Bruce Vilanch Endorses Singer Audra Hardt
Bruce Vilanch supports rising rock singer Audra Hardt and telling a few jokes along the way.
Hollywood, CA, August 25, 2007 –(PR.com)– Bruce Vilanch, comedian, actor, and writer best known for his contributions as a leading writer for the Oscars, Emmys and Tony Awards, is endorsing rising rock singer Audra Hardt. At The Key Club on September 14th at 8:00 pm Vilanch will launch Hardtâ€™s set with his unique brand of comedy.
Vilanch and Hardt share a value system that is rare in this day and age. Both entertainers lead a â€œstraight edgeâ€ or drug and alcohol free lifestyle. In an industry polluted with drug and alcohol abuse, Vilanch and Hardtâ€™s positive example is an inspirational quality among entertainers. As a rock singer, Hardt is a refreshing representative of a musical genre that has long been associated with drugs and alcohol.
“The temptation is present, but I have lived that lie before. The promise of a better anything has never come to fruition from a chemical altered state of mind. I also feel as a performer I have a responsibility to show a new way of power a new definition of cool, a way of rocking out that we adults and adolescents can agree on.” states Hardt.
Vilanch will not be alone in his show of support for rocker Audra Hardt. Keith David is among the guest list of celebrities that will be in attendance for the performance. Mayor John Duran of West Hollywood is endorsing Hardt at The Mint September 29th. With Hardtâ€™s music crossing generational bridges, her positive example, and the sheer power of her voice it is no surprise she has such a strong show of support from these Hollywood insiders.
The September 14th performance at the Key Club falls on the release date of Audra Hardtâ€™s EP â€œSuperficial Superstarâ€. The independent label, King of Hardt Records (www.kingofhardtrecords.com.), will release the EP featuring the singles â€œWatch Meâ€ and the power ballad â€œNow and Thenâ€ written for the independent film Beautiful Loser. The EP will be available through www.cdbaby.com and at www.AudraHardt.com. Currently several of Audraâ€™s tracks can be purchased through iTunes.
