Matt Elliott is an English folk guitarist and singer from Bristol, England, who plays dark folk music. He also produced and recorded electronic music under the name The Third Eye Foundation.

Elliott started recording with the band Linda's Strange Vacation, which included Kate Wright (Movietone) and Rachel Brook (Movietone/Flying Saucer Attack), around the time Wright and Brook formed Movietone, and Brook and Dave Pearce formed Flying Saucer Attack. Elliott was a part time member of both bands.

He recorded Semtex, his first album under the name The Third Eye Foundation, and released it on his own record label, Linda's Strange Vacation, with the help of the fledgling Domino Records. The next three albums were released on Domino in 1997, 1998 and 2000.

As Third Eye Foundation, Elliott worked with bands including Hood, Yann Tiersen, Mogwai, Ulver, Tarwater, The Pastels, Navigator, Urchin, Suncoil Sect, Remote Viewer, Thurston Moore, primarily as a remixer. In 2001 a compilation album of his remixes was released.

In 2003 he released his first album under his own name, The Mess We Made. The next three albums were released as a trilogy on the French label, 'Ici, d'ailleurs...'.

On Yann Tiersen's 2009 tour, Elliott was support act, and later in the show was part of Yann's band onstage.
