Elevator is a band from Moncton, New Brunswick. Started in 1994 as Elevator To Hell, a solo outlet for Eric’s Trip lead man Rick White, the project eventually grew to include Eric’s Trip drummer Mark Gaudet and White’s wife Tara on bass. The band mainly produces hauntingly lo-fi psychedelia.
After releasing some LPs on Sub Pop, the band’s name changed to Elevator Through, and by 1999 it was shortened to simply Elevator.
In 1997 The Sadies’ Dallas Good was added as a second guitarist, though he didn’t begin recording with the band until 2002’s Darkness → Light.
Between label releases, Elevator have put out many albums on their own Great Beyond label.
