Matt Elliott is a singer/songwriter from Bristol, United Kingdom, who plays folk music with an approach of a dark ambience.He also produced & recorded under the name The Third Eye Foundation.

Elliott was first inspired to investigate & to attempt to understand music at around 7 years old on hearing the mournful tonesof a russian orthodox choir & wondering how music alone can move you to tears. This would eventually inspire him to studymusic un-academically through his own research into sound & music.

He started his musical career in a record shop from the age of 16. A second hand record shop (The legendary RevolverRecords who’s employees have included Dave Pearce (Flying Saucer Attack), Daddy G, Debbie Manning (Foehn)) owned by amusic enthusiast to rival John Peel, Matt considers these years as his basic education in music. He formed along with KateWright (Movietone) & Rachel Brook (Movietone/Flying Saucer Attack) the band ‘Linda’s Strange Vacation’ which met onSundays to rehearse in a shed at Brooks parents with begged borrowed & stolen instruments including rolls of carpets,snooker cues, a broken keyboard then slowly the guitars & drums arrived. Kate Wright & Rachel Brook went on to formMovietone with which Matt played as an occasional member. About the same time Brook & Dave Pearce formed Flying Saucerattack & the first version of The Third Eye Foundation appeared, the idea being a loose collective. Elliott recorded with FlyingSaucer attack under this name involving Debbie Manning (Foehn) & Niven Murray on a couple of tracks. « hide
