Artist informations

The Franklin Electric is the reflection of emotions on a woven web of indie-rock, folk and alternative. Founded and directed by Jon Matte, the Montreal collective stands out by transforming experiences into anthems.

Since emerging in 2014 with their debut album This Is How I Let You Down, The Franklin Electric have performed over 400 shows in a dozen countries, sharing the stage with a host of artists including Mumford & Sons, Ben Howard, Edward Sharpe or even City And Color. Along the way, the album Blue Ceilings (2017) marks a milestone in the collective’s career. Not only does this opus give birth to essentials such as I Know the Feeling and Someone Just Like You, but it also leads to a nomination at the 2018 edition of the Juno Awards in Vancouver in the category “Breakthrough Group of the Year”. On this occasion, Jon Matte finds an inexhaustible source of inspiration in the mountains and landscapes of British Columbia to write the songs that will take place on the EP In Your Head which will be released in the summer of 2019. Prolific, the singer-songwriter continued in 2020 with the releases of the EPs In Your Heart and Never Look Back before returning to the album in the fall of 2021 with This Time I See It.
