Singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist & music producer
“A truly talented young songwriter, singer & multi-instrumentalist”
At just 21 years old, Max Restaino has amassed a wealth of experience working with some of the biggest names in show business from Gary Barlow to Donny Osmond, LA Film Director Mark S Jacobs of Glee & Kitchen Nightmares USA and even Peter Kay on his Car Share & Phoenix Nights live projects
Max has toured all over the UK building up a steady fan base appearing as main support for Rebecca Ferguson UK Tour 2016, which included venues such as The London Palladium. In November & December 2017 Max is set to hit the road again supporting the infamous Pop band, ‘Steps,’ on their UK Arena Tour! (Tickets & Tour Dates http://max-music.co.uk/gigs/)
Last year Max finished his debut album ‘The Time It Takes’ and not only did he perform all instruments on the album himself, but wrote and produced it, with one song ‘Fall’ becoming a PRS award winning track. The song also lead to him being featured on the innovative eight week SKY TV series, ‘Tin Pan Alley.’ hosted by legendary Radio 1 DJ Mike Read. Under the foreboding shadow that is to be the end of the notorious Tin Pan Alley, Mike & his team set out to explore the history & glory of UK song writing and Max and his song became a regular on the ‘Show Biz,’ Sky channel.
More recently Max has been busy in rehearsal preparing for the ‘Party On The dance floor’ Steps Tour,’ which commences November 12th at the SSE Arena in Belfast .’ Working with his dedicated team of dancers, musicians & designers, Max is putting together a great live opening set, with a combination of live instruments & dancers bopping to some of the more serious bangers on ‘The Time It Takes’ album, such as ‘NO’ & ‘Life Is Real.’ The brand new red hot, care-free Pop single Sugar Rush, penned by the man himself, is set to top of the show
With no holding back the new song is not only set to fly out as a great mainstream, banging Pop track, but has also been lovingly re-mixed by some of the latest upcoming D.J’s from Rare Candy, Nathan Jain, and Project B to Somn3um of Dubai. With the D.J’s input they have all played their part in dropping the track in at the end of summer just in time for the Steps UK Party on the dance floor Tour.
Max’s musical influences such as Jeff Lynne (ELO) & Supertramp, are evident in his music, especially in the melodies and chords. His latest album ‘The Time It takes’ demonstrate this, but his retro influences are given a modern, club , pop production, which creates that great, unique MAX RESTAINO sound.
