Jo - Lead Singer & Song Writer

Joanne Hardin grew up in a musical family in the San Antonio area, spending just about every weekend listening and singing along with her Dad, Aunts, and Uncles. Her passion for music has been deep her entire life and flows through the sheets of her original songs. 

"Jo", as she chooses to be called, began her musical career singing Christian music and hymns for the masses. Eventually, this led her to begin singing with a Nashville recording band as well as many local and national recording artists. Joanne has sung all genres of music but none is held more dear to her than Rock! She is very excited to be a part of C-ROCK!

Nelson - Drums, Vocals, & Business Manager


Nelson started playing drums at the age of eight.  He was trained in the traditional rudimentary drumming techniques which can be heard in his drumming style today.  He played in a number of bands until he joined the Army in the early 70's.  Once he returned from his deployment overseas, he picked up the sticks and has not missed a beat since (pun intended).  Nelson has a passion to play and perform and he enjoys the friendship and talents of everyone in the C-ROCK band

Joey - Lead Guitar & Vocals

Joey was introduced to musical instruments at the age of 10.  He asked his parents for a drum set, but they opted to get him a guitar because it was the option that might make the least amount of noise.  That guitar was the best thing that could have happened to Joey.

What followed was a growing obsession/appreciation for all things rock n’ roll.  By the time Joey completed High School he had already been in several bands and spent most of his non-academic hours learning, writing, and recording music.

After high school,  Joey studied composition for film at UCLA to nurture his desire to make music for films.  Joey was lucky enough to score a couple of independent films, but his real passion was in performing live and on stage. Being born and raised in Los Angeles, California it wasn’t hard to find the people and the venues to make this a reality.

Shortly after finishing at UCLA, Joey found success in the music business; over the course of a few years, he toured and recorded albums with some well-known artists. His experience with writing, recording, and touring was growing consistently over the years and his original music can still be heard across all the online platforms such as iTunes and Spotify.

A man of many talents, Joey started a successful photography business and raised a beautiful family.  It was only when he was lucky enough to find the C-ROCK crew did he realize it was time to start making awesome music again.

C-ROCK is happy and proud to have such a talent as Joey to be a part of the C-ROCK family!
