Hadar first pursued fashion before music and continues to express his creativity through his wardrobe.

“Well Dressed for the Art Show,” Hadar’s sophomore album, explores lust and love over funky beats.
“It’s an album about art; the title just means I’m prepared to present my art to you, the listener,” he says. “It’s like 13 different outfits and styles. Pretty eclectic—soul, hip-hop, rock, jambalaya, electronic, progressive and edgy.”
