Matt Hunsley Do You Need Me Near is the first release of 2017 for Newcastle-based musician Mat Hunsley, marking the next chapter in his exceptional documentation of the world as it revolves around him.

With significant support from the likes of Drowned in Sound, Buzzfeed and The Line Of Best Fit accompanying the release of his debut EP To Being Free last autumn, Hunsley’s profile continues to rise considerably and this latest track provides an even starker example of his wonderful blend of storytelling.

Evoking obvious comparisons to the likes of Bon Iver, Nathaniel Ratecliff and James Vincent McMorrow, the singer-songwriter’s honesty and emotion shine through on ‘Do You Need Me Near’, and with support slots for the likes of Seafret, To Kill A King and label-mates Axel Flóvent and Brooke Bentham already under his belt, Hunsley is set for a big year.

Produced by Mick Ross (Lanterns On The Lake, Ajimal, The Lake Poets), Mat Hunsley’s ‘Do You Need Me Near’ was released on 28th April via Trellis Records.
