1997, Max had his first EP release ''Seize The Moment'' which received national airplay on Triple J. Featured on this album was the catchy, infectious song ''Happy'' which, if the appropriate marketing and advertising had been an available option it could well have been a hit single. ''Happy'', is still a favourite amongst his loyal legion of fans and Max has performed this on ''am Adelaide'', a local morning show. ''Seize The Moment'' received fantastic reviews from various prestigious music magazines, a huge accomplishment for the then young, aspiring, 24 year old singer/song writer.
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''
Ondit Magazine wrote - ''Who can resist the infectiously cute lyrics of ''Happy''
dB Magazine wrote - ''In a perfect world Max would be another Liam Gallagaher or Damon Albarn''
In late 1997, Max joined a band by the name of ''Kaotic Lounge'' who, were successful in winning the Triple M Battle of Rock people''s choice award. They played the usual Adelaide haunts, The Exeter, The Austral and what was then known as Madlove.
In the year 2000, Max joined ''The Beatals'', in some states known also as ''The Fab Four'', now renowned as one of the world''s leading Beatles cover bands. They are regular, honoured, invited guests at the prestigious Beatlefest in Liverpool having performed before the inimitable Liverpool crowd at the world famous Cavern Club
It must be every musician''s dream to record in studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios in London, a shrine in the music world. Max''s talents have earned him this accolade on two occasions, firstly in August 2001 when the 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''. Max has actually now ''done it twice'' in Abbey Road, the second time in August 2003 when the band played and recorded a 1 hour live gig on the hallowed ground of studio 2.
With The Beatals/Fab Four, Max has had the honour to perform alongside the distinguished Australian Philharmonic Orchestra in such influential venues to include, Sydney Opera House, Melbourne Concert Hall, Burswood Theatre in WA and the Adelaide Entertainment Centre
In 2002, Max began writing additional material in preparation for the release of a new and exciting original album. With his creative juices flowing and his mind in overdrive he rapidly accumulated an abundance of Max original material. With the songs beginning to pile up in his head and ultimately on his lounge room floor, he purchased a small home studio in an effort to preserve his artistic inspiration. Setting about the task of putting bass, guitar and vocal tracks to tape he was able to unleash his overabundance of creativity and preserve it until such time it can be produced as an album for all to enjoy
Now, listening to his latest release, there is an extremely melodic and hypnotic feel to some of the songs, but Max is anxious to maintain his ever changing lust for music without losing the melodic punch. ''To All My Friends'' has an alternative sound with big harmonies in the chorus, whilst ''What Yer Doin?'' has an infectious guitar riff. ''Come To Me'' is very acoustic based with pining lyrics and an almost flamenco guitar solo. ''Beautiful'' is a bit more up beat and has the driving guitars and screaming vocals towards the end and ''Accept The Way I Am'' has a kooky lead guitar break and a totally vocal middle section. This latest release clearly demonstrates an immensely versatile collection of musical styles, so outstandingly performed by an infinitely talented individual.
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.
2003 was a good year for Max, successful in performing much of his original material at Adelaide haunts to a loyal and ever growing fan base. This has continued in 2004, he is playing to packed venues and enthusiastic audiences, all demanding to hear those unique Max originals.
2005 saw the release of ‘Leaving Bloomfield Ave’ and Max’s departure for Darwin. The album sold extremely well and songs like Happy, Coffee Cup, You’re the one for me and Make love like you’re being filmed still feature regularly at solo gigs. You will even hear the audience singing most of the words. Max was also one of the support acts for The Violent Femmes in March of this year…
In 2006, Max was added to a worldwide line up on a charity cd for Beatles and beyond. The album, ‘Yeah, Yeah, Yeah’ has sold tremendously and continues to support land mine victims.
…right now Max is flat out working eight shows per week and writing more material and is looking to have another album released very soon!
