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. 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.
