“If the reference imagery of Matthew's music is, as his fans well-know, that of the sitcom, Alone At St. Hugo is the perfect manifesto, in his rare ability to tell something of life and of himself lightly...By now we can say that we are faced with an artist who, despite his relative anonymity, has left a significant and recognizable mark on the contemporary American culture.”

“I will be shocked if something else will be my album of the year when we reach the end of the year. I just love everything about this...Why isn’t everyone singing and shouting the praises of Alone at St. Hugo from the rooftops? A dazzlingly brilliant album.”
- Finnish site One Chord To Another
Just want to thank everyone for a wonderful east coast tour & for all the support since the album has been out! If you've been digging the record digitally & would like to obtain it in the physical realm, please click here.
Special thanks to my incredible bandmates on this run: Connor Dodson, Evan Eklund, & my baby, Lauren Stinson!
"Alone at St. Hugo reads as a yearbook of Milia's lifetimes, each one pieced together with glue and popsicle sticks, and the emotional remnants of nearly 10 years of loneliness as a touring artist and an ongoing fascination with the intricacies of familial closeness."
Really nice in-depth article from Detroit Metro Times! Full article here.
Alone at St. Hugo comes out May 3!
Matthew Milia’s debut solo LP is currently being prepared for release this spring. In the meantime, we are excited to announce an opportunity to own one of just 7 vinyl test pressings. This will forever be a very rare document, and you will get to hear the album months before anyone else. Each test pressing will also come in a sleeve individually decorated, numbered, and signed by Matthew.
If you’re in the market for another personalized document, perhaps consider a lyric sheet handwritten by Matthew.
