Wild Heart was recorded in August of 2019 at Echo Mountain Recording Studio in Asheville, North Carolina. It was engineered and mixed by Julian Dreyer and mastered by Jonathan Berlin. Listen to it now!
Hay Sugar started as a duo, Madison Flego and Matt Leech. We have been lucky to play and share a stage with many incredible musicians over the years including: Paul Leech, Branden King, Andrew Pertes, Rich Fiset, Michael Rudolph, Badge Manser, Salley Williamson, and Benadikt Hammer.
This song was written about Madison's grandfather, Lou. In the late 1960s, he was asked to find a missing girl in Spain. They held a plane for him, he traveled to the small town that he knew like the back of his hand and found her! This song is featured on our recently released EP, Wild Heart- available on all platforms and at haysugar.com.
Whiskey or Water is a song off of our EP, Wild Heart. Its lyrics revolve around the tough choices we have to make, learning to trust yourself, and letting go of heavy things to stay afloat. On the album, "Whiskey or Water" features layered guitar, cello and vocals. We hope you enjoy our stripped down, live version!
