Fe: Tell us your name and about yourself
Ridge Hardy: My name is Ridge Hardy, I am 28 years old, I am a creative director. I create things. I've done music for about 5- 6 years. I love making music videos. That is what drew my attention to make music.
Fe: So you have been making music videos longer than you have made music right?
Ridge Hardy: Yes that is correct. I do them myself
Fe: Tell us a little bit about the first song you ever made?
Ridge Hardy: Well my big influence was J Cole so I used his beat. Looking back at it, that project is a little cringy but I've grown from that.
Fe: What is your creative process like?
Ridge Hardy: When I create my music I need to do it in silence so I can focus. It helps me.
Fe: How important is it for you to be authentic in your music
Ridge Hardy: It is super important. I want to be real. I don’t like hearing that I sound like another artist because I am me and I create my music. One thing that I started in December was starting my show. I have a lot of local vendors where we perform our music and all that.
Fe: Tell us about your latest project and what it is about.
Ridge Hardy: My latest series is called Red Balloon and there is Red Balloon 2 and 3 as well. It is just a compilation of me going through my emotions and what I have been through. My next project will come out in October. "Fast Food" and I have 6 projects on that.
Fe: So what can we expect from you until then?
Ridge Hardy: Well Like I said in October I will release a project, don’t have a name for it yet, I usually wait until everything is complete. When I write my music I do that as well.
Fe: Where can people follow you and get your music?
Ridge Hardy: You can find me on all streaming platforms Ridge Hardy along with my socials. I understand how hard it is to be an artist so I am grateful to get to where I am right now and continue to do what I love to do. All of my shows with drinks included, etc.
