Matt Holubowski‘s career has really taken off since the 2014 release of Old Man , a collection of folk songs inspired by his many trips and experiences around the world. The watershed moment would be the release of Solitudes (Audiogram) two years later. Produced by Connor Seidel, just as the previous and upcoming ones, the album introduced him to a wide audience who discovered his mercurial voice and captivating songs. Matt earned a Gold record for Solitudes as well as two ADISQ nominations. The Solitudes tour that followed the album’s release had him criss-crossing Canada, the United States and Europe, to perform nearly 200 concerts. In the Spring of 2018, he signed with the German label Motor Musik and the French label Yokanta, distributing Solitudes in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Belgium. Soon after, he participated in the Printemps de Bourges, toured Europe as support for Ben Folds, and performed in London’s Meltdown Festival at the invitation of The Cure’s Robert Smith. Returning to North America, Matt played summer dates at Bonnaroo, the Festival d’été de Québec, the Regina, Ottawa and Winnipeg folk festivals, and Osheaga, then a fall tour of the eastern US. In early 2019, Matt opened for singer-songwriter Dan Magnan in eastern Canada, a last waltz before retreating to the woods in Banff, Alberta, to write the songs for his next album, Weird Ones (Feb 21, 2020). Slowly moving away from folk, he explores new sounds and fleshes out his songs’ arrangements in collaboration with his musicians, guitarist Simon Angell, bassist Marc-André Landry, drummer Stéphane Bergeron and cellist and keyboardist Marianne Houle.
