"The Black Truth tells stories sonically.
His productions render a scene through music. Each track is a fable, a moment, a universe all to its own; The roar of a sea, the soft hum of an intergalactic starship, or the wedding reception two step of a father and daughter.
The Black Truth wields Propellerhead's Reason like a neon paintbrush, dipping it into the color/mood/theme of his own real experience and paints a vibrant composition over a funky canvas of drum and bass."
As quoted by New York based actor, musician, and music critic Esquire the Great
My name is Daniel Hardee, and I am Black Truth Music. Straight out of Oakland, California: I am a sound designer and songwriter alumnus of the Savannah College of Art and Design of Georgia. I am currently in Seoul, South Korea exploring music production.
Sonically I'm inspired by artists who channel their emotion into a world of vibration, color, and story...Teddy Riley, John Michael Talbot, E-40, Phill Collins,Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, MGMT, David Banner, Narada Michael Walden, Pat Benatar, The Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff, Timbaland, Enya, Chic, Dr. Dre, The Ohio Players, Rick Rock, Daft Punk, Polow Da Don, The Neptunes....and many, many more.
My music pushes to deliver cinematic drama in an electric-neon atmosphere, grounded by powerful bass. We all have an anthem; the closer we are to the truth, the louder it blasts. Welcome to Black Truth Music.
