Hadnot Creek

Hard World 

4 December 2020
Charlottesville-based Indie Folk Rock group Hadnot Creek lean into the darker side of life on new album “Hard World.” These bold Southern stories may hit a little too close to home, which made this an appropriate album to finish off 2020.

From the Artist:

Hard World is a late-night drive into a world filled with wrong turns and dead-end streets. It’s wide blend of pop folk musings, roots rock stompers and fractured southern gothic noir mines a myriad of influences ranging from Johnny Cash and exile period Rolling Stones to the stories of Raymond Carver.
