Hard Redemption is a Nashville-based country band fronted by award-winning American hit songwriter Michael Anderson and his wife, Canadian songwriter Soraiya Campbell

Currently they are performing country and gospel music with guitarist Armand Anderson and fiddler John Cisco, playing gorgeous tunes with three-part harmonies such as "Closer to God", "Shiloh" and "Good Morning Jesus".   

In 2019 and 2020 Michael and Soraiya performed extensively with veteran Nashville musicians Kirk Eberhard (bass) and Mike Bailey (drums), joined by Mark Huhta and later Mike Greenberg on pedal steel. In October 2020 they released a debut album of original country rock songs, which you can purchase here. The album includes Michael's hit song "Maybe It Was Memphis" (which was cut by Pam Tillis in the 90s and is considered a country classic).

From 2016-2019 Hard Redemption was known as The Tender Mercies and played all over Los Angeles at beloved venues (many now closed), as well as at churches, fundraisers and private events. Band members included drummer Jim Doyle and bassist Greg Boaz.

More about Michael Anderson:

Michael played with pop icon Phil Seymour, had a successful solo career with hits like "Sound Alarm" and "God's Been Good To Me", and wrote for Pam Tillis ("Maybe It Was Memphis"), John Fogerty ("No Love In You") and many others in rock, country, and CCM.
