Webzine review from Power of Pop Webzine
Reviewer: Kevin M Mathews, March 9, 2004
Old Dog, New Tricks (Mad Monk) Mister Hardy has become a regular correspondent with your humble writer of late and it’s been fun just chewing the e-fat now and then. Hardy, the singer-songwriter-drummer, is also someone you’d gladly invite into your music-loving heart with his unassuming, subtle but accomplished easy rock styling. This three-track EP is a treat right from the moment the sanguine vibe of "Bourbon Street" hits you between the eyes. Reminiscent of the finer material of Mark Knopfler and Gerry Rafferty, this mid-tempo paean to the French Quarter, is simple to enjoy. The country-folk musing of "She’s the One" where Hardy channels the late great Roy Orbison and is a pleasant piece of balladry and the upbeat "The Drift," with its Todd Rundrenesque keyboard changes, is a muscular soul-rocker that takes hold fairly quickly and never lets go. Good stuff, all round. B+
"This song was incredible! The overall performance was great. The lead vocals were also great. I wish I could sing like that. The drums had a great beat. It was an honor to listen to this great song".

Phillip Hardy plays contemplative, adult alternative rock music. His style incorporates jazz, blues, Latin and Americana, crossing conventional boundaries ranging from Santana/Sting flavored tunes to Peter Murphy and Roxy Music sounding alternative power pop. The year 2004 has been a great year for his musical endeavors. Since releasing his new Album, Old Dog, New Tricks, the response has been remarkable.
Reviewer: Kevin Mathews of Fufkin Magazine says:
Phillip Hardy Old Dog, New Tricks (Self-released) "this is an expanded version of a 3-track EP, which Hardy released a little earlier in the year. The inclusion of songs like the lively "Youth," the robust "Western World" and the exuberant "Season of Faith" which together with the sanguine vibe of "Bourbon Street," the country-folk musing of "She’s the One" and the upbeat "The Drift" make for a value-for-money acquisition."
Reviewer: Colin Lynch of Scout’s Digest Magazine says:
“Let your good ears stand to attention to admire accomplished vocals and lyrics that share the same bed as an astonishing ’big sixties’ sound production! That basically sums up Phillip E Hardy’s Old Dog, New Tricks, an album that swings between subtle pop/rock and Latino genres and adult oriented satirical audiophilia”. Mr. Hardy’s vocal style that is somewhat reminiscent of Gene Pitney, Roy Orbison, PJ Proby, Tom Jones, Bryan Ferry, and Chris Issak, all coming out of one mouth!"
His Americana ballad, She’s the One (STO) has been number one on the at Soundclick, Besonic and on the New Artist Radio top forty show, where the show’s host Theda Messick called his singing “phenomenal”.
