about

Born in London to an Anglo-Polish family, Ania sings her stories to the soul with a rich, all-woman hug of a voice. There is an unabashed Englishness to Hardy’s vocals that recalls Maddy Prior, while the timbre of her voice is Allison Krauss meets Alison Moyet. A born communicator, Ania’s empathic, down-home secular spirituals capture the imagination, tug on the heart-strings and trip off the tongue – simple, folksy, bluesy pastiches, pure, earthy and unadorned. The richness of her vocal tone is unique and distinctive, delivering her catchy melodies and beautifully crafted songs with elegance and grace.

Track Name: My Beloved
My Beloved – Ania Hardy

I can feel my Beloved come my way
I can feel his presence
I can feel it so
Oh Lord, what a joy to know
My Beloved is on his way

Joy Joy! Light in my heart
Joy Joy! It finally fits the part
Oh lover, come to me
Let’s settle down and make sweet love
Let’s settle down and make sweet…
Oh love...

With speed I know I can go alone
But far I know
I will go with you
Oh Lord, what a joy to know
My Beloved is on his way

Joy Joy! Light in my heart
Joy Joy! It finally fits the part
Oh lover, come to me
Let’s settle down and make sweet love
Let’s settle down and make sweet…
Oh love...

Jump in with me
We’ll never know unless we go
I can take the heat
I can feel the beat
Are you gonna burn… with me?

I’ll dance to the rhythm of your beat
When your eyes shine
Our two hearts meet
Oh Lord, what a joy to know
My Beloved is on his way

Joy Joy! Light in my heart
Joy Joy! It finally fits the part
Oh lover, come to me
Let’s settle down and make sweet love
Let’s settle down and make sweet…

Joy Joy! Light in my heart
Joy Joy! It finally fits the part
Oh lover, come to me
Let’s settle down and make sweet love
Let’s settle down and make sweet love
Let’s settle down and make sweet love…
Track Name: Call My Name
When You Call My Name – Ania Hardy

When you call my name
When you call my name
It’s the sweetest sound
To me, to me

When you lay me down
When you lay me down
It gives the sweetest thrill
To me, to me

So I’ll hold out my hand
Knowing that you will stand
By me as we walk
And you call my name

When you call my name
When you call my name
It’s the sweetest sound
When you call my name

When you lay me down
When you lay me down
It gives the sweetest thrill
To me, to me

So I’ll hold out my hand
Knowing that you will stand
By me as we walk
And you call my name

When you call my name
When you call my name
It’s the sweetest sound
When you call my name

When you call my name
When you call my name
It’s the sweetest sound
When you call my name
Track Name: No One Knows
No One Knows – Ania Hardy

No one knows
No one knows
That her aching heart
She never shows
She never shows

When she falls
When she falls
You can’t hear the sound
Of her calls
Of her calls

For she’ll wake up
And hide her tender soul
Put on a face
That everyone knows
But I know, I know…..

It’s ok to cry
Show your softer side
For we can only heal
On the other side

She can hide
She can hide
But some peace of mine
She’ll never find
She’ll never find

For she’ll wake up
And hide her tender soul
Put on a face
That everyone knows
But I know
I know…..

It’s ok to cry
Show your sweeter side
For there’s no need to hide
It’s all there in your eyes
It’s ok to cry
Show your softer side
For we can only heal
On the other side

No one knows, no one knows…
That her aching heart
She never shows
She never shows…
Track Name: Heavy Load
Heavy Load – Ania Hardy

Mamma’s gone down to the riverside
To wash the work from her clothes
She needs a clean hand
Before the baby shows
‘Cos Mamma’s got a heavy load

Mamma’s gone down to the riverside
To wash the dirt between her toes
She needs a clean sole
Before the baby grows
‘Cos Mamma’s got a heavy load

Maybe one day she’ll reap what she sows
But for now Mamma just wants to know
How to raise her sweet child
‘Cos God only knows
Mamma’s got a heavy load
Oh Mamma’s got a heavy load
Yeah Mamma’s got a heavy load

Mamma’s gone down to the riverside
To wash the hurt from her woes
She needs a clean heart
Before the baby knows
‘Cos Mamma’s got a heavy load

Maybe one day she’ll reap what she sows
But for now Mamma just wants to know
How to raise her sweet child
‘Cos God only knows
Mamma’s got a heavy load
Oh Mamma’s got a heavy load
Yeah Mamma’s got a heavy load
