New Music Video and T-Shirts

Figured I'd better play a show while I'm in Denver so I snagged one at Denver's The Hi Dive. Come out and say hello, hear some of the new music and dance. Feb. 23rd, ticket information here:

Also, just before I left Colorado I teamed up with some talented young filmmakers to create this music video for "Life, Love and Pain" which was featured on MTV in 2012, take a look!

Finally, i've got some new t-shirts for sale, head on over to and snag one, it includes a free download of my first album!

Farewell To Colorado | John Hiatt

Big news, I've decided to leave Colorado.

In the 7 months since the release of "oh oh", my music career has grown exponentially. Between concerts, film/tv and album sales, I'm now able to shift my focus entirely to touring and recording full time. Over the coming winter I'll start working a new album to be released on sonaBLAST records sometime next year, and am moving to Louisville Kentucky to work and tour out of sonaBLAST's HQ.

I've truly loved the time I spent in Colorado and feel so fortunate to have gotten to make music and learn from so many wonderful, creative people. I want to express my deepest thanks to everyone who has supported me, whether by coming to a show, donating to my kickstarter, taking some lessons or just sharing some insightful conversation.

Thank You.

I will be back for many colorado shows in the future, but there are two big chances to see me play before I leave at the end of October:

Thursday August 30th I have the very large honor of opening for the legend, John Hiatt at Chautauqua auditorium in Boulder.

Saturday October 13th I'll be having my official farewell show at the Hi-Dive in Denver. Click HERE for ticket information.

I hope you can join me for my sendoff show October 13th so I can thank you in person. Stay in touch, KJ.

Somebody That I Used To Know - Elliott Smith

I was invited to play at a tribute concert and film premiere for Elliott Smith a few weeks back. Elliott was a huge inspiration to me, and this song in particular. Check out the film "Searching For Elliott Smith". I was moved to record my solo banjo/voice rendition and film a music video, check it out below.

Thanks to Scott McCormick and Josh Mackey(House in Motion) for their work on this video.
