Singer-songwriter / guitarist
As a guitarist and lyricist, Max has played and collaborated with a diverse range of bands and artists. Latterly he has returned to focussing on writing material and performing this acoustically, in and around London.
"My musical influences, I like to think, are wide and ever expanding. Listening to jazz recordings from 90 years ago online or watching a performance in the pub on the previous night; to hear and witness the human spirit express itself through music and song is a true pleaseure. I have slowly come to realise that it is a real love of mine and a huge part of my life."
"Sound is increasingly intimate and personal and it feels like a great time to be exploring and concocting songs that arrive at some honest deceptions about myself. I have always been particularly intrigued with the interplay between music and words. What notes surface, what words bubble up and what harmony emerges is something I find continually fascinating. Hopefully you like what I see. Hopefully I do. We'll see....."
