Max Jury – Upcoming In-Stores
In support of his debut self titled album and whilst on tour, Max Jury will be performing several in-stores across the country. First up, Max plays an acoustic set at Rough Trade Nottingham on May 27 from 6pm,
this will be followed on the 30th May with an in-store at FOPP in Glasgow (1pm) and finally, on Monday 6th June, Max will be live in-store at Rough Trade East from 7pm.
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.
