A Nod to Dylan

Upon the left arm of Canadian songman Gabriel Hélie­Harvey you will find the initials R.Z. They are the initials of Robert Zimmerman, the birth name of Bob Dylan. He has read several Dylan biographies, and has assumed his own pseudonym, Elliot Maginot.

Short-­lived garaged bands consumed his life for a time, but it was the guitar where Maginot found a great comfort. Once that discovery was made, he went through what he describes as a “hermit period” as he bonded with his instrument. His debut album is Young/Old/Everything.In.Between.

Join him at the Quicksilver Room, Torquay on February 5 & The Karova, Ballarat on February 6.
