BIOGRAPHICAL PROFILE

Juliana Hatfield

Juliana Hatfield (born July 27, 1967) is an American musician and singer-songwriter from the Boston area. She was formerly of the indie rock bands Blake Babies and Some Girls and now performs as a solo artist, and as one half of Minor Alps, alongside Matthew Caws of Nada Surf. In December 2014, Paste Magazine named her cover of the “Needle in the Hay”, a song by Elliott Smith, as No. 10 one of the “20 Best Cover Songs of 2014.”

In 2014 she reformed The Juliana Hatfield Three, announcing the new album Whatever, My Love for 2015. In late December, Stereogum named the album “one of their most anticipated albums of 2015,” and on January 4, 2015, Consequence of Sound named it “one of the 50 most anticipated albums of 2015.” The band has announced a US tour for February and March in support of the album.

She then transferred as a piano student to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, in the hope of finding a band with which to sing.

There she soon met Freda Boner and John Strohm, forming the Blake Babies with them in 1986, at the age of 19.

The band, with which she sang and played bass guitar as well as some guitar and piano, was signed to North Carolina’s Mammoth Records and received a fair amount of airplay on college radio through the early 1990s.

The group toured the United States several times, performed in Europe, and made several music videos. Hatfield eventually earned a degree in songwriting from Berklee.

The group formally disbanded in 1991 but, largely due to the persistent efforts of Freda, reunited briefly in late 1999, performing a few shows in 1999 and 2000 and embarking on one last U.S. tour in 2001.

Hatfield began her solo career following the Blake Babies’ breakup in 1991, releasing her first solo album (Hey Babe) in 1992. The album was one of the highest selling independent albums of 1992.

Her hits such as “Hey Baby” 1992, “Become What You Are” 1994 were crossover songs with success within the rock area.

With a cult following she can be decribed as singing alternative songs.

When only young she studied piano and played guitar in her school days.

She would laer form “The Blake Babies” in 1986.
