Timeline of Juliana Hatfield
Hatfield was profiled in a number of girls’ magazines, most notably Sassy, at this time and addressed serious issues faced by young women in her songs and interviews. About this period she says: “I was never comfortable with the attention. I thought it had come too soon. I hadn’t earned it yet.” She gained notoriety in 1992 for saying that she was still a virgin in her mid-twenties in Interview magazine. In a 1994 interview for the magazine Vox, she said she was surprised by the effect ‘outing’ herself had: “I think there are a lot of people out there who don’t care about sex, but who you never hear from, so I thought I should say it. The magazine I did the interview for is full of beef-cake hunky guys and scantily-clad models, so I thought it would be really funny to say that I didn’t care about sex in a magazine that’s full of sex and beauty – but no one really got the joke.”
Since then, Hatfield has released a number of solo albums, including two albums of all cover songs, Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John (2018) and Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police (2019) and two albums of original work, Pussycat (2017) and Weird (2019).
In 2016 she formed a collaboration with Paul Westerberg under the moniker The I Don’t Cares to release the album Wild Stab. More recently, she has released an album of original work titled Weird in 2019, sandwiched between two albums of cover songs, Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John (2018) and Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police (2019).
Hatfield and Paul Westerberg formed The I Don’t Cares, releasing “Wild Stab” January 22, 2016, on Dry Wood Records.
She has performed and recorded as a solo artist and as one half of Minor Alps with Matthew Caws of Nada Surf. In December 2014, Paste named her cover of the song “Needle in the Hay” by Elliott Smith number 10 in a list 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 lead single, “If I Could,” was released in December 2014 and was premiered in Rolling Stone. That month the album was made available for pre-order on American Laundromat Records with an announced release date of February 17, 2015. The band announced they would tour the United States in support of the album throughout February, visiting cities on both coasts and in the midwest, and appearing at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City, and The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles.
In late December 2014, 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.” On January 9, 2015, Hatfield was featured at Nylon.com, which wrote that the upcoming album came off as “unforced, and with its sly lyrics and mega-hooky coffeehouse-grunge aesthetic.” The album’s second single “Ordinary Guy” premiered on Consequence of Sound on January 14, 2015.
In 2015 Juliana Hatfield and Paul Westerberg announced that they have formed a new group, called the I Don’t Cares. The released the album Wild Stab in 2016.
In December 2014, Paste Magazine named her track “Needle in the Hay,” an Elliott Smith cover, as No. 10 one of the “20 Best Cover Songs of 2014.” The review called the cover “a more upbeat, approachable take on Smith’s disparate, wrought-iron classic. But even though it now employs bass, drums, tambourine and synth, the songs stays true to the sorrowful, tension-riddled original.” Also that month, SPIN Magazine named the cover one of the “40 Best 2014 Songs by 1994 Artists ,” where it came it at No. 36. The review stated “The tempo’s a bit quicker, and she double-tracks herself for the song’s entirety. But the (tasteful) inclusion of chintzy drum programming and mellotron cleverly point to Smith’s eventual creative direction.”
In 2014, The Juliana Hatfield Three reunited two decades after it disbanded. She used PledgeMusic to raise funds for the new album, titled Whatever, My Love, the trio’s first since 1993’s Become What You Are. Hatfield said, “We haven’t totally reinvented the wheel or anything,” and that the tracks exhibit the “stuff I am sort of known for, I guess. But I am a lot more confident now than I was then with the first album. And I had more fun recording this one.” The twelve tracks for Whatever, My Love were recorded at Nuthouse Recording in Hoboken, New Jersey with Beaujour and Hatfield co-producing.
Her father claimed his family descended from the West Virginia Hatfields of the Hatfield–McCoy feud following the Civil War. Her father served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War.
As of July 2013, Juliana Hatfield has finished recording her thirteenth solo album, Wild Animals, with crowd-funding—for the third time—through PledgeMusic.
Hatfield and Matthew Caws of Nada Surf formed a band called Minor Alps whose first album, Get There, was released October 29, 2013, on Barsuk Records.
Hatfield also attended art school at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2012 in a year-long, post-baccalaureate certificate program, to study painting.
On August 28, 2012, Juliana Hatfield released a covers record titled Juliana Hatfield on her Ye Olde Records label. The album features covers of songs originally performed by The Who, Liz Phair, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Ryan Adams, I Blame Coco, and Led Zeppelin.
On April 2011, Hatfield announced her intention to work on a new album via fan-funding platform website PledgeMusic, from which she asked fans to help fund the project in exchange for personal artwork and memorabilia ranging from posters, CDs, and demos to one of Juliana’s First Act guitars (used during the recording sessions) and even locks of her hair. The project also included donations for the Save a Sato foundation to which Hatfield is a major contributor. Fan response was enthusiastic, going over 400% of the original project cost. The album was originally going to be titled Speeches Delivered to Animals and Plants, in reference to a passage in the John Irving novel The World According to Garp, but later Hatfield herself changed it to There’s Always Another Girl, in reference to a song in the album of the same name she had written as a defense for Lindsay Lohan after watching her flop I Know Who Killed Me.
There’s Always Another Girl was released on August 30, 2011, again independently on her Ye Olde Records label, though a downloadable version was made available to contributors a month before on July 27, which was Juliana’s birthday. The album has received mostly positive reviews from critics.
Hatfield returned two years later as her 10th studio album Peace & Love was released on Ye Olde Records, February 16, 2010. The album’s composition, arrangement, performance, production, engineering, and mixing were solely credited to Hatfield. The album received mixed reviews, with several complaining the album’s low-key moody nature working against the potential of the songs.
During October 2010 Hatfield and Evan Dando played two sell-out acoustic live shows together at The Mercury Lounge in New York. The following month the duo played sell out shows in Allston, a neighborhood of Boston. This tour was followed, in January 2011, by five dates on the American east coast.
Hatfield’s 9th studio album, How to Walk Away, was released on August 19, 2008 on Ye Olde Records. The album’s heartfelt subject on the break-up of a relationship resonated with critics, who gave the album largely positive reviews, with some hailing it as her best album since In Exile Deo.
On March 25, 2008, Hatfield began her own blog through her website titled An Arm and A Leg. The blogs lasted about a year before being removed. Each week, or thereabouts, she’d revealed the influences behind one of her songs.
Hatfield released the book When I Grow Up: A Memoir on September 22, 2008.
In 2007 Hatfield signed the Boston (now Austin)-based band Frank Smith to her record label, Ye Olde Records. Along with releasing their 2007 album Heavy Handed Peace and Love, Hatfield also recorded an EP with the band titled Sittin’ in a Tree. The EP, produced by Frank Smith’s Aaron Sinclair, features banjos, pedal steel, and other instruments normally associated with country music.
In 2006, Hatfield released her first live album. Titled The White Broken Line: Live Recordings, the album featured performances from her tour with X. It was Hatfield’s third release for her record label.
By contrast, the 2005 album Made in China was recorded in Bellows Falls, Vermont and Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was released on her own record label, Ye Olde Records. The record had a much rawer feel, with Hatfield playing instruments accompanied by the band Unbusted and other contributors. For the first time, Hatfield also played drums on at least one track.
In December 2005, Hatfield toured the United States with the band X, whom she idolized during her teenage years.
In 2004, Hatfield released In Exile Deo, an attempt at a more commercial sound with input from producers and engineers who had worked with Pink and Avril Lavigne. Hatfield produced the album with David Leonard, receiving co-production credits on “Jamie’s in Town” and the bright rocker “Sunshine”. The critics praised it, with some calling it her best work since the start of her solo career.
In 2002, Hatfield released Gold Stars 1992–2002: The Juliana Hatfield Collection. It contained singles from her solo albums, two songs from the unreleased God’s Foot, a cover of Neil Young’s “Only Love Can Break Your Heart”, and new songs.
In 2001, she joined with Freda Love and Heidi Gluck (of The Pieces and The Only Children) to form the trio Some Girls, with which she performs in addition to her solo work; the group has toured the United States twice and has released two albums. The trio is another outlet for Hatfield’s more lighthearted material. Their first album, entitled Feel It, was released by Koch Records in 2003. The lead single “Necessito” is a funky affirmation of the power of music, sung in a mixture of English and Spanish. Some Girls’ second album, Crushing Love, was released in July 2006.
In 2000, she released Beautiful Creature. This album left the rockier side of Hatfield’s musical personality unexpressed, however, so simultaneously she recorded Juliana’s Pony: Total System Failure with Zephan Courtney and Mikey Welsh. She called the latter album “a loud release of tension” with “lots of long sloppy guitar solos. And no love songs…a not-at-all attractive reaction to the ugly side of humanity, specifically American culture.” The two albums were released simultaneously . Billboard called the first “a collection of plaintive demos” and the second “chock-a-block with punk guitar missives.” Juliana’s Pony: Total System Failure was panned by some critics who preferred the more acoustic Beautiful Creature. On Beautiful Creature, Hatfield worked with musician Davíd Garza who co-produced much of the album. Wally Gagel, a producer for Sebadoh and Tanya Donelly, helped Hatfield record her most electronica-influenced songs, “Cool Rock Boy” and “Don’t Rush Me”, which added texture to the otherwise acoustic album.
Hatfield has also recorded with The Lemonheads, living for a time with Evan Dando in the college neighborhood of Allston in Boston, and contributed backing vocals to recordings by Belly, Giant Sand, Susanna Hoffs, Aimee Mann, and Mary Lou Lord. She teamed up with Dando in 1999 to record Gram Parsons’s song “$1,000 Wedding” on the compilation, Return of the Grievous Angel: A Tribute to Gram Parsons.
Almost as a reaction to the seemingly endless studio sessions surrounding God’s Foot, Hatfield recorded the album Bed in 1998 in six days, about which she said on her website, “It sounds as raw as I felt. It has no pretty sheen. The mistakes and unattractive parts were left in, not erased. Just like my career. Just like life.”
Hatfield’s musical influences are diverse, ranging from punk groups like X, The Stooges, and The Replacements to more folk-oriented rock artists like Neil Young, whose songs the Blake Babies frequently covered in live shows. Her work has also cross-fertilized with some other contemporaneous indie rock bands such as Dinosaur Jr. and Lemonheads, whose musicians are also friends of Hatfield’s. From an early age, she has also had a special love for pretty-sounding pop music. In a 1998 interview, she stated, “I just always liked pop music and really good melodies and major chords. That’s just the type of music that comes naturally to me”. In a 1993 interview in Melody Maker magazine, Hatfield stated that her enthusiasm for the music of the pop group Wilson Phillips apparently led, at least in part, to the breakup of the Blake Babies.
In 1997 Hatfield toured with Lilith Fair, an all-female rock festival founded by singer Sarah McLachlan.
In 1996, she traveled to Woodstock, New York where she recorded tracks for God’s Foot, which was to be her fourth solo album (third if not counting Become What You Are, which was recorded with the Juliana Hatfield Three), intended for 1997 release. After three failures to satisfy requests by Atlantic Records to come up with a single, she asked to be released from her contract. The label obliged but kept the rights to the songs recorded during these sessions. Atlantic had paid $180,000 on the recordings. “Mountains of Love” and “Fade Away” were released on a greatest hits collection entitled Gold Stars, while “Can’t Kill Myself” was available for download from Hatfield’s website. The remaining tracks surfaced on bootlegs, which she disapproved of, and she has rarely played them live.
Hatfield briefly appeared on an episode of Space Ghost Coast to Coast named “Surprise”, which aired on June 19, 1996. Instead of being interviewed, she simply said “uhh” and then was zapped by Zorak.
“Spin the Bottle” was used in the soundtrack of the Hollywood film Reality Bites (1994). Hatfield also made the cover of Spin magazine.
The Juliana Hatfield Three only remained together through 1994, by 1995 she had returned to solo status and released the album Only Everything, in which she “turned up the volume and the distortion and had a lot of fun”. One reviewer describes it as “a fun, engaging pop album”. The album spawned another alternative radio hit for Hatfield in “Universal Heartbeat”. In the video Hatfield portrayed a demanding aerobics instructor. Before the tour for Only Everything, she released Phillips and hired Jason Sutter on drums, Ed Slanker on guitar, and Lisa Mednick on keyboards. Two weeks into the tour, she canceled the tour.
Beyond her musical accomplishments, Hatfield has also guest-starred on several television shows, including The Adventures of Pete & Pete as a lunch lady and on the cult classic My So-Called Life’s 1994 Christmas episode as a deceased homeless girl who has become an angel. During the mid-1990s she was a staple on MTV’s 120 Minutes alternative music program, and she performed on the Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O’Brien in 1995.
Her commercial breakthrough came in 1993 with the formation of the band The Juliana Hatfield Three along with high-school friend Dean Fisher on bass and former Bullet LaVolta drummer Todd Philips, with herself performing lead vocal and lead guitar duties. The band produced the album Become What You Are and two hit singles, “My Sister” and “Spin the Bottle”.
After the break-up of the Blake Babies, she joined The Lemonheads as their bass player, replacing founding bassist Jesse Peretz, and played on their breakthrough album It’s a Shame About Ray in 1992. She left the band after about a year, but returned in 1993 as a guest vocalist on several tracks of Come on Feel the Lemonheads.
In 1992, she released her debut solo album Hey Babe, which attracted little attention.
Juliana Hatfield is an American musician and singer-songwriter from the Boston area, formerly of the indie rock bands Blake Babies, Some Girls, and The Lemonheads. She also fronted her own band, The Juliana Hatfield Three, along with bassist Dean Fisher and drummer Todd Philips, which was active in the mid-1990s and again in the mid-2010s. It was with the Juliana Hatfield Three that she produced her best-charting work, including the critically acclaimed albums Become What You Are (1993) and Whatever, My Love (2015) and the singles “My Sister” (1993) and “Spin the Bottle” (1994).
From her work with the Blake Babies to the present, Hatfield’s output has been characterized by an alternation between heavy, rocking tunes and songs written in a gentler, more melodic or folk-oriented style. Hatfield has stated that in the 1990s she tried smoking cigarettes for a short time in the hope of giving her voice a rougher quality, but eventually reconciled herself with her distinctive vocal instrument.
While still at Berklee College of Music in 1986, she formed the band Blake Babies with John Strohm and Freda Love. The band released 4 albums between 1987-1991, but failed to gain much critical notice, radio airplay, or commercial sales. The band broke up in 1992, but had a brief reunion in 2001 to produce another album.
Hatfield acquired a love of rock music during the 1970s, having been introduced by a babysitter to the music of the Los Angeles punk rock band X, which proved a life-changing experience. She was also attracted to the music of more mainstream artists like Olivia Newton-John and The Police.
