John Wesley HardingJohn Wesley Harding is a fol/pop singer-songwriter who has called his style of music "folk noir" and "gangsta folk".
His middle name comes from John Wesley who preached one of his last sermons in the town where he was born.
His education included: St.Andrews, Pangbourne, Berkshire; Milbourne Lodge, Claygate, Surrey; The King's School, Canterbury, Kent; Jesus College, Cambridge. He left Cambridge before earning his Ph.d. in Humanities.
He has been dogged by comparisons to Elvis Costello which probably was fueled, in part, by two members of his early band (Pete and Bruce Thomas) having been members of The Attractions.
