Artist To Watch - Matthew and the Atlas

Drawing comparisons to John Martyn and Ray Lamontagne, London's Matthew Hegarty and his backing band The Atlas find a way to intertwine both traditional U.K. folk elements and contemporary acoustic song crafting. A must listen for fans of the genre.

Matthew and the Atlas are currently on tour with another band I'm really loving. Recently mentioned Mumford and Sons.

Their debut, the upcoming EP, To The North will be released April 12, 2010, I highly recommend it.

Check out the new track I Will Remain below.
