Max Mezzowave / Who are you?

Max_1000pxIt’s a sunny afternoon of blue sky and white clouds and I’m sitting in a field in Max Mezzowave’s trailer listening to a Charlie Mingus vinyl album through a fine quality hi-fi and speakers, powered off-grid by a small wind rotor and two solar panels, whilst gazing out at a panoramic view of the South Downs. We’re talking generally about his musical life and times, a peripatetic 47-year journey that’s taken him from his childhood in Stoke-on-Trent to this chilled musical HQ and particularly about his latest album of what he calls ‘cinematic soul’, entitled ‘Who Are You’ – a beautiful piece of work that took almost a decade to come to fruition and received a rapturous reception at its live launch at The Foundry in Lewes at the end of October.
