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 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.

“Guitars awash with spacey reverb, crisp banjo and plucked acoustic [serve as a] reminder that at the heart of it all, the roots here are firmly planted in folk.”


Support from


Consisting of songwriters Ollie Spalding and Jack Watts, the Brighton-based folk pop duo’s self-titled debut album showcases the pair at their very best – delicate layers of finger-picked guitars, hushed vocals and harmony executed with laser-focused precision.

Memorial’s debut considers love, longing, friendship and the hope that it brings, delivered in an intimate manner that appeals to the listener as a close confidant. This dynamic has undoubtedly contributed to the pair’s recognition in recent years, with the single ‘Latchkey’ having been nominated for Song of the Year at the AMA UK Awards in 2022.
