Skyflight Productions Presents: Matt Haeck
April 28 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$10.00
Skyflight Productions presents an evening with Matt Haeck on Friday April 28, 2017 at The Albert S George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. Matt Haeck comes by his contradictions honestly. Scrappy with a genuine, lyrical voice, he sings truths hard-earned from struggles most men twice his age haven’t seen. Born in Barbados, West Indies to missionary parents, he was introduced to music through hymns. While working on a Master Of Divinity to become a pastor, he fell out of love with theology and religion and decided to pursue music instead.
He began falling into addiction for the next four years with phases of pills, cocaine and alcohol. Entering rehab, only to relapse two months later, he then fell into the most hellish year of his life, at the end of which, he moved to Indianapolis to enter a yoga recovery program. It was during this time that he began crafting the songs of Late Bloomer, shortly moving back to Nashville, having been cast in Studio Tenn’s critically-acclaimed stage production “The Hank Legacy” and subsequently, “The Cash Legacy.”
The songs of Late Bloomer evoke raw truth through personal confessions and imaginative characters. With a silky Southern drawl, Haeck sings about depression, divorce, battling demons and vices.
Through personal failures and a new life after deciding to change, Matt Haeck has found himself through a series of dark turns while searching for the light on his debut album.
Late Bloomer was produced by David Mayfield and features appearances from Critter Fuqua (Old Crow Medicine Show), Paul Defiglia (The Avett Brothers), Caitlin Rose and Elizabeth Cook.
