With a sound that is uniquely his own, J. Harden is the original “King of Hood and Blues.”As one of the hardest working independents out of Atlanta, he is more than your typical artist. Blessed with a grinding spirit, the ability to showcase his pure talent effectively, and his own genre that he refers to as Hood and Blues, he is more than artist to watch. He’s someone to get familiar with.

Often imitated, never duplicated. I notice some local Cleveland based agencies now copying our website, ideas, and all around attitude when it comes to the music scene. Don't be fooled by these imitators. They will scam you of monthly fees, book you few shows, then drop you after making promises of putting you in front of a record label. Every single one of StarMusicMedia's artists have been with us since day one and are already proven in the industry. Don't be duped or fooled into contracts with a company that states it has people with experience, when in general they have zero. Stay ahead of the game by doing research and understanding what it takes to be an agency in the industry.
Never be afraid to ask questions about the company in general, especially questions about any manager or booking agent you are placed with. You'll find that 98% of the time they either have no experience, or there experience is out-dated.
