LILLY HIATT’S TRINITY LANE OUT NOW VIA NEW WEST RECORDS

PRODUCED BY MICHAEL TRENT OF SHOVELS & ROPE

GAINS PRAISE FROM NPR MUSIC, ASSOCIATED PRESS, ROLLING STONE, PASTE MAGAZINE, MOTHER JONES, & MORE

HIATT SOON TO EMBARK ON EXTENSIVE NORTH AMERICAN TOURS WITH BLITZEN TRAPPER & DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS

Lilly Hiatt’s Trinity Lane is out now via New West Records. The 12-song set was produced by Michael Trent of Shovels & Rope and engineered by Andy Dixon at Trent’s Studio Bees in Johns Island, SC. In addition to her backing band, Trent is featured as a musician throughout, and is joined by his wife and Shovels & Rope partner Cary Ann Hearst for backing vocals on “Everything I Had.” Trinity Lane released August 27, 2017 to widespread critical acclaim with NPR Music calling it “courageous and affecting,” and Rolling Stone Country adding, “...the most cohesive and declarative statement of the young songwriter’s career.” Additionally, Mother Jones comments, “While the sound of Trinity Lane encompasses everything from brooding garage rockers to jangly country-tinged laments to sentimental ballads, Hiatt’s commanding presence and eloquent songs tie everything together.” The Associated Press deems Hiatt “a confessional songwriter who rocks out with a twang," while PopMatters raves, "You’d have to be out of your skull not to appreciate her talents.” Hiatt recently wrapped up a successful U.S. headlining tour, which included multiple celebrated performances at Nashville’s AmericanaFest, before joining the Old 97’s on the road earlier this month. The Line Of Best Fit praises, “With a tremendous amount of swagger, [Hiatt] wields her guitar like a weapon while that distinctly southern accent of hers delivers vocal melodies that are in turns deep, bluesy, fearless and sweet.” Hiatt is soon to embark on an extensive North American support tour with Blitzen Trapper that culminates in a hometown show for the Portland, OR-based rock band on December 8. She has also just announced a support tour with Drive-By Truckers at the start of 2018, which includes shows in Kansas City, Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and more. Please see below for full tour details.

Prior to its release, NPR Music premiered the album as a “First Listen” stating, "On Trinity Lane, the third album by this fixture of Nashville's indie scene and first for New West...she's devoted to excruciatingly revealing expression, deftly manipulating the tone and perspective of her songwriting from track to track. Her treatment of pain can, remarkably, feel both considered and diaristic." Listen to the full stream HERE. Paste Magazine previously premiered the Will Morgan Holland-directed video for the album’s single "The Night David Bowie Died,” which can be seen HERE; and Rolling Stone Country also premiered the Michael Carter-directed video for the album’s title track HERE, stating, "The daughter of John Hiatt, she keeps the family tradition alive, mixing Southern influences - Americana, folk and left-of-center country - with a raw approach that’s better suited to the garage than the saloon.”

Hiatt’s love of the ‘90s alt-rock she was raised on shines through on Trinity Lane in the distressed guitars and urgent backbeats. She cites the Pixies, Breeders, Dinosaur Jr., and her favorite, Pearl Jam as influences, but there is also something distinctly Americana lurking in the songs. After moving out of an ex’s house, Hiatt settled into a new apartment off of Trinity Lane in her East Nashville neighborhood and went on tour with friend John Moreland to the West Coast and back. The intensely personal, autobiographical album was written largely upon her return, in isolation, facing the issues she escaped while on the road. Every time she wanted a man, she picked up her guitar. Every time she wanted a drink, she picked up her guitar. Hiatt says, "Love will take you to the darkest places but also the most honest places if you let it. Learning how to love myself is something I’ve always been lousy with, and I spent some time on that. I thought about my sobriety, what that means to me, the struggles I’d had throughout the years, since I was a 27-year-old and hung up my toxic drinking habit. I thought about my mother, who took her own life when I was a baby, not far from my age at 30 years old, and I related to her more than ever. As you can see, there was plenty of time spent on my own. I didn’t talk to that many folks, albeit a few close friends, and leaned into my family. I stayed away from men, and danced alone in the evenings, looking out my window observing my humble and lively neighborhood. I found power in being by myself. I found peace in the people I was surrounded with - we didn’t really know one another, but we smiled when passed on the street. One time I almost rear-ended an older woman in her car backing out of my driveway and I said, ‘Oh man, I’m just not used to any cars coming around this bend. She replied, ‘This is our little hideout, baby,’ And it really was." She continues, "After a while, I had all these songs to play, and wanted to share them. I wanted to get out of town to get some distance from everything, so after an ongoing conversation with Michael Trent, I took my band to Johns Island, SC and we holed up for a few weeks. I poured my heart out, and trusted them with it, and these guys gave it right back. I think we all understood what it’s like to question home, intention, demons, love...I think most people understand that."
