Exclusive Download: Jon Hardy & the Public Cover Randy Newman

In 2007, Saint Louis rock and near-soul band Jon Hardy & the Public released an album that topped a number of critics’ Best of lists: Working In Love. Now they’ve cut (and self-produced and recorded) an EP of songs by Randy Newman, and are offering it up as an exclusive, free download at KDHX.org and the A to Z Blog.

The lineup features Jon Hardy (guitar & vocals), Johnny Kidd (keys), Glenn LaBarre (guitar), Shae Moseley (percussion), Gred Shadwick (bass), Manoj Mohan (tenor sax) and Michelle Rae (baritone sax).
