Life happens, and it lives on in music. As such, The Franklin Electric reflect formative personal moments on a canvas of indie, folk, and alternative. The Montreal-based collective founded and fronted by Jon Matte transforms experiences into anthems and has done so since emerging on the 2014 debut, This Is How I Let You Down. Logging nearly 400 shows, they canvased the world alongside everyone from Mumford & Sons, Ben Howard to Edward Sharpe, City and Colour an Half Moon Run. Along the way, 2017’s Blue Ceilings marked a major milestone. Not only did the record produce favourites such as “I Know The Feeling” and “Someone Just Like You,” but it also led to a nomination at the 2018 JUNO® awards in the category of Breakthrough Group of the Year. The latter experience set the stage for his next evolution. In Vancouver for the ceremony, Jon identified an endless wellspring of inspiration from the mountains and landscapes of the Canadian West Coast. So, he holed up in Vancouver to write what would become the 2019 EP, In Your Head (Nettwerk)— and more forthcoming tunes. During 2019, he took those ideas and images to several Vancouver studios and cut the five tracks comprising In Your Head. As a producer, Jon added electronics and programming from his home studio. Given the personal nature of his journey, he tried to translate normal and honest everyday feelings to his songwriting.

Matt Holubowski‘s career has really taken off since the 2014 release of Old Man, a collection of folk songs inspired by his many trips and experiences around the world. The watershed moment would be the release of Solitudes (Audiogram) two years later. Produced by Connor Seidel, just as the previous and upcoming ones, the album introduced him to a wide audience who discovered his mercurial voice and captivating songs. Matt earned a Gold record for Solitudes as well as two ADISQ nominations. The Solitudes tour that followed the album’s release had him criss-crossing Canada, the United States and Europe, to perform nearly 200 concerts. In the Spring of 2018, he signed with the German label Motor Musik and the French label Yokanta, distributing Solitudes in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Belgium. Soon after, he participated in the Printemps de Bourges, toured Europe as support for Ben Folds, and performed in London’s Meltdown Festival at the invitation of The Cure’s Robert Smith. Returning to North America, Matt played summer dates at Bonnaroo, the Festival d’été de Québec, the Regina, Ottawa and Winnipeg folk festivals, and Osheaga, then a fall tour of the eastern US. In early 2019, Matt opened for singer-songwriter Dan Mangan in eastern Canada, a last waltz before retreating to the woods in Banff, Alberta, to write the songs for his new album, Weird Ones (released Feb 21, 2020). Slowly moving away from folk, he explores new sounds and fleshes out his songs’ arrangements in collaboration with his musicians, guitarist Simon Angell, bassist Marc-André Landry, drummer Stéphane Bergeron and cellist/keyboardist Marianne Houle.

A solitary and contemplative soul, Elliot Maginot enjoys exploring new sounds, refining textures, handling words and expanding his orchestrations. In 2013, following the release of his debut EP, Elliot carved out a place for himself on the Montreal music scene as an independent artist, which allowed him to perform throughout Quebec and to be noticed by the Indica record label which offered him his first record contract. His debut, Young / Old / Everything.In.Between, hovers between pop and folk rock left field. The album won him two nominations at the Gala GAMIQ, earned radio rotation at CHOM and CBC music and opened the door to perform in several renowned festivals including the Montreal International Jazz Festival., the Festival d’été de Québec, Le Festi-Voix de Trois-Rivières, Canadian Music Week (Toronto) and Aurores Montréal (Paris). After a 10-country tour, Maginot signed with Audiogram to launch sophomore album Comrades in November 2018. Co-produced with Connor Seidel (Matt Holubowski, Charlotte Cardin), this opus was decidedly more pop, but also more sophisticated and complex in its arrangements with sounds reminiscent of Phil Collins, The War On Drugs and Peter Gabriel. The record received unanimous critical acclaim and produced a chart single in ” Common Place”. In May 2021, Maginot returns with Easy Morning, an essentially acoustic album co-produced with Connor Seidel that combines the soft string arrangement, with warm brass and West African influences.
