“…one of rock’s most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years,” – The Los Angeles Times 

JOHN HIATT
As the Los Angeles Times once wrote, “(Hiatt) writes the funniest sad songs – and the saddest funny songs – of just about anybody alive.” He earned a Grammy nomination for his album Crossing Muddy Waters, and B.B. King and Eric Clapton shared a Grammy for their album Riding With The King, the title track from which was a Hiatt composition. In 2007, John Hiatt was honored with his own star on Nashville’s Walk of Fame and his legacy was even further cemented with a pair of accolades in the fall of 2008: the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting in September, and his October induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. 

 

With seven solo albums already under his belt, Hiatt’s A&M debut, Bring The Family (1987), was his breakthrough. His rootsy, rock-country-blues fusion – performed with guitarist Ry Cooder, bassist Nick Lowe, and drummer Jim Keltner – was Hiatt’s first charted effort, and he was subsequently named Best Male Vocalist in Rolling Stone’s annual Critics Poll. Bonnie Raitt would later cover the album’s “Thing Called Love” on her multiplatinum smash, Nick Of Time, and fan favorites “Memphis In The Meantime” and “Have A Little Faith In Me” have been covered by artists from Joe Cocker and Delbert McClinton to Jewel.
