IMPACTING LIVES WHEREVER WE Go...
Locally-known yet nationally-awarded Texas singer-songwriter Joseph Hobdy (aka THE 413 EFFECT) is on a mission in 2022 to impact the community and abroad through his upbeat style of piano-based Soulful Rock, with a message of hope that resonates with the hearts of all who listen. A self-taught pianist, Hobdy has been writing music and leading others in worship for over 15 years. Formed in 2003, Hobdy felt a call to action from God to be a light in the midst of the darkness and to encourage others who feel unloved and unaccepted by others.
Since 2009, THE 413 EFFECT has performed on the same stages of many well-known Christian and Gospel artists (such as Britt Nicole, David Crowder* Band, and Dorothy Norwood), as well as been invited to write original music for several collegiate events. It's the , however, that is core to Hobdy's heart.
Since the worldwide pandemic of 2020, Hobdy would hone his skills at home, hosting weekly live performances via social media to encourage and uplift audiences all over the U.S. who would tune in. What makes those weekly live events on social media truly unique are when Hobdy invites his mother (road manager & pastor Star Hobdy) to join him on the broadcast to chat with the listening audience & perform alongside him.
THE 413 EFFECT has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. Whether through a public event or a live performance on social media, T4E is here to stay, and brings a powerful message along the way...
"We are not promised tomorrow, so what EFFECT will you leave behind today?"
