John Tardiff by email:

John is the pioneer of the new Acoustic Edge sound. Rock Folk Pop.
Yes, it hints of all of them. With an edge.
His first CD “Just Out of Reach”, showcases a blend of catchy melodies, urgent, insightful lyrics, and a great singing voice.

“I’ve almost got it right.”

I finally got it right!!”

“Even the birds hated this song!!”
