Still working on that hot first release.



If coming to live one's personal passion can be called a journey, then Max Watson's music resonates with every step he has taken along his personal, musical path.

Beginning a formally trained guitar student by the late, and legendary Frank Mullen in the disciplines of jazz and classical guitar, Max Watson's poetic and evocative lyrics are supported by guitar stylings appreciated by both instrumentalists, and listeners alike.

Max doesn't just tell stories with his music, he has been called a "word-smith" by those who still retain a love for language. Max sculpts musical poetry, selecting words, not as one who writes, but as one who curates. His lyrical motifs are thoughtfully layered, and intertwined in the manner of a painter laying colors on a canvas. His songs are a molding of imagery, and turn-of-phrase, unique in ways that invite every listener into the song-space, while allowing each person room for her or his own interpretation.

Max easily moves from simple three-chord, folk-style tunes into styles more reminiscent of the standards of old. He can move from the darker corners of the color palate with droning melancholy, only to revive the listener with lyrics that elevate the heart without empty platitudes, or trite cliches.

Max Watson's music is a delight to the listener, regardless of age, gender, musical preference, or any other barrier we use try to identify ourselves to others through musical choice. Adding his tracks to your music library will never be disappointing.  

Max Watson has released two CDs and is currently involved in a number of different projects from new recording, to new video projects, and composing original music to be used in films and documentaries that are in production. You can find Max Watson's music on all streaming services, and at
