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, two years later, on the Audiogram label. 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 nominations at the 39th ADISQ Gala, for Album of the year and Concert of the year–Anglophone categories. The Solitudes tour that followed the album’s release had him criss-crossing Canada, the United States and Europe, to perform nearly 200 concerts.
Reunited in the studio with producer Connor Seidel, Matt Holubowski pushes sonic experimentation to another level with the creation of a new record to be released in early 2020 : Weird Ones. He sweeps us away by the sweetness and intensity of his folk style inflected with pop, rock, and indie. For the first time, he tackles love in his songs, drawing from his experiences and delivering his most personal tracks to date, harnessing the writing process to break free. Weird Ones invites us into a parallel universe, a world at once beautiful, strange, colourful, and surreal, a place where everything is possible.
