Maxwell Young is a singer/songwriter/producer from Wellington, New Zealand. His music began getting attention when his boom bap beats inspired by College Dropout era Kanye instrumentals were featured on a selection of successful YouTuber Casey Neistat’s videos. He posted a demo on SoundCloud one day titled Right Here on a whim that ended up being his most popular song. The success of Right Here encouraged him to work on singing and songwriting more. He released an EP of more songs from this period titled Shades as well as a collection of the beats called Spark. After he developed his songwriting while finishing high school which resulted in his first real release of an album ‘Daydreamer’ on which his voice was considerably more realised musically than any of his previous music. He’s now working on his next record. Everything Maxwell makes is done entirely by him in his bedroom at this stage.
