"An arresting collection of songs by a musician who's proven himself to be far more than just an engaging sideman. He's an emerging Michigan star in his own right."
Songwriter, vocalist, and poet Max Lockwood channels the flair of Tom Petty and the eloquence of the Beat Generation’s finest to create a sound rooted in songcraft and heartfelt lyricism and bound with elements of rock and roll, folk and pop. With full arrangements and rich poetic focus, the listener is led into a deep sonic landscape by songs that seek to uncover truths of love, adversity, and growth.

The first note Max Lockwood sings has the undeniable ability to capture the attention of any crowd. His powerful voice, akin to the likes of Tom Petty or Bruce Springsteen, grips listeners with its raw emotion and sheer possibility. With each song, a story is told with rich, vulnerable tones and unbridled emotions.

As a fan of many musical genres, Max’s record reflects his favorite elements of classic rock, pop, and folk. The intertwined essences bring a thoughtful and fresh new take on the singer-songwriter genre.
