,” adding freedom and unpredictability to his live performances.


His upcoming album is scheduled for a spring 2015 release. The project pairs the usual brand of B.Hardy bravado and introspection with elements of electronic, Euro-pop sounds. “Since ‘PSYCHO,’ I've remained relatively quiet, putting energy into cultivating my new sound and developing new ways to convey my message,” he says.


Honesty, relatability and versatility are motivators for B.Hardy. “I'm hopeful that people see themselves and find some part of themselves in [my music]. If they can't, they haven’t lived.”
