A few years ago, at the age of 19, multi-instrumentalist & singer, songwriter and Composer, Max Restaino made a decision. After being invited by HallamFm Radio to open with a few of his own songs for their 40th Birthday bash- ‘Summer Live’ at the Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena – with an amazing line up of acts, such as Brit award winner Taio Cruz, The Vamps, Lawson, Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon, Dappy and many more, he would write, produce and perform all instruments on his own album. Max then found an agent to help promote his music and set off with his band to tour the UK supporting Rebecca Ferguson with his first stunning album, ‘The Time It Takes’
The album, which he released on his own own label, gained a concession of hits in the UK Club & Dance Charts, seeing the single ‘Sugar Rush’ hit No:10 & ‘Fire Flies’ reach No:5, as well as receiving a PRS songwriting award for his track ‘Fall, (Sky TV series Tin Pan Alley)
Whilst honing his talent, learning & working with some of the best names in the industry, such as: Gary Barlow ‘Let Me Go’ (Accordion) , Peter Kay: BV’s: Pheonix Nights & Car Share, Donny Osmond: 50th Album (Accordion) Geri Halliwell BV’s and Saxophone for Gregory Porter, Max was able to fund his own ventures. As well as appearing as a special guest on BBC & Sky TV, and countless BBC Radio shows, he toured extensively with his band to build a steady fan base. His live performances have seen him, his troupe of dancers and live band, tread the boards on some of the UK & Ireland’s most prestigious stages & music venues, and since 2016, the now 23 year old, Max has appeared as special invited guest with bands such as: Steps, Shane Filan, UB40, and more recently, Tears For Fears and Peter Andre (2019)
Flashing forward to 2020, Max’s new music, yet to be released, has evolved. Moving away from Pop, Max has taken a huge leap in artistic integrity.
Max Restaino developed his craft within the studio from an early age, while his live performance were developed upon some of the UK’s most prestigious stages. He describes himself as an all round family entertainer, but is also known within the industry and on the live circuit, as a seriously talented artist!
