Reimagining a Hell of an Album with Matt Mays

Oct 17, 201841 minutes


On his latest offering, revered East Coast rocker Matt Mays has revisited and reimagined his 2017 LP, Once Upon a Hell of a Time. Aptly called Twice Upon a Hell of a Time, the release finds Mays and a group of close and trusted collaborators offering intimate, stripped-down takes of the more robust album tracks. He and Andrew dissect the process and talk about why he decided to tap one of Canada's top hard-rock producers for the project, bringing new musicians into the fold, how this exercise might inform his original songwriting going forward, and a lot more.

As well, since the interview with Matt was a bit shorter than our usual feature interview, we're adding some bonus content. We have two short advice segments done at IMSTA FESTA Toronto with mastering engineer Noah Mintz and 604 Records Project & Licensing Manager, Kara Purto.
