After a bit of experience in some short-lived garage bands, slaughtering skate-punk tunes in his teenage years, Elliot went through a “hermit period” working with his guitar and honing his ability to create beautiful melodies.
Snippets of music, scattered choruses and verses soon became real songs. Elliot Maginot adorned his new tunes with layers of vocals, a mood reminiscent of small cathedral choir. This experimentation led to a home-recording of his first EP revealed in 2013. The tracks delved into sensitive and dark folk embracing influences from greats like Nick Drake and Bob Dylan. His first full-length album, Young.Old.Everything.In.Between, produced by Jace Lasek (Besnard Lakes, Suuns), orbited even more in the atmospheric areas of dreamy pop, with lyrics infused with painful love, regrets and dualities. The album was released in 2015 with Indica Records and allowed him to tour extensively in Quebec, Canada, Australia and Europe.
« Maginot knows something about artistic identity, having forged his over the past four years of woodshedding. (…) That folk identity doesn’t quite explain the lavish, even pop-orchestral sound of Young/Old/Everything.In.Between.» - Montreal Gazette
« From the simple dream pop of "Everything in Between" to more organic folk numbers like "Bell" to the haunting, piano-driven album closer "I'm Just Looking to Be More Afraid," Maginot stretches his musical boundaries on this record. » - Exclaim!
