John Hartley has one of those deep yet soft and easy voices that I can listen to time and again. Hailing right here in my own home state of Ohio, I had to find out about him on the net, but oh, what a find.

John has been playing the guitar since he was ten years old and won a sixth grade talent show with the Country song "Buffalo Gals".
It was just in the last two years that he decided to start a Recording career in Country Music.

He recorded his first release for radio in October,1997 with Sonic Records. The song titled, "Look at me Girl" was released in January 1998 and remained on the charts for nine months. This resulted in John receiving the Trailblazer award in Nashville TN. from Airplay International in September 1998. He also received two nominations from Nashville Tracker for that single.

John's second release for radio in December, 1998 was "Walk Slow" with Cabin Creek Records. Both of these songs along with 8 more tracks compile John Hartley's album entitled, "Pure Love".

While listening to this album, I not only appreciated the wonderful songs John chose to sing, which fit him well, but his smooth easy delivery of a song without feeling the need to drown it with the background music. "The Most Beautiful Rose", a most beautiful love song, is a great example of this. This standard remains as you move on to the 2-steppin', "Where Did You Learn to Love Like That".

All told, "Pure Love" is purely a very good country album with a mixture of traditional and modern country....but ALL country, ALL the way.
