Tim Hardin, Reason to Believe

James Timothy Hardin (December 23, 1941 – December 29, 1980) was an American folk and blues musician and composer. As well releasing his own material, several of his songs, including “If I Were a Carpenter”, became hits for other artists.

Hardin grew up in Oregon and joined the Marine Corps. He started his music career in Greenwich Village which led to recording several albums in the mid to late 1960s, and a performance at the Woodstock Festival. Hardin struggled with drug abuse throughout most of his adult life, and live performances were sometimes erratic. He was planning a comeback when he died in late 1980 from a heroin overdose.

A singer songwriter who wrote some very good songs, I listened to his music in the 70’s and thought he was so good. It was sad that he died of drugs.

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
