Dawn Hiatt has been featured at the Philadelphia Folk Festival and on the prestigious Bluebird Stage on the Country Throwdown Tour (VA). Her many festival appearances include the Hudson Valley Songfest and Montauk (both NY); Midpoint and Paper City (OH); Black Potatoe (NJ); and the Kimmel Center Summer Solstice and Bethlehem MusikFest (PA). She has opened for top acts Joan Baez (Kimmel Center), Cory Chisel (Eagleview) and 10,000 Maniacs (Sellersville), while consistently selling out the region’s top listening rooms as a headliner. She recently celebrated the release of her second full-length album, Goodnight Boots. Her music uniquely marries classic Nashville influences directly to chamber pop, with spikes of alt-country, folk-rock and Tin Pan Alley in between. Her classic country tunes are marked by memorable hooks and harmonies, Patsy Cline with a shot of Chet Atkins thrown in, yet the production, rather than being reverential, often suggests Jon Brion’s work with Aimee Mann or Fiona Apple. Her alt-country tunes recall Whiskeytown, while its ebb and tide of grit and kitsch suggest a close kinship with Neko Case and Andrew Bird.
