Lilly Hiatt Proves Her Point
New West Records recently announced the March 27 release of Lilly Hiatt’s Walking Proof, the follow-up to her critically successful 2017 album Trinity Lane.
A music video for brand-new track “Brightest Star” accompanied the album announcement. It allows both sides of Hiatt – the Rickenbacker-slinging jangle rocker and the astute, country-influenced songwriter – to shine on a track that encourages listeners to kick self-doubt’s ugly, ol’ butt. Its upbeat message stands in contrast to several songs off Trinity Lane, an album inspired by Hiatt’s struggles with sobriety, a breakup and her mother’s suicide.
Another album track, “Some Kind of Drug,” teams Hiatt with her famous father: fellow singer-songwriter John Hiatt. Additional special guests include fellow Americana luminaries Amanda Shires, Luke Schneider and Drivin’ N Cryin’ collaborator Aaron Lee Tasjan.
Best of all, Hiatt’s first round of tour dates in support of Walking Proof begins in Atlanta. She’s appearing April 2nd at Vinyl.
