Kevin Max is the musical equivalent of abstract art. As if his intense vibrato was not enough to set him apart from other artists, Kevin's lyrics are vague and symbolic, essentially poems set to music, and the music itself does not conform to any fixed genre. Like abstract art, he is difficult to understand and easy to dismiss as strange. However, it is this individuality, as his fans are quick to relate, that draws people to his music. Three years after the release of his solo debut, Stereotype Be, KMAX has suddenly reappeared on the American music scene with an exciting new EP.
I arrived with my wife and two of my closest friends at the Larsen Student Union on Grantham, PA's Messiah College campus around 7:45 PM. Grantham is close to the busy lifestyle of the "big" city of Harrisburg but it's a quiet country town where one can get away from it all.
