Matthew and the Atlas

Norwich Lanes

Matthew Hegarty (Matthew and the Atlas) has traversed a range of musical territories from classic acoustic folk, to dramatic synth-laden electronica, and urgent guitar led alt-rock. The common thread has been a songwriting style that marries a subtle melodic sensibility with lyrics full of natural imagery and dark emotional heft – all delivered in his striking and distinctive vocal. In the process, Hegarty has quietly built a major cult following in Europe and and the US.

His new album This Place We Live is out in Autumn 2023 on Communion Records.
