New Music Friday: Matt Holubowski

Matt Holubowski presents Solitudes (Epilogue), an extended version of his album, Solitudes. Released on October 20th, the deluxe record includes the complete Solitudes record, in addition to Epilogue, an EP of three songs – two of which were composed this summer: The Weatherman (or, The Felonies are Magnets on my Coat), and Nostalgiablue; while Dawn, She Woke Me had never appeared on a recording, but was well known to those that had seen his live show. Solitudes (Epilogue) is now available on all digital platforms and as a limited edition CD. 

In Montreal’s studios, Madame Wood & Dandurand, Matt was surrounded by his faithful tour-mates: Stéphane Bergeron (drums, percussion), Marc-André Landry (bass), Simon Angell (guitar, omnichord, organ, wurlitzer), Marianne Houle (cello, ukulele) and Christian-Adam Gilbert (sound recording). The songs found on Solitudes come to life also thanks to Julie Boivin (violin), Sarah Martineau (viola) and the producer Connor Seidel, while the updated album cover was designed once again by Mathilde Corbeil. 

Matt has also received his very first nominations at the ADISQ Gala this year, for Album of the Year – Anglophone, and Tour of the Year – Anglophone. The awards will be presented on October 26th during the Premier Gala de l’ADISQ, live on Télé-Québec.
