Maks

MAKS is a rock project from the Netherlands formed around drummer/singer/songwriter, Maks A.

At the moment Maks A. has just finished his first CD "3Ft No Diving". He was assisted by a number of fellow artists, such as guitar player, musical sparring partner and long-time friend Peter Barnouw, dutch guitar hero Jeroen van Tuijl and Kentucky based guitar virtuoso Tommy Stillwell

In 2013 Maks A. spent 4 weeks being the stand-in drummer with the dutch rock band JVT Band. They toured the USA from the Upper Peninsula to Memphis. Musically, this trip opened his eyes and made him decide to record his own songs.

Maks A. was heavily influenced by 1980’s new wave bands such as Magazine, Echo and the Bunnymen, Ultravox and Gary Numan. He describes his musical style being a mix of the music of this period and the music he came to appreciate in a later stage of life: blues- and country-rock. To be precise, artists such as John Mellencamp, the Black Crowes and -very recently- the Black Keys bear Maks’ Seal Of Approval :)

Maks A. will be back in the recording studio again to start recording the tracks for his second full length album. He hopes his activities will launch a career in the music business :)
