Led by vocalist / songwriter Mark Hegarty, Hegsy and The Elements produce Anthemic Celtic Americana Music.
Musically the sound combines the honesty of Country, Irish Folk, Welsh Gospel and Americana fused together with big choruses rich in harmonies producing a distinctive accessible sound.
Lyrically songs are wholesome, passionate, real, relatable and produced with optimism to share and unite.
The single “Apple of My Eye” has become an anthem for Parental Alienation and united a global community of affected children, parents and grandparents. It has been play-listed in Austria, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Guatemala, Holland, India, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, UK and USA. On April 25th Hegsy has been invited to perform at Downing Street, London to support Global Parental Awareness Day.
The new Album “My Truths” sees Hegsy collaborating with the much-respected Al Steele (Korgis) at Shabby Road Studios. The album solidifies the distinctive sound incorporating influences from artists such as John Mellencamp, Elton John, Hothouse Flowers, Elvis, Robert Palmer, Tom Petty, George Michael, Lucinda Williams, The Alarm, INXS and Bruce Springsteen.
In April 2016 Hegsy and The Elements played 24 concerts in 24 hospitals in 5 days in aid of Inhale The Music bringing people together through music and art to raise funding and awareness of Cystic Fibrosis.
