LIVE! Music: Lilly Hiatt Band plays Jan. 6 at WAC

Hailing from the musical riches of East Nashville, the Lilly Hiatt Band will perform songs from her newest album “Lately” starting at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 6, as part of Walton Arts Center’s West Street Live series. Crossing into multiple genres including country, rock and folk, Hiatt is redefining singer-songwriter music with her emotional honesty and unique musical style.

Hiatt walks the line between a rough, rock ‘n’ roll exterior and tender, country roots. She has four albums to her name and a nomination for Americana Music Honors and Awards for best emerging artist.

In 2017, Hiatt released “Trinity Lane,” a commercial and critical breakout that helped establish her as one of the leading voices to emerge from East Nashville. The record earned Hiatt opening shows with the likes of John Prine, Margo Price, Drive-By Truckers and Hiss Golden Messenger among others and helped her secure festival slots everywhere from Pilgrimage and High Water to Luck Reunion and Wildwood Revival.

“Lately,” an album recorded through the grief, heartbreak and boredom of the pandemic, displays her ability to shift from gentle intimacy to brawny grit. It also includes contributions from friends like Amanda Shires and Aaron Lee Tasjan along with a guest appearance by her father, legendary songwriter John Hiatt.
