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 help create that great, unique MAX RESTAINO sound.
