Matthew And The Atlas Coming To The Castle & Falcon
Saturday May 18th – 7pm to 11pm
Matthew and the Atlas is Matthew Hegarty. After two EPs of dreamy, textured Americana on Communion Records (the label’s first ever releases back in 2011) and a subsequent year of touring in Europe and the US, Hegarty retreated home – and to his sometime day job as a landscape gardener – to mull over the songs developing in his head and how best to present them to the world.
In the summer of 2013, he went into the studio and, in a short burst, recorded what will be the much-anticipated debut Matthew and the Atlas album (due in spring 2014 on Communion Records).
“Tunes that possess the dusty, muscular appeal of Springsteen” – MOJO
“Hegarty’s earthy odes to heartbreak and deliverance have a classic quality … absolutely spellbinding” – The Independent
“The new hope” – London Evening Standard
