Canadian singer-songwriter Matt Mays returns with the release of Once Upon a Hell of a Time....

Matt co-produced the album with collaborator Loel Campbell (Wintersleep). This is Matt Mays’ sixth album and the follow up to Coyote, winner of the 2014 JUNO Award for Rock Album of the Year.

Constantly on the move, Matt made the record all over North America with sessions in California, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New York. The result is a thirteen-track rock album sure to thrill long-time fans and new listeners. Matt himself describes the album as “party rock for the heartbroken.”

After departing seminal alt-country collective The Guthries back in 2002, Matt alternated between solo projects (his self-titled debut, the faux soundtrack …When the Angels Make Contact) and band projects (the eponymous Matt Mays & El Torpedo record and 2008’s Terminal Romance). Following the dissolution of Matt Mays & El Torpedo in 2009, Matt released Coyote in 2012 to much acclaim, including the JUNO Award win.

Look for Matt Mays on tour, playing new songs and old favourites too.
Stealing Oceans
Stealing Oceans
It’s rapper and lyricist Brian Thompson’s love for words and melodies that steered him away from the
grip of a five-year struggle with drugs and alcohol. Now sharing his positivity as the frontman and leader
of Stealing Oceans, he has created a unique sound to help spread positivity and remain an encouraging
influence.
 
Fresh off signing a management deal with Starstruck Entertainment in Nashville, Stealing Oceans has
been honing their hip-hop sound, drawing influences from the likes of Macklemore, Gym Class Heroes,
Hoodie Allen and Jon Bellion. They have seen early signs of success with their debut single “Blueprint”
and EP Let The Kids Play earning attention from critics in Nashville and beyond. Indie music blog
Nashville Unsigned said of the EP, “Stealing Oceans is here to provide you with music of substance and
realness.”
 
The group’s energetic live show - which includes stagedives, crowd surfing and backflips - has not gone
unnoticed either, with the band being nominated for “Best Live Act” three years in a row at the
Nashville Industry Music Awards. The band tours heavily, with a European tour and a string of college
shows this summer and upcoming festival slots at KAABOO in San Diego and the Cayman Islands.
 
But the band’s vitality is not only for entertainment alone. Stealing Oceans hopes to encourage their
fans to be appreciative each day by fusing positivity and optimism into their sound and lyrics. They take
time out of their touring schedule to their story with others, hosting charity events and actively raising
awareness for suicide prevention and mental health. Stealing Oceans aim to use their platform to make
a difference in people’s lives. They strive to inspire others with their moto: “Stay Youthful, Be Grateful,
and Always Love.”
