Bio

Like many a great musician, Max's love of music is inherited from his father who, during his childhood, played in a band in Western Australia. Max, being exposed to the live music scene since the age of 3 has music in his veins and loves nothing better than performing in front of a live audience. Rip It Up Magazine wrote - 'give the lad heavyweight management and major label support and songs like 'Happy' and 'Worse Off Now' would probably become just as over-played and irritatingly etched on your brain as yer average Oasis number' In 2003, Max entered Musicoz, as you are aware, this is Australia’s largest music awards competition for unsigned artists. His song ‘Beautiful’ earned him a place in the top 100, just missing out on a top 50 placement, reaching number 51 in the alternative section. A tremendous outstanding achievement for a first time entrant, competing with over 6,000 talented, enthusiastic musicians, all anxious for success and recognition. On two occasions, Max went to Abbey Road Studios. Firstly in August 2001 when his band recorded one of his original songs 'Is It Over?' as part of a compilation album titled, 'Why Don't We Do It In Abbey Road' and the second time as a performer. On both occasions it was in the hallowed studio 2 where The Beatles recorded many of their huge hits. A re-mastered version of the 2005 album, Leaving Bloomfield Ave is to be released July 2007 and a new release is due out in September. He is Still writing alot of songs and is continuing to rope in a loyal legion of fans whenever he performs.

The smoothness of the vocals in this tune... so mesmerizing and effortless. The instrumental sounds like flamenco meeting reggae which is really funky and different. This artist is oozing talent and originality, keep it coming!!
