Max Jury announces self-titled debut

Max Jury announce self-titled debut album. The lead-track "Numb" will be released on March 25th via Marathon Artists.

After recent tours with Lana Del Rey and Rufus Wainwright. singer/songwriter Max Jury has announced the release his debut self-titled album. The lead-single “‘Numb”’ (available March 25th) evokes the longing to escape, a longing that took him from Iowa to London, a city that’s become a second to the young musician.

His debut album encapsulates that restlessness; recorded in New York with hip-hop producer Inflo and a crackerjack band of musicians who often play with Alicia Keys and D’Angelo and in a sleepy North Carolina town with the musical director of a small, local black church. Both places helped Max effortlessly bridge gospel and soul with his country roots.

Mark Ronson says: “”Max’s songs and musicianship conjure up so many of my favourite elements of country, soul, gospel and rock ’n’ roll. I can listen to his album on repeat. His songs are perfectly formed – bittersweet, romantic bruised, hopeful, and his voice is a thing of wonder”.

“Soul music and country might seem like different genres but strip the arrangements away and you find the same kind of songs and situations, dealing with matters of the heart,” Max says. Max weaves an intoxicating tapestry of 70’s Laurel Canyon acoustic confessionals and 21st century Neo Soul. It’s a sound of rare beauty.

““Writing is kind of my diary, the songs are all pretty autobiographical. I don’t want to make a big statement, because I don’t know what it would be. This is my music. It is what it is. I hope people like it”.”
