About Del Hartley

Del Hartley’s unique sound transcends the ordinary as he refuses to impose limitations on his style. A self-described modern-day renaissance man, the Ottawa-born singer combines elements of modern R&B with a touch of ‘90s soul. Del’s lyrics are a reflection of his true experiences, bringing a captivating and honest sound with the falsetto of Al Green, and the deep baritone of Teddy Pendergrass. To learn first, from mentors, producers, managers, and artists alike, he explores every connection – a diligent student of both life and art.
