NICHOLAS MAX is an American singer, songwriter, producer and actor hailing from the BRONX, NEW YORK CITY, and his first musical offering couldn’t be better timed. With male solo artists like the WEEKND and BRUNO MARS reigniting the music scene in fresh doses of electro-throwback-pop, Nicholas introduces himself with a sound that speaks for itself. Each song he pens is dressed in velvet tones that showcase a voice and range that are undeniably special. As a producer, his beats are equally as unique. From hip-hop boom bap to EDM, dancehall to trap, lo-fi to acoustic...
In a word - authenticity. Writing every song himself, it is this expression of genuine heart and soul that binds so many of his musical influences together in a way that creates a sound all his own.
GERMANO STUDIOS the HIT FACTORY, NYC. Home and birth place to countless platinum hits. From the MICHAEL JACKSON to THE ROLLING STONES. CARDI B to BEYONCE. It is here where Nicholas is lovingly crafting his debut project. However, it’s not only this legendary house that has added to the magic, but the shared talents of super producers and engineers as well.
ELVIS "BLACK ELVIS" WILLIAMS is a grammy winning producer noted for crafting hits for BEYONCE, USHER, NICKI MINAJ and CIARA among others. Elvis' production talent shines bright on Nicholas' debut solo single, "TOUCH A STAR"; a surefire club banger with an old school vibe and playful hook that may indeed stamp the song as timeless.
EVERTON "RADO" MINOTT is another producer of note who is showcased on Nicholas’ feature track, "TONIGHT"; a dancehall anthem that he collaborated on with talented hip-hop artist A.R. SKIP. Rado is a top dancehall producer out of Jamaica known for crafting hits for well known reggae artists such as MAVADO and ALKALINE. He’s also been featured by DJ KHALID.
Nicholas makes his official debut as a producer on the song, "NEW YORK". New wave and old soul bind seemlessly together over a song Nicholas describes as "an anthem to my city and a love letter to my journey and purpose".
2020 started the decade off in a powerful way with the release, "GLISTEN". Written and produced by Nicholas, "Glisten" is his first R&B offering and truly a taste of his music's timeless appeal.
Nicholas' most recent release, "LOOKING FOR LOVE", truly showcases his unique gifts and style as a singer-songwriter-producer. 808's and etheric piano punctuate a rhythmic song that is dressed in velvet vocals and a melody that you'll no doubt finding yourself humming later.
We would be amiss if we did not mention the two powerhouse engineers that are sharing their talents on Nicholas' debut project: Grammy winning mastering engineer CHRIS GEHRINGER has graced CARDI B, RIHANNA, LADY GAGA, DRAKE and many, many more iconic artists with his gifts; while 2019 Grammy award winning recording and mixing engineer MAXIME "MAX THE ENGINEER" MORIN ensures that all of the magic and integrity of each recording session is meticulously captured and ready for the masses.
It is fair to wonder why you may not have already heard of Nicholas Max when he is surrounded by and radiates such talent. Well, it is this part of his story that is perhaps the most important of all, for it is here where you will discover the driving force behind everything that he chooses to create.
Nicholas will be the first to tell you that, “within every perceived obstacle lies a hidden opportunity”. Indeed, none may know that truth better than him. This is because he had to endure an extremely difficult home life as a child growing up, which culminated in him being thrown out at the age of 14. His journey to arrive at his present success has been truly hard fought. Yet, despite the many challenges that were placed before him, he never lost sight of his childhood dream or his commitment to “Love”. It is this driving force that compels him forward: to rise up amidst the noise of a challenging world and step into pop culture as an example to those who may be less fortunate. To inspire. To show them that all dreams are possible and that there are no limits other than those that you place upon yourself.
His message simply put, "LET LOVE LEAD".
