John Hiatt Sydney Concert March 27, 2008

The comparisons between John Hiatt and Springsteen are obvious, both singing straight from Heartland USA, both blending rock and roll with Americana.

John Hiatt, however, is a lesser known artist but no lesser a song writer or entertainer.

Despite claiming his first record contract in 1973 at the age of 21 he only came to mainstream success in 1987 with the album, Bring the Family.

Ry Cooder backed him on this album which produced an enduring hit ‘Have a Little Faith in Me’, covered by Joe Cocker, Bob Jovi, Jewel and many more. His songs have also been covered by Dylan, Buddy Guy and Bruce.

John will be in Sydney on March 27, 2008, one of the East Coast Bluesfest Sideshows

Check him out at the Enmore Theatre, Ticketek
