MATT HECKLER: Bluegrass/Folk Soloist Livestream Performance Takes Place This Sunday; Billboard-Charting Blood, Water, Coal Out Now On Anti-Corporate Music + Vinyl Street Date Confirmed


Blood, Water, Coal , the second studio album from North Carolina-based  MATT HECKLER , will see a proper vinyl release in May, following its Billboard-charting digital debut in February.

 


MATT HECKLER  is a solo multi-instrumentalist that barely fits into any ordinary musical category. He tends to keep to the darker side of Appalachian mountain music and early bluegrass but listen long enough and you'll soon be transported to the mountains of Eastern Europe or a dimly lit bar in Ireland where they honor those who have passed with a gently swaying a cappella ballad.

 


After touring almost nonstop for years in support of bands like Devil Makes Three, Lost Dog Street Band, Flogging Molly, and others,  HECKLER , like the rest of us, got sidelined by the ongoing global pandemic. With his newfound time off, he set to pushing his creative boundaries as far as his mind would allow, each fiddle, banjo, and guitar track carefully put in place all the while retaining the grit and energy reflected in his live shows. Paired perfectly as the sequel to  After The Flood , the  Blood, Water, Coal  album is a defining release in his career.

 


Blood, Water, Coal  was performed and recorded by  MATT HECKLER  with upright bass and backing vocals provided by Jeff Loops (Lost Dog Street Band). While recording  Blood, Water, Coal MATT HECKLER  released  The Magnolia Sessions  outdoor live set – the maiden release for the now popular series – which made it to #9 on the Bluegrass Billboard Charts. The  Magnolia Sessions  was still charting upon the release of  Blood, Water, Coal , which debuted at #3, leaving  HECKLER  with two albums running on the Billboard Charts simultaneously.

 


HECKLER  writes, “I started working on this album over a year ago in my home. Ran into a lot of snags and problems inherent in self-recording, but being alone, just a mic and my instruments, was the only way to capture the raw emotions this collection of songs holds for me. Some of these tunes were written over a decade ago, most of them in more recent years. Others took years to write. But now that it’s done, I can confidently say this album is the perfect sequel to  After The Flood .”
