Max Jury Added To The BBC Radio 2 Playlist
Max Jury’s latest single, The Love That Grows Old, has been added to the BBC Radio 2 playlist. The song is taken from Jury’s self-titled debut album which was released on the 3rd June.
The debut album harks back to a golden age of Americana, Soul, Country, Gospel and Blues, whilst stepping boldly into the future driven by his incredible voice. This retrograde futurism has drawn him comparisons to artists new and old, from Gram Parsons to Tobias Jesso Jr, and has taken him from top-notch studios in New York and London, recording 4 songs with hip-hop producer Inflo (Michael Kiwanuka, Tom Odell) and a band of musicians who play with Adele, Alicia Keys and D’Angelo, to the sleepy and rural settings of North Carolina, where he finished the remainder of the album with a band of bona-fide gospel players in an intimate home studio. Max describes songwriting as a kind of diary, and on this impressive debut he weaves an intoxicating tapestry of 70s Laurel Canyon acoustic confessionals and 21st century Neo-Soul, breathed out in a whisper of breathless emotion.
