Giveaway: Matt Elliott

1 Comment 25 March 2009

Multi-instrumentalist Matt Elliot will be bringing his intriguing mix of dark folk and lush electronica to Dublin on April 9th.

Known also for his role as the founding member of The Third Eye Foundation, Elliott’s music has drawn comparissons to the likes of Tom Waits and The Bad Seeds.

Courtesy of Foggy Notions, We’ve got two double-passes to giveaway, just comment below with the answer to the following question:

(Q) Where is Matt Elliott from?

Competiton will close on Wednesday 8th April at 12 noon. A winner be picked in a random draw from correct entries.

While most people were struggling to transcend the electronic aesthetic that had become associated with the city, Matt married sampling and electronics with acoustic instruments, song and voice for the critically acclaimed album The Mess We Made (Domino Records, 2003).

Now, having left Bristol altogether and settled in rural France, Matt continues to release albums that have variously been described as folk, vaudeville and chanson francaise.

His fiercely independent approach has won him many admirers, and Elliott has completed remixes for Mogwai, Thurston Moore, Blonde Redhead, Tarwater, The Pastels and Yann Tiersen amongst others. Matt also continues to collaborate with long-term friends Hood, and lends his playing to many more records as guitarist, drummer, clarinetist, violist player and programmer.

Tickets are currently onsale, priced €12.
