MAX GARCIA CONOVER
Max García Conover is a songwriter & one-man band based in Maine (USA). In 2015 he had an ambitious idea: write one song a week during one year. He bought an old motorhome, put his guitar and a notebook in it and traveled around the US with his wife and their dog. The ambitious plan turned out to be a realistic one: every week a new song was scribbled in the notebook. By mid-2016, Max had written more than sixty songs. The motorhome didn’t make it as long, and Max had to find other ways to travel. One of his journeys led him to Barcelona (Spain), where he played a show for us. After a night of cold drinks and good conversation we ended up signing a record deal with a handshake and a toast to new friendship. The songs were taken off the road and recorded in the quiet of Max Garcia Conover’s home in Portland (Maine, USA) in the winter of 2016. The album “Motorhome” is a selection of 12 weekly songs, one for each month.
“A twelve-song masterpiece (…) One of the strongest albums I listened to in 2017.”
“Gorgeous stuff. Conover is a hell of a fingerstyle guitarist and he has an arresting vocal style, with a ton of presence.”
“Engaging, breathtaking, each work on this folk masterpiece is chilling. Max García Conover is a composer of great talent; his songs are unmistakably appealing.”
“His images pour out like Dylan Thomas or James Joyce, like impressionistic paintings, full of feelings.”
“Conover has a warm, unique voice, and his lyrics tell stories in literary ways that make people care.”
