Australian singer-songwriter MAXON is currently shaking audiences with her trademark vocal and boundless song-writing talents. Her writing is stylistic of a diary entry; clandestine and forthright. Such confessional writing is bound to a vulnerable stage presence and a voice soaked in command, as MAXON’s audiences witness the tale of the gifted singer and her battle through the trials and tribulations of love and its conditions.
A gifted and versatile artist, MAXON burst onto the Melbourne music scene with her own brand of raw, emotionally-driven pop songs and a dynamic vocal range that earned her comparisons to the likes of Meg Mac and Hannah Reid (London Grammar). MAXON has been embraced by the Melbourne music community after playing iconic venues such as The Toff in Town, The Thornbury Theatre, The Workers Club, Memo Music Hall, The Hotel Esplanade and many more.
Her career has seen her perform alongside some of Australia's favourite artists and songwriters including Alex Lahey, Angie McMahon, Kerryn Fields, Eilish Gilligan, Ella Hooper (at MOTH International Women's Day), Kylie Auldist and many more. MAXON has also been involved in showcasing the Mornington Peninsula’s finest in the Music Victoria Music Crawl, St Kilda Festival’s LivenLocal with Hachiku, and two packed shows with the If You See Her Say Hello choir at The Toff in Town, presented by Melbourne Fringe Festival.
With the return of live music MAXON has played sold out shows across regional Victoria, performing in the Keep the Circle Unbroken Tour alongside Delsinki, Mick Thomas, Jeff Consi (The Badloves), Paul Waseen (The Screaming Jets) and many more great household names. MAXON has also been a feature artist at Brunswick's new hub for emerging artists, Small Time (2021).
This year MAXON has featured at Port Fairy Folk Festival, and played a sold out headline show at The Shed Theatre at The Pig & Whistle in Main Ridge as part of her East Coast Tour with NSW-based artist Dani El-Rassi.
MAXON's latest single, 'Best Shot', is for the thirty-somethings that constantly battle the feeling of time fleeting. A conversation with the bully inside her head, Maxon battles these thoughts head on in this track. Produced by Jono Steer (Gretta Ray, Angie McMahon, Ainslie Wills), this sophisticated pop track is drenched with powerful vocals and thought-provoking lyrics.
Currently tucked away, MAXON is writing material for what will be her debut album.
