Toronto, ON – November 18, 2019 – Following the release of his Gold certified album, Solitudes, Matt Holubowski, criss-crossed Canada, Europe and the United States, performing over 200 concerts in two-and-a-half years. A creative retreat followed, which was paused ever-so-briefly to perform the closing show at last summer’s Montreal International Jazz Festival before a captivated audience.

Now, Holubowski announces that he will be back on the road early next year, performing new songs written in-and-around Paris, Krakow, Banff and Montreal. In these shows, under the banner of freedom, the singer-songwriter and his band will push musical exploration and experimental sound up a notch, transporting audiences between sensibility and intensity.

Today, he also shares Thoroughfarethe first song off of his new record, which is set to be released in early 2020. Have a listen here.

“Thoroughfare is about following something pure and beautiful down a narrow, colourful path, but getting a little lost along the way and leaving a bit of yourself behind, quietly lost in time,” shares Matt. “I’ve always deliberately avoided talking about love in my songs in the past, but certain events in my life in the last few years made it impossible for me to ignore it this time around. It’s literally in all the songs now, in some way or another. I couldn’t help myself. And I finally understood why people write love songs. They’re liberating.”

The 2020 tour will kick off in January in his home province of Quebec for two back to back shows at the Théâtre du Marais in Val-Morin, and will take Holubowski across North America, with stops in Kitchener, Toronto, Hamilton, and Kingston.
