BIO:

The Eclipse Sessions, John Hiatt’s newest album, offers up his strongest set of songs in years. Long celebrated as a skilled storyteller and keen observer of life’s twists and turns, Hiatt can get at the heart of a knotty emotion or a moment in time with just a sharp, incisive lyric or witty turn of phrase. The 11 tracks presented in The Eclipse Sessions, from the breezy opener “Cry To Me,” to the stark “Nothing In My Heart,” the lost-love lamentation “Aces Up Your Sleeve” to the rollicking “Poor Imitation Of God,” demonstrate that the singer-songwriter, now 66, is only getting better with age, his guitar playing more rugged and rootsy, his words wiser and more wry.

Hiatt goes all in with The Eclipse Sessions. There’s a grit to these songs—a craggy, perfectly-imperfect quality that colors every aspect of the performances, right down to Hiatt’s vocals, which are quite possibly his most raw and expressive to date. “They ain’t pretty, that’s for sure,” he says about the creaks and cracks that punctuate his phrases in songs like “Poor Imitation Of God” and “One Stiff Breeze.” “But I don’t mind a bit. All the catches and the glitches and the gruffness, that sounds right to me. That sounds like who I am.” The Eclipse Sessions is the sound of an artist not only living in but also capturing the moment.

PRAISE FOR THE ECLIPSE SESSIONS:

“Hiatt still writes, as evidenced by his latest release, The Eclipse Sessions, a collection of timeless tunes that show his unassuming mastery.”  The New York Times

“…an artist on par with American greats such as Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Paul Simon and Bruce Springsteen.” Guitar Player Magazine

“There are fetching melodies and rhythmic wrinkles characteristic of Hiatt’s best work.” The Associated Press

“At its core, The Eclipse Sessions shows that Hiatt remains a songwriter worth listening to: He’s a skillful lyricist with a singular voice.” Paste Magazine

“The Eclipse Sessions is a solid, if not exceptional, addition to Hiatt’s 40-plus-year catalog.” Relix Magazine

“Hiatt says that his latest, The Eclipse Sessions, is connected to that album (Bring The Family) as well as to 2000’s Crossing Muddy Waters, due to the fact that he didn’t know where he was headed when he started them. But his lack of direction is a blessing to the rest of us, culminating in a project that sounds as good as anything he’s done in years.” No Depression

“Listen to Hiatt’s road-weary voice, his sturdy guitar, and the stripped-down accompaniment; it seems he’s got plenty left. This is as expressive as he’s ever sounded.” Glide Magazine

“On these 11 originals, once again Hiatt proves he’s still got plenty of reason to live, and plenty left to share with the rest of us as well.” No Depression
