Levi Parham is an Americana musician, singer and songwriter from southeast Oklahoma. The Kansas City Star called him "An Okie version of Ray Lamontagne..." while The Bluegrass Situation said, "Perhaps it's something in the water - that same iron-heavy tap drink that Woody Guthrie sipped on as a young man....Whatever it is, Levi Parham has it."
There are outlaws, and there are outlaws. Some practice the pose and cultivate the image, though seldom dirty their soft, bourgeois hands with anything actually outside the law. When they do, it is often despicable, irresponsible or just plain mundane. The Actual Wolf, however, is a real outlaw and has pled guilty to it.
The songs on Matt Haeck’s debut album, Late Bloomer, are permeated with evocative tales of struggle with vice, addiction, depression, divorce and other demons. He is scrappy with a genuine, lyrical voice. Haeck sings of hard-earned truths, both his own and those of the original characters he creates.
The David Mayfield-produced album was recorded in East Nashville at East Side Manor Studios and will be released via Blaster Records on June 3rd.
