Sheffield one man band Max Restaino not only recorded, produced and plays all the instruments on his forthcoming debut album – he’s also proving to be a big hit at songwriting.
The multi-talented 20-year-old from Sheffield is revealed this week as one of a dozen finalists on the new Tin Pan Alley TV talent show, which aims to find the country’s top new songwriters.
The Sheffield-based star is undertaking a UK schools tour, playing to more than 5,000 children.
Youngsters in Durham watched him perform, before he invited some up on stage to help him out.
Max was “discovered” by producer and songwriter Eliot Kennedy and has collaborated with Donny Osmond, Olly Murs, Geri Halliwell and comic Peter Kay.
