A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Whether touring as a ‘Duo’ or with his ‘Acoustic Group’ or his ‘Large Band’, Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music.
John Hiatt has risen to prominence by converting his personal tragedies into a catalog of recordings for more than four decades. Since the release of his 1974 debut, “Hangin’ Around the Observatory,” rarely has more than a year or two passed without a new Hiatt collection hitting the shelves. Hiatt’s raspy, blues-based singing has been compared with that of Bruce Springsteen, however, Hiatt’s skill as a lyricist is the thread that ties his music together.
