It’s coming to ya this Tuesday on Diana Linn’s Tasty Brew…. the songs of the master storyteller John Hiatt from artists as diverse as Maria Muldaur to New Grass Revival. Los Angeles Times calls Hiatt “…one of rock’s most astute singer-songwriters of the last 40 years.” Hiatt, a master lyricist and satirical storyteller, is out touring in support of his new release “Terms of My Surrender” which weaves hidden plot twists into fictional tales ranging in topics including redemption, relationships, growing older and surrendering. Hiatt’s soulful, gritty voice mirrors the gravity of his reflective lyrics.
Hiatt’s songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt (“Thing Called Love”), Emmylou Harris, Iggy Pop, Rosanne Cash (#1 country hit, “The Way We Make A Broken Heart”), the Jeff Healey Band (“Angel Eyes”), and even the cartoon bear band of Disney’s film, The Country Bears. He earned a Grammy nomination for Crossing Muddy Waters, while 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. Hiatt has received his own star on Nashville’s Walk of Fame, the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting, has been inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and was saluted at the Indiana Governor’s Arts Awards. John Hiatt along with Robert Cray is appearing this Tuesday night, June 24, at Knuckleheads.
Also included in this edition of The Tasty Brew are artists that will be appearing in Kansas City this week – the kings of Texican music Los Lonely Boys, bluegrass darling Nora Jane Struthers, and Kansas City’s own Jesse Harris who has a solo CD release party this week for “As I Am.”
Oh and P.S. brand NEW and stunningly beautiful music from Ray Price’s last recording sessions before his passing earlier this year. So much music…so little time.PLAYLIST
