Maximilian Eubank

Hailing from Des Moines, Iowa, Maximilian Eubank writes a cross genre of Acoustic music, blending sounds with a sense of Folk, Folk Rock, Anti-Folk, Acoustic Rock and Acoustic Alternative sensibility. With a commitment to melodies that are interesting and infectious, Maximilian embarked upon his musical passions at the tender age of fourteen. He ignited an Acoustic guitar band, Triple Vision, writing and creating the majority of the music and lyrics that comprised the trio's sound. In a few years Triple Vision turned into a larger band, Euforia, of which he was the lead singer and rhythm guitar. These experiences led Maximilian to eventually moving to Colorado and defining his voice as a singer/songwriter on the music circuit. Maximilian's lyrics and records tend to reflect an introspective point of view regarding lost and found love, systematic injustice, faith and the everyday hardships that effect life. In 2008, Maximilian compiled his years of experience into independently recording his debut LP, 10:00 in the Afternoon. The album spawned the success of quite a few standout singles. Maximilian has been heavily influenced by such industry greats who include Martin Sexton, James Taylor, Chris Cornel, Bradley Nowell, Donavon Frankewreiter, Kalai, Newton Faulkner, Bob Marley, Todd Schaeffer, Paul Simon and many more. These inspirations can be heard within the melodic illustration of sound that creates some of Maximilian's most popular singles, Not Make Believe and Concrete.

All of Maximilian’s music is saturated in lyrical metaphors that are therapeutic, suggesting that everyone in the world is indirectly affected by the same modes of emotion. Maximilian creates songs that evoke a strong sense of passion in his listeners. He considers his compositions “Contemplative Musical Communication to the Masses”. Maximilian's music ties humanity in union, as his abstract lyrics also reveal the idea of sharing our experiences and taking them into the world; living connected, instead of living as individuals fighting for all of our material wants and needs. Maximilian has delivered his messages by performing center stage at various coffee house, bar and concert venues across Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Omaha, Iowa City, Cedar Rapids and Des Moines. In addition to his powerful vocals and lyrics he incorporates his loop station to add depth to his guitar skills playing fills and solos on top of his rhythm guitar. He recently was awarded Des Moines' City View’s 2010 Best Local Musician. Standby is Maximilan’s newest musical collection from 2009 and is an EP that successfully exemplifies his range as an acoustic musician. He will be finishing his third album, Burping Out With Blasphemy, by the end of 2010. Maximilian Eubank plans to continue creating music that will forge his career into a time and space where he will be able to live his life as an honest musician, all while reinventing the manufactured sound of mainstream, American music.
