Mat. McHugh Playing Solo

Mat. McHugh lead man from The Beautiful Girls is about to embark on a solo adventure!

In November 2010 Mat. McHugh returned home from an intense international tour having delivered to the world The Beautiful Girls fourth album, Spooks. For many, this would be a time to recoup and re-energize, but for Mat. it was a time to keep moving whilst the body was warm and the mind prepared.

Leaving the band behind, Mat. jumped on a plane and headed for the USA, Mat. joined John Butler for a theatre tour across the States and into Canada. On stage, he was stripped back raw for the first time in many years.

For Mat. it was an awakening, a reminder of what music was and what it meant to be a musician. Back in touch with his roots he came home and over the next few months would lay down most of what would become his new solo album. This is the first of it. And he wants you to hear it.

Mat. is stopping by the Byron Bay Community Centre Theatre on Thursday 11th August as part of his tour around the country. Buy your ticket!
