Info for This Time I See It



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.

The Franklin Electric



The Franklin Electric
Montreal-based alternative folk-pop band The Franklin Electric turned heads in 2012, claiming first prize in a Nashville song writing competition with the infectious song, “Old Piano”. The group then banded together to lay down their debut album "This is How I Let You Down". The band includes Jon Matte on vocals / piano / trumpet, Liam Killen on the drums & vocals, Martin Desrosby on the bass, and Alexis Messier on guitars.

A flash of blue across the night sky. Electricity: it is life itself. The spark that fires the brain, the heart, the imagination. The spark that fires Jon Matte and The Franklin Electric. After their breakthrough single "This Is How I Let You Down", the Montreal band returns with a highly anticipated second album, Blue Ceilings, with music that’s ready to light up the night.

After entering and winning a Nashville songwriting competition over 8000 other bands from around the world, opening slots would follow: Ben Howard, Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, City & Colour, Half Moon Run. "Bonds are built, and when you tour, it all fuses together.” Matte says. The driving force of a singer-songwriter becomes a brotherhood of the road. Having found their tribe, they’d spend 2015 playing over 180 shows from Canada to Australia – three tours of Europe alone – with reviews ecstatic across the board.

Critics and fans were responding to Matte’s voice and his intuitive, compelling songwriting, but also to the singular, standout sound of an instrument still uncommon in pop: the trumpet. “Yeah, the horn’s always going to be a secret weapon,” Matte says, smiling. “Something I can pull out and people go ‘WTF’? To me it’s always been an anthemic instrument – it’s a battle call.”

The Franklin Electric steps up to the next level with Blue Ceilings: music that casts a spell, on a human scale. A mature, fully-formed sound that embraces the riddles of life and love. It is the human element. The spark. The drive is bigger than ever. The Franklin Electric and Blue Ceilings: lightning strikes, again.

This album contains no booklet.
