About Max Swan
A native of the Philadelphia area, Max Swan’s earliest forays into music revolved around jazz. Max is a classically-trained saxophonist who has studied under Saturday Night Live band leader Lenny Pickett, and has emerged as an accomplished vocalist and hip hop producer. Max’s unique skillset – coupled with his innate ability to break genre boundaries – has resulted in a distinctive “electrosoul” sound that blends the musicality and improvisational spirit of jazz with elements of 21st Century soul, harmony-rich R&B, and contemporary hip hop.
Max’s 2018 album, The Fisherman, was made possible with a grant from The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts (Philadelphia, PA). Throughout his career, Max has opened for renowned touring acts, including Phillip Phillips, Louis Cole, and Bilal; and has been a featured performer at notable events throughout the Philadelphia region. These include SXSW Amplify Philly, Councilman David Oh's PHLive Center Stage Music Conference, Ernest Stuart's Center City Jazz Festival, and Musikfest.
As an artist and producer, Max has collaborated across genres with a growing number of versatile recording artists, including Aime, Jacqueline Constance, The Bul Bey, Mic Stewart, and Alita Moses.
