So I know I’ve been seriously lacking with the music portion of the blog, (I have been so sidetracked by my baking obsession lately!) but I found some much-needed motivation after coming across an artist named Max Frost.
I first came across his song ‘White Lies’ a few months ago on the ‘May 2013 Playlist’ from the Indie Rock Playlist. If you haven’t heard of the Indie Rock Playlist – they release epic playlists monthly that consist of really cool indie rock/pop/electronic songs by up-and-coming artists, and also some more mainstream bands. If you are a fan of indie music, definitely check it out. I’ve found out about a lot of good songs and bands from there.
White Lies was the song that really stood out for me and I’ve probably listened to it a good hundred times since then. The song is so catchy, its got a killer melody but the lyrics are what gets me. Sooo good.
I just thought to look up the artist the other day to try to find out more info and I’m glad I did! There’s not too much info online about him yet but I’m sure that’s going to change very soon… Max Frost is definitely an artist to watch. So much talent.
I’m not sure how I would classify his music – mix of soul, hip hop, feel-good, alt, blues, funk, fresh, rock. Normally the greatest artists have a wide range of influences which translates into their music and I believe Max is one of them.
If you were to take the greatest bits and pieces from each genre of music and blend it all together to create this unique new sound – that’s how I would describe his music.
Catchy, unique, feel-good tunes.
So from what I could gather, I found out that he’s a Singer/Songwriter/Producer & Multi-Instrumentalist (Max played all the instruments on every track he’s recorded so far) from Austin, TX.
He’s only 21 years old (crazy!), and has been playing gigs for almost a decade already.
He just signed to Atlantic Records and is releasing an EP later this year so look out for that! I’m so excited to hear the EP – I’m sure he’s going to be topping the charts soon and doing big things.
Check out another great track by Max titled My Walk :
(this has been my jam the past few days – i listened to it while running today, and literally couldn’t stop smiling at everyone i passed haha. instant mood-booster)
