He covered Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry and Turn Your Lights Down Low gaining him an impressive new fanbase. Since X-Factor, Max been perfecting his debut album, influenced by his unstoppable love of reggae music.
Max recently performed alongside Jimmy Cliff, Ali Campbell, Ernest Ranglin, Sly and Roobie, Suggs and Dawn Penn as the only unsigned artist at “A Night of Reggae” for Save the Childen. You can hear for yourself that Max is an amazing talent, by checking out hisReload Sessions performance.
Last year, Max was invited to Jamaica to work with Grammy Award winning reggae producer Jazzwad. He then teamed up with D Goodyand Ce’Cile who added her own middle eight on “Never Been Loved”.Ce’Cile (international reggae star who has worked with Sean Paul, Gavin Rossdale and Debbie Nova) has had multiple hits in the UK single charts.
“Never Been Loved is a track about being enamoured with someone and wanting to share every side of yourself so they can know how it feels to be loved. Ce’Cile has added her raw Dancehall/ Reggae talent incorporating her own melodies and style into the story.”
Max’s upcoming album Keep Risingshares a powerful statement about love, war and all things in between. The album is due for release later this year.
