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

“I’m a big fan of Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent and 21MC,” he says. “They all think outside the box but everything makes sense.”

Hadar cleans up well.

“[My music is like] a tall glass of Merlot,” says Hadar. “Merlot relaxes me, gets me in a cool mood, and I think that s what my music does.”

“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.”
