From Indianapolis, Indiana, John Hiatt started his music career in a garage band and playing at bars in the late 60s. After moving to Nashville, Hiatt landed a job as a songwriter where he worked for several years before moving to Los Angeles where he began opening for Folk musicians including Leo Kottke. Many of Hiatt’s songs were covered successfully by everyone from Bonnie Raitt, Ronnie Milsap, and Dr. Feelgood to Iggy Pop, Three Dog Night, and The Neville Brothers.
Hiatt had his breakthrough as an artist in 1987, with the release of “Bring The Family”. Hiatt’s newest album “The Eclipse Sessions” is musically rooted in acoustic Blues, accentuated by Hiatt’s soulful and gritty voice, which mirrors the gravity of his reflective lyrics.
