Bio

A musical prodigy turned one-man band, Max Frost is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who has poured his diverse influences into an eclectic, satisfying approach to pop music. Hailing from Austin, Texas, Frost was born in 1993 and began studying the guitar at a local music camp when he was ten years old. Only two years later, Frost had started playing in public, and developed a reputation as a promising blues guitarist. Before hitting his teens, Frost joined a local rock band called Joy Ride and backed young fiddler Ruby Jane Smith; later he became a member of Blues Mafia, a successful Austin blues and soul act, and worked with local roots rock hero Bob Schneider. However, while Frost was playing old-school R&B with Blues Mafia, on his own he began digging into fresher sounds, and found a mentor in Lone Star hip-hop artist Kydd Jones. Through Jones, Frost discovered the potential of electronic recording, and soon learned how to handle all the musical elements himself for a tune. In time, Frost was writing and recording songs that incorporated elements of contemporary R&B, classic soul, funk, and hip-hop with witty, understated lyrics. In 2012, just after beginning his second year at the University of Texas, Frost made a bold decision and dropped out of school to focus full-time on his music. For Frost, the gamble paid off: he issued one of his songs, a sly soul-infused number called "White Lies," as a digital single, and it quickly became a favorite with music bloggers and attracted the attention of major record labels. In August 2013, Frost signed a deal with Atlantic Records, which released a five-song EP featuring "White Lies," Low High Low, just two months later. In 2014, Frost was keeping up with touring commitments while working on a full-length album, recording in Los Angeles as well as at Wilco's personal studio the Loft in Chicago, where he collaborated on a tune with Jeff Tweedy. ~ Mark Deming
