A perfect marriage of vivid and pop-inspired hooks, progressive composition, and modern technicality, MAXI CURNOW hits hard and immediately captivates, embracing everything from sweeping cinematics to planet-shaking carnage. Crafted with the help of producer George Lever (Loathe, Sleep Token), his new material delivers a consistent string of melodic earworms, nailgun riffs, and impassioned vocals that beckon the listener into a state of total immersion.
MAXI CURNOW has previously composed music that is published by the BBC and Universal Production Music,and his work has been used across a wealth of shows, channels, and services, including Louis Theroux, Sky Sports, Jay Z V Kanye, Netflix and Channel 4. He’s also collaborated with a wide range of prolific musicians and producers on his music, from Forrester Savell (Karnivool, SikTh, Animals As Leaders, Twelve Foot Ninja) to Mike Malyan (Monuments, Disperse, The Algorithm) Rabea Massaad (Toska, Dorje), Dave Hollingworth (Toska, Dorje) Toby Peterson-Stewart (The Omnific), Doug Harper (Rick Astley, Gary Barlow, Book of Mormon), Acle Kahney (TesseracT), Luke Martin (Plini) and many more.
With a long list of first-hand experiences alongside so many musical greats, MAXI CURNOW‘s diverse background inspired him to embark on a raw and visceral dive into storytelling, focused on the process of recovery from traumatic events. Each honest, heavy, and heartfelt song draws upon his most formative experiences – including his work as a firefighter and the events he witnessed in the line of duty.
From 2014’s 25-minute odyssey ‘Stem’ (during which no single section is repeated), to the hard-hitting video for his 2015 single ‘If We Make It’, and 2016’s widely respected LP Transition, MAXI CURNOW‘s compositional, technical, emotional, and in-studio skills have combined to create an all-encompassing experience, a synergy between intelligent messages, precisely chosen tones, and impactful visuals.
Following the global online success of ‘Far Gone’, a collaboration with YouTube guitar guru Rabea Massaad (Toska, Dorje), MAXI CURNOW has proven himself ready to emerge onto the global stage. ‘Tar & Honey’ finds him fully prepared to step once more into the spotlight as a solo artist, to find out what the future has in store.
