We have covered the music of Max García Conover before. He is a gifted lyricist and accomplished performer who has shared the stage with Cat Power, Justin Townes Earle, The Weather Station and many others. In between songs he likes to tell stories, and his storytelling has been featured on The Moth Radio Hour and Stories From The Stage.
Max grew up in Bemus Point, New York and started writing songs in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Conover's latest single "Handsome Suit" is a combination of personal narrative and observational symbolism, as he paints detail-rich, layered studies of American life with a gritty voice and a plaintive, folk-flavored musical style. His combination of bittersweet half-memory and bold, broad-stroke allegory creates a template for self-reflection as he, line by line, hooks his audience with a theme of unadorned melancholy and redemptive truth. Max García Conover offers us the musical cover to pass through our own, troubled mortality into an effortless world of infinite acceptance.
