Andrew Hyatt lays his soul bare on his brand new EP,Hyatt’s new EP is now available digitally via 604 Records. ABEL is the follow up to Hyatt’s 2018 release CAIN. ABEL offers up Hyatt’s classic storytelling abilities with heartbreaking musical arrangements and captures the unassuming emotion of daily moments. ABEL delivers an intimate collection of new songs, stripped down, and raw. , both simple and complicated in the same listen.
“ABEL is a collective of songs written from real places,” explains Hyatt. “It wasn’t intended to ever be released, it wasn’t ever intended for anybody other than me. But then, as I started to listen to them, and just play them, I realized that the honest songs that come from the dark places, from the broken places, from song-writing that’s just for me, those are the songs that I want people to hear, people to connect with.”
ABEL also features multiple appearances by CCMA Award nominee Jessica Mitchell. Though only five tracks, ABEL delivers a beautifully complex compilation of songs.
Last year, Hyatt hit the road with Dean Brody on his acoustic Dirt Road Stories Tour, performing new tracks live throughout the Ontario run of the tour. Immediately following, he joined Tim Hicks for a string of dates across the prairies and west coast as part of the Get Loud Tour.

One More Tonight
Isn’t Love So Easy
Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
