About Elliot Maginot → In the beginning of summer 2013, an EP unveils these experiments and allows Elliot Maginot to chain the shows, especially in the first part of famous artists such as Joseph Arthur, Caracol, The Sisters Boulay, Kim Churchill, The Franklin Electric, Ian Kelly or Bobby Bazini.Appreciated by the public, the singer-songwriter is gradually gaining independence on stage and is even featured in several prestigious festivals. This experience gained on the boards benefits the recording of a first album Young / Old / Everything.In.Between, directed by Jason Lasek (Besnard Lakes, Suuns) and which appears in February 2015. Without denying its folk origins, Elliot Maginot now orbits in the more atmospheric spheres of a dreamlike pop. A passport to new horizons!
About Hein Cooper → With the release of his debut album The Art of Escape in 2016, things are speeding up for this Australian songwriter. Hein Cooper was entrusted with the first part of James Bay’s Australian tour and then with Lukas Graham’s shows in Europe and North America. He has also appeared in numerous festivals where he shares the poster with Sunset Sons and Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros before emancipating himself by multiplying the sold-out shows.
His song Rusty allows him to increase his popularity in Quebec by remaining in the top positions of the radio charts for 48 weeks, the video exceeding 600,000 views on YouTube. The version remixed with the singer Morgane Imbeaud knows in turn the success on the French waves. By his own admission, Hein Cooper does not like cataloging his songs, changing the folk of his beginnings into an exploration of new styles. Now domiciled in the UK, he is actively working on his second album.
