About Max Minardi...
Max Minardi is an internationally traveled singer-songwriter based in Northern California who has performed across the Western United States since 2012 playing an average of 150 shows every year. Blending influences from artists like Paul Simon, Iron & Wine, James Taylor, Ben Howard, and Ray Lamontagne, his songs focus on evocative lyricism and enchanting acoustic guitar work with origins in American Folk, Indie, and Roots music. Onstage, he engages audiences by telling stories of his time on the road and unveiling the inspiration and experiences that lead to his songs.
2016 saw the release of Minardi's first full-length studio album entitled "Stronger Than the Earth." 'Stronger Than the Earth' explores themes of love, growing up, and growing old and channels a momentum and energy which carries its listeners gracefully from the harmony-heavy and horn-laden opener 'Can't Let Go' through the final moments of its pensive closing track 'Castle Walls.'"
After an international tour of England in the winter of 2017, Minardi came back to the States to begin work on his 6 track EP "Stories" which was released in February of 2018. - Stories - has been called "Hauntingly Uplifting Americana" featuring songs like I'll Be Mine, "one of the most blissful duets since Glenn Hansard & Marketa Irglova" (A&R Factory) and Young & Green, "a folk-pop raver that conjures images of Northern California life (Chico News and Review).
