Canadian singer-songwriter Matt Holubowski unveils his fourth album, ‘Like Flowers on a Molten Lawn’. Co-produced by the artist and Pietro Amato (Bell Orchestre), the reflective collection of songs includes previous releases ‘Sandy Cove’ ‘My Burrow’ ‘End Scene’ and six additional brand-new tracks.
Matt Holubowski’s career has really taken off since the release of Old Man in 2014, 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, by Audiogram. With over 45 000 albums sold and 17M streams, a Gold Record as well as two nominations at the ADISQ Gala, for Album of the year and Concert of the year – English language categories, the record introduced Matt to a wide audience who discovered his mercurial voice and captivating songs. His very first tour started with a respectable thirty dates, but it quickly turned into 50, 100, 150, 200 shows, selling over 20,000 tickets. He toured all around Canada, USA, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, and the UK, and supported Ben Folds, Sophie Hunger, and Dan Mangan. Some of his highlights were performing at Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, La Cigale in Paris, Paradiso in Amsterdam, The Barbican in London, Vicar Street in Dublin, Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, Osheaga (Main Stage!) in Montreal, and Bonnaroo in Tennessee, Printemps de Bourges and performing at London’s Meltdown Festival at the invitation of Robert Smith, singer of The Cure.
