Tell us a little bit about this new album of yours?

I wrote this project as an experiment in being 100% pure to who I am as a writer and an artist. I wanted my imagination to pick up on whatever hit my fancy in the moment. I also played every song either on my piano & synth,...

You appear on the new Philippa Hanna album Speed Of Light, what was it like working with the British singer?

Philippa is a wonderfully sweet and genuine person. I met her a couple years back, and I’m not sure how.. haha.. but we have kept up. She had written with me at EMI for this album that she was doing and honestly, I never though it would be cut or I would see her again. Then she called me up and had me over to a studio in Franklin and we sang the song together. It was a great time and I really appreciate her sense of melody and her vocal style.

You're stuck on an island, it's hot, you only have enough battery life left to listen to one of your favorites album of all time on your mp3 player. What is it?

I would probably have to say ‘Last Night I Dreamt Somebody Loved Me’ by The Smiths. I could listen to that for quite some time... and I have.

What does the next year hold for Kevin Max?

Well 2016 is already quite busy... writing this album and now releasing it and trying to sell it and market it on my own, I have my work cut out for me. I am already dreaming of the next project of course, but I am trying to get a handle on how to be a good businessman as well. The really exciting thing currently is that we are in the middle of a move. It isn’t totally finalized yet, but we have sold our home in Franklin and we are moving out further into the country. I am buying a farm… literally. I grew up on a farm, and I find myself the happiest when I am out in the great wide open. However, I am wanting to use the property as a place for people to retreat, relax and record... call it the Triple R ranch... or to be specific, ‘Blind Thief Farm.’ It has a built in studio, and am getting ready to embark on building a state of the art demo studio so that I can create music whenever the whim hits me, which is literally all of the time.

Kevin Max - Playing Games With The Shadow

It has been said many times before that Kevin Max has one of the most distinctive vocals in music. It was one of the main reasons why DC Talk worked so well and were so loved as a three piece. What DC Talk had was three very…
