Watch: Matt Mays Live in the Stiegl Hidden Studio

Live in the Stiegl Hidden Studio, Matt Mays performs "Ola Volo," "NYC Girls," and "Faint of Heart" from Once Upon a Hell of a Time

Matt Mays returned this fall with Once Upon a Hell of a Time, the long awaited follow-up to his 2012 Juno Award-winning album Coyote. The Halifax singer-songwriter recorded most of the album with co-producer Loel Campbell of Wintersleep.

“This is a snapshot of four or five years of my life that were pretty wild, and pretty lost, and pretty free — in certain ways — and I felt like I was coming to the end of a bit of a chapter,” says Matt. “It was a f~~king wild ride of emotions and late nights and all the feels. Kind of the record I’ve always wanted to make.”

Matt Mays brought his band, including Loel Campbell on drums, and performed a few songs from Once Upon a Hell of a Time. He and Campbell also talked about their personal and musical connection that helped make this new album special.
