Dan Mangan is a two-time JUNO award-winning & two-time Polaris Music Prize listed musician and songwriter.
2018 brings Dan’s 5th full length More or Less, an album about witnessing birth, and in some ways rebirth. It’s about feeling disconnected from a popular identity and becoming acclimated to a new one. It’s about raising kids in a turbulent world. It’s about unanswerable questions and kindness and friendship and fear. Produced by Grammy Award winning producer Drew Brown (Radiohead, Beck, Blonde Redhead, Charlotte Gainsbourg) and Simone Felice (The Lumineers, Bat For Lashes), More or Less features singles “Troubled Mind”, “Fool For Waiting” and “Just Fear”.
Aside from his own recordings, Dan has scored a feature film (starring Simon Pegg) as well as TV series for Netflix & AMC and has infrequently been a contributing writer for several international publications. Dan has toured extensively in North America, Europe and Australia. In 2017, Mangan co-founded Side Door, an online platform that connects hosts with artists for intimate performances in unique spaces. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia with his wife and two sons.
Born to a Polish father and a Quebecer mother, Matt Holubowski grew up in Hudson, a bucolic village west of Montreal.
It was not until he was 17 that he decided to pick up the guitar, in part out of admiration for his cousin, also a musician. His first influences were much heavier (Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Disturbed), which led to him joining a punk band in CEGEP as a guitarist. At that point, he still did not have much of an interest in singing. In 2008, he discovered Elliott Smith, a revelatory artist who would lead Matt to shed the electric and pick up his first acoustic guitar. So began a transition into the world of folk music that would also lead to finding a voice. In Fall 2016, he released his sophomore album, Solitudes (Audiogram).
