Hiatt met Don Ellis of Epic Records in 1973, and received a record deal, releasing his first single, "We Make Spirit," later that year with Ellis on drums and Michael Bell, a young but powerhouse guitar player from Hampton Virgina on second lead guitar. That same year Hiatt wrote the song "Sure As I’m Sitting Here," which was recorded by Three Dog Night, and went to number 16 on the Billboard chart in 1974.

The first, All of a Sudden was produced by Tony Visconti, and featured use of keyboards and synthesisers; his future albums .bined country and soul influences. Riding With the King appeared in 1983, produced by Scott Mathews, Ron Nagle and Nick Lowe. During this period, Rosanne Cash covered several Hiatt .positions, taking "It Hasn’t Happened Yet" to the Top 20 on the country charts. In 1983, Cash would duet with John Hiatt on his "The Way We Make a Broken Heart" produced by Mathews and Nagle.

Hiatt recorded a duet with Costello, a cover version of the Spinners’ song, "Living A Little, Laughing A Little," which appeared on Warming Up to the Ice Age.
