American singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, born 27 July 1967 in Wiscasset, Maine, but raised in Massachusetts. Originally a member of the Music/BlakeBabies, going solo in 1992. Subsequently formed the supergroup Some Girls with Heidi Gluck and her sometime Blake Babies colleague Freda Love.

Her songwriting is often brilliant musically and/or lyrically (though not always both at the same time), much of it with a gloomy edge (she's been compared to a female Music/{{Morrissey}}). Despite her long career, she's only had two major hits, "My Sister" and "Spin The Bottle", both from the same album (''Become What You Are''). Also noted for her friendship (or whatever) with Evan Dando of TheLemonheads.

Published a memoir, ''When I Grow Up'', in 2008.

!!Ms. Hatfield and her work feature examples of:
* {{Adorkable}}
* AntiLoveSong: "Let's Get Married".
* BlackComedy: "Swan Song" (see below under DrivenToSuicide) falls into this category. Also, the fact that when asked by ''Rolling Stone'', in 1992 or thereabouts, to recommend a book, she recommended Creator/BretEastonEllis' ''Literature/AmericanPsycho'', calling it "hilariously funny".
* CoverVersion: Her SelfTitledAlbum, ironically, is an album of covers. She's done them occasionally earlier in her career as well, mostly in concert but occasionally on albums.
* DistinctDoubleAlbum: ''Beautiful Creature'' and ''Juliana's Pony: Total System Failure'', two albums in different styles released at the same time: ''Beautiful Creature'' was a largely acoustic-guitar-based album where Juliana was backed by various studio musicians, while ''Total System Failure'' was an electric AlternativeRock album where she was backed by the same two musicians (on bass and drums) throughout [[note]] In fact, while it's usually considered part of her solo discography, the "Juliana's Pony" part of the title is actually meant to be the name of the band who recorded the album[[/note]]
* DrivenToSuicide: "The Edge Of Nowhere" (the serious version), "Swan Song" (played for laughs).
* DrugsAreBad: "Addicted", "Dying Proof", "Total System Failure".
* GratuitousFrench: "Fleur de Lys".
* GriefSong: "Trying Not To Think About It" was written about the tragic and untimely death of her friend Music/JeffBuckley.
* HumansAreBastards: From "For the Birds":
-->''Humans only wreck the world''\\
''They'd kill your whole family for a string of pearls.''
* IAmNotPretty: "Ugly".
* IntercourseWithYou: "You Are The Camera".
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: When "God's Foot" was recorded, the A&R person at Creator/AtlanticRecords decided he "didn't hear a single" in the album, and therefore it wasn't released. While she was able to get out of her recording contract, she couldn't afford to buy back the rights to the album, and it has remained unreleased, but bootlegs slipped out and still circulate on the Net.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Variable. ''Peace And Love'' is a 1, while ''Made in China'' and ''Total System Failure'' are closer to 4 or 5.
* TheNineties: While she continues to record and tour to this day, she's usually associated with this decade.
* NoSparks: "Everybody Loves Me But You".
* ObfuscatingInsanity: When Atlantic decided not to release ''God's Foot'', she wanted out of her record contract. She figured her best chance of getting out would be to convince the record company executives that she was crazy, so she scheduled a meeting with the company's new president. Next, as she describes in her memoir:
-->I stopped bathing about a week before the scheduled meeting. And stopped brushing my hair. I stayed out of the sun and put a halt to my normal everyday exercise routine in order to eliminate any traces of a healthful facial glow, and replace it with a sickly pallor.
** It worked; she was dropped and has been indie ever since.
* SanitySlippageSong: "So Alone".
* [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Screwed By The Record Company]]: The fate of "God's Foot".
* SellOut: "Sellout" is actually a subversion:
-->It's not a sellout if nobody buys it.
* SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll: Largely averted in her case (though she had [[WeightWoe other sorts of problems]] for a while).
* ShoutOut: Several:
** "Nirvana"
** The title of ''Become What You Are'' is a ShoutOut to Nietzsche (specifically ''Ecce Homo'').
** "Swan Song" has the line "[[Music/JohnCougarMellencamp Dear Jack, I hate you. Love Diane]]".
* SiblingRivalry: The first verse of "My Sister".
* UncommonTime: "Spin The Bottle" is in 5/4 time.
* WeightWoe: She struggled with anorexia for a number of years.
* WeirdnessMagnet: In her memoir she reports that her tourmates have sometimes commented that she has weird fans.
