Have A Little Faith In Me
Covers of Have a Little Faith in Me by John Hiatt on WhoSampled.and and for you
One of the finest songwriters of his generation, John Hiatt was celebrated by critics and discriminating music fans long before a larger audience discovered his work as a recording artist. It became Hiatt's first album to make a notable impression the charts, and several of the songs on the record became hits for other artists, including Raitt and Milsap. Following its success, Hiatt became a reliable hit songwriter for other artists, and he developed a strong cult following that continued to gain strength into the mid-'90s. While he was growing up in his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana, Hiatt played in a number of garage bands. Initially, he was inspired by the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan, and the music of those two artists would echo strongly throughout his work.
At dinner with friends on Sunday, we started talking about the upcoming week in music and I started talking enthusiastically about John Hiatt's gig Friday night at the Aladdin Theater in Portland. Hiatt has always resonated with me, for a variety of reasons. First off, he is a masterful storyteller in his writing. Conveying emotion and storylines in song is much harder than many think it is, as any songwriter will tell you. Hiatt is also an incredible guitar player and can come at you with anything from straight up rock, to blues, to country-laced ballads. Throw in his gritty, almost gruff, vocals and you pretty much have a recipe for success. For Hiatt, though, achieving success took quite a bit of time.

The Lyrics? Pretty Familiar. The Performer? Less So.

The lyrics are true, pure and raw and you can really tell that he feels every word he sings in this stunning live performance. Hiatt attributes the technical problems with the original recording as a sign that the song was not meant to be heard that way and he eventually released the song much more simply with a piano accompaniment. -
