Hardworker is a rock band from Durham, North Carolina. The band took its present shape in 2015 when Sus Long and Mike Conner traded in their acoustic folk duo for something louder with guitarist Danny Nowell and vocalist Alex Treyz.
Songwriter Sus Long grew up in a home steeped in the American songbook and a Bay-area high-school steeped in the Hives. She writes sad songs full of jokes and party songs about the patriarchy, drawing on influences as diverse as Billie Holiday and Jason Isbell. The rest of the sound comes together somewhere between Mike’s dense grooves and banjo compositions, Danny’s love of overdrive, and Alex’s harmonic daredevilry.
Hardworker's debut album Go Alone was produced by Alex Bingham and engineered by Mitch Easter at the Fidelitorium in Kernersville, North Carolina. It will be released on July 21, 2017.
