Folk Alternatif
The pairing of Elliot Maginot with a musical career wasn’t all planned out. It’s after a long « hermit phase » that he understood how much a guitar could do for him. Slowly, he’ll mix new chorus, choral echoes and multiple voices. His first EP, as the result of his experimentations, is launch to the web in 2013, digging further into folk music.The real work begins.
Continuing the exploration of musical possibilities and looking to reinvent himself, the artist creates his first album Young.Old.Everything.In.Between launched in February 2015. Hidden behind his alias, he’s paradoxically presenting us with his true self. Produced by Jace Lasek, Elliot Maginot’s album gravitated in a dreamy pop world.
Throughout the course of his young career, the artist has shared the stage many times opening for Coeur de Pirate, les Soeurs Boulay and Bobby Bazini. Which leaves no doubt. He doesn’t leave his peers indifferent.With the coming of his new album, it’s in front of two sold-out rooms that Elliot Maginot tested out the new songs with a Casse Glace show presented at Casa Del Popollo. After many show all over Quebec, Canada and Europe, Elliot Maginot is finally back home and finishing up his second album to be released in 2018.
Sometimes the unplanned turns into the greatest decision.
