Producer and singer songwriter Max Restaino hails from Sheffield UK and also spends much of his time working in London. Alongside his beautifully smooth voice, Max plays a wide range of instruments that include the saxophone, guitar, piano, harmonica, accordion and ukulele. His introduction to music came when aged 5 he found an Italian folk accordion that was initially purchased for his brother and began playing it. By the time he was 9, he was performing live on BBC TV ( Look North News) BBC Radio, and on stage, where along with all the cast of Nikolai Foster’s production of Assassin’s, he picked up a nomination for a Tony Award for his part as Billy at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.
In 2017 Max went on to receive a songwriting Award from PRS for his Song Fall that featured on the SKY TV program, Tin Pan Alley. Two songs from the album, The Time It Takes gained a concession of hits in the UK’s Club & Dance Charts, seeing the single ‘Sugar Rush’ reach No 10 & ‘Fire Flies’ No:5
As a session player on accordion, sax and vocals, Max has worked for artists such as Gary Barlow & Donny Osmond and even the Uk’s most beloved comedian MR Peter Kay for his Phoenix Nights Live Show & hit BBC1 TV series Car Share.
Live on stage the multi instrumentalist switches between guitar, piano and saxophone and with his own 3 piece band has appeared as special invited guest for major artists such as Peter Andre, Tears For Fears, Steps, Rebecca Ferguson, UB40 and Shane Filan.
According to The Yorkshire Times, “Given a bit of luck Max deserves to be headlining his own tour. His popularity can only get bigger.”
