How To Book JOHN HIATT For Your Event!
may be available for your next special event!
prince of the pen, John Hiatt's songwriting abilities often
overshadow his singing/playing talents; his songs have been successfully
covered by a range of artists like
Milsap, Iggy Pop,
Brothers, Three Dog Night,
Bogguss, Bonnie Raitt and many others.
1974 marked the start of Hiatt's solo career, and the next decade showed
his range of musical experimentation with a mixture of rock and roll
styles and new wave pop. He finally settled on a rootsy fusion of rock,
country, blues and folk with his successful 1987 album "Bring
the Family." Hiatt's song highlights include "Have a Little
Faith in Me," "Thing Called Love" and "Slow Turning."
John Hiatt prefers to wing it. Informal,
off-the-cuff recording sessions have always brought out the best in him.
It happened with "Bring
the Family," the album that made him famous.
1987, a 15-year music-biz survivor with little to show for it brought
three friends into a Los Angeles studio. In a mere four days, the hungry
veteran John Hiatt and his friends (guitarist
Ry Cooder, drummer
Jim Keltner and bassist Nick Lowe) made "Bring
the Family," Hiatt's ode to his newfound domestic happiness.
Rolling Stone called it "one of the most sublime and deeply felt
albums of the Eighties." In 1988 came the equally fine "Slow
Turning," followed by a brace of albums that established Hiatt
as one of the essential singer-songwriters of the past 20 years.
On stage, John Hiatt is a soul on fire. His
vocals are dynamic with a gritty,
bluesy voice that resonates with just the right amount of Midwestern
"twang." As a
songwriter, he is universally admired, a legend. Scores of artists have
recorded his songs, from Bob Dylan to
Willie Nelson to
B.B. King and
Eric Clapton, the title song of whose million-selling
with the King," is a Hiatt tune.
John Hiatt makes no
distinction between his performing and songwriting selves. "I write
'em and I play 'em – it all goes together. If I didn't do both, I'd
shrivel up and die."
When Hiatt isn't touring, he follows "absolutely
no routine" beyond a passionate pursuit of oval-track auto racing
(none of his music awards are on display at the house; all of his racing
trophies are). He recently tested himself in another non-musical
capacity, winning kudos as host/interviewer for the acclaimed TV show
"Sessions at West 54th." Hiatt spent spring and summer 2000 on
a reunion tour with his great late-Eighties band, The Goners.
"A dozen years from now, I'll still be out there.
As long as I'm physically able. There's no replacement for that
hour-and-a-half during which I'm allowed to get up there and get outside
of myself, get out of the trap of my psyche, my worries, my insanity.
Being able to transcend that for ninety minutes is just a wonderful thing."
