Matt Elliott

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 tones of a Russian Orthodox choir & wondering how music alone can move you to tears. This would eventually inspire him to study music un-academically through his own research into sound & music. He started his musical career in a record shop from the age of 16.

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 tones of a Russian Orthodox choir & wondering how music alone can move you to tears. This would eventually inspire him to study music un-academically through his own research into sound & music. He started his musical career in a record shop from the age of 16. A secondhand record shop (the legendary Revolver Records, whose employees have included Dave Pearce (Flying Saucer Attack), Daddy G, Debbie Manning (Foehn)) owned by a music enthusiast to rival John Peel, Matt considers these years as his basic education in music. He formed, along with Kate Wright (Movietone) & Rachel Brook (Movietone/Flying Saucer Attack), the band Linda‚Äôs Strange Vacation, which met on Sundays to rehearse in a shed at Brook's 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 form Movietone with which Matt played as an occasional member. About the same time Brook & Dave Pearce formed Flying Saucer Attack & the first version of The Third Eye Foundation appeared, the idea being a loose collective. Elliott recorded with Flying Saucer Attack under this name involving Debbie Manning (Foehn) & Niven Murray on a couple of tracks. « hide
