Village Sounds presents
MAT MCHUGH & THE SEPERATISTA SOUNDSYSTEM
One of Australia's most inspiring and soulful song writers, Mat McHugh is heading back out on the road to play a handful of intimate shows.
"McHugh stepping out on his own has shown the integrity of the songs and his ability as a singer-songwriter.... They get you in the heart, and as a songwriter McHugh has a way with words and melodies that are just so easy to connect to." - FasterLouder.com.au
When Mat. recorded his latest album LOVE COME SAVE ME, released earlier this year, he wasn't sure which way to go. All the elements that had once been separate had, over the past decade, merged into one. He is The Beautiful Girls, The Beautiful Girls are Mat.
And as he pondered back and forth under just what banner to release these songs, thoughts of all the albums bought and cherished, the hundreds of thousands of faces, from thousands of gigs over many a year and the 80, 000 Facebook buddies, floated to the front of his mind.
The decision was clear: the album would be released under his most honest of monikers, his own name, and it would be a gift, available for free to everyone who had made the journey possible and to everyone who would like to join him from here on in.
The album has since been downloaded over 50, 000 times worldwide! and in response to this unexpected digital flood, Mat. has pulled together a crew of his most respected musician's and as Mat. McHugh & the Seperatista Soundsystem will take LOVE COME SAVE ME to the stage at some of his favourite festivals and summer holiday destinations.
"I just want to play the songs live as they are on the record and as intended when I put this record together", says Mat. Come join him and share the love, the stories and the music that is Mat. McHugh, this summer.
LOVE COME SAVE ME is available as a free digital download from www.lovecomesaveme.com.
A deluxe version with 3 bonus tracks is also available for purchase through www.matmchughmusic.com and at all Mat. McHugh shows.
