Peter Skellern (14 March 1947 – 17 February 2017) was an English singer-songwriter and pianist. The use of brass bands and choral arrangements in his music, to create a nostalgic and romantic feel, became a trademark. He enjoyed two UK top twenty hits in the 1970s. In October 2016, he was ordained as a deacon and priest of the Church of England, but died only four months later.

Hard Times is the fifth album by singer, songwriter and pianist Peter Skellern (1947–2017)) released in 1975 on the Island Records label. Despite much radio airplay, "Hard Times" failed as a single and the LP slipped into decades of obscurity Hard Times.
Skellern attended Derby Grammar School (now Derby High School) and studied piano at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He later joined pop groups called 'Harlem' and 'March Hare'.
