The Birmingham Live team are all geared up for this one as Birmingham Promoters bring Matthew and the Atlas to Birmingham this Saturday to play at the Castle and Falcon.
Matthew Hegarty (AKA Matthew and The Atlas) is a British singer songwriter and was the first artist to be signed to Communion. After the dreamy and textured Americana of his ‘To The North’ and ‘Kingdom of Your Own’ EPs had built him a cult global following, Hegarty released the debut album ‘Other Rivers’ in April 2014, prompting Q to call him “the British Bon Iver“. Recorded in East Nashville with Brian Hall and Eric Hillman from Foreign Fields, his latest album, ‘Temple’ is a cathartic expression of its writer’s own fears and feelings. New parenthood inevitably colours Hegarty’s perspective on the world — a world whose natural wonders seem terminally threatened by the relentless march of technology.
Support is from The Shivers and our BL team will be there to review.
