John Hiatt Background
Hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana, John Hiatt gigged with
several garage bands. He was first influenced by Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones.
At the age of 18, Hiatt relocated
to Nashville where he scored a job as a songwriter for Tree Publishing. Over the next several years, Hiatt wrote and played
area hotels and clubs. In just a few years, his tunes were being recorded by artists like Three Dog Night, Tracy Nelson and
Hiatt embarked on a solo career back in 1974. Throughout that era, he experimented with multiple styles,
from new wave pop to good ol' fashioned rock and roll. He finally settled on a blend of country, blues, rootsy folk and rock
and roll. His first album, Hangin' Around the Observatory, arrived in late 1974, followed by Overcoats.
Hiatt was let go by Tree Publishing. After being discouraged in Nashville, he relocated to California. By the summer of 1978,
Hiatt settled in L.A. and started making the rounds at area clubs. He served as the opening act for folk artists like Leo
Kottke. Kottke helped Hiatt hire Denny Bruce, his new manager. Bruce assisted Hiatt in inking a deal with MCA Records. His
first record with the label was Slug Line (1979). Slug Line differed from the style of Hiatt's previous records, tracing the
path of singer/songwriters such as Joe Jackson and Elvis Costello. After another album, Two Bit Monsters, failed to chart,
Hiatt was dropped by MCA.
For most of the '80s, Hiatt served as a member of Ry Cooder's backing band in addition to
touring with Cooder. When he acquired a contract with A&M Records, he prepped for the initial album by assembling some
ex-associates. Within just a few days, the group was able to come up with an album containing a raw, rootsy sound.Bring the
Family arrived in 1987. The album didn't light up the charts but it did become the first album of his to graze the charts.
Several of the songs on the album also became successful hits for other musicians like Ronnie Milsap and Bonnie Raitt.
the album's success, Hiatt became a dependable hit-making wordsmith for other musical artists, and he gained a strong cult
following that continued to boom into the next decade.
