Every so often a new artist captures both your heart and your mind straight away. Max Jury is such an artist.
This 21 year old from Des Moines, Iowa is a self-confessed Gram Parsons geek who has turned his obsession into one of the most exciting new talents since those heady days of the Byrds, the Burrito Brothers and Gram infused Rolling Stones. His songs are effortless examples of heartfelt, country tinged, beautifully sung and perfectly executed American music at its finest.
With a dog called Emmy (as in Emmylou), this former Berkeley School of Music student writes blue collar songs that perfectly suit his sterling vocals. It’s totally intoxicating – even sober. Ignore this at your peril.
