Hiatt's music is roots-based, influenced by her musical upbringing and the music town she lives in. However, she comes into her own and shines with the fresh gloss she adds to her music. You hear it in different ways, like through the catchy keyboards and double drumbeat of today's song.
You'll go deeper with an excerpt from and a link to a short note Hiatt wrote to accompany the record on Bandcamp.

Last year was tough. That’s an understatement for certain. Tears were shed, lives were lost, and lonely was a way of life. I have always felt lonely, but never gone to the depths of solitude that I had in 2020. The irony of that is, I was not alone at all in that space. Everyone had lost something, and we all were trying to rebuild our lives as we knew them.

I also was finally catching up with myself, and understanding I was reeling from some of my missteps. Forgiveness can occur through written words for me, so it was quite soothing to have my guitars and a melody. Depression was a big part of fall and winter. I forgot how down I could feel. But I also felt hope in that light came from a memory of a past adventure or a stranger’s smile while walking down the street. Little things lifted my spirits.
