Kevin Max, best known as the enigmatic member of the
band dcTalk
(EMI CMG), has found the courage and freedom to take
another step outside the box to create an album for the world stage that
is innovative, provocative, and entertaining.

In the fall of 2005, Kevin Max will release the highly anticipated album
titled The Imposter on Northern Records. Produced by Andrew D. Prickett
(The Violet Burning, Holly Nelson, and The Lassie Foundation) and Kevin
Max, The Imposter contains a sound that recalls the passion of early
U2, the soul of Jeff Buckley, and the ambiguity of Blur.  It sonically
rivals the larger-than-life persona of Kevin Max himself while it
reveals his most humble and transparent songwriting to date, lyrically
exploring the influences of Brennan Manning and Bob Dylan.  There are
songs of love and faith and doubt and fear in a variety of authentic
musical expressions.  They range from pop to fusion, but the album
maintains a consistent rock influence throughout.  The lyrical theme is
imperfection and often touches on the disparity between what we want
others to see and who we really are inside.

After relocating to Los Angeles from Nashville, Kevin Max signed with
Northern Records and CAA in Beverly Hills and since has been in sessions
with an impressive list of writers and producers.  Although the writing for
this record was more personal in nature and Kevin ultimately collaborated
largely with producer and co-writer Andrew D. Prickett on the new record,
part of the perspective gained in the preparation for this record included
work with Mark Hudson (Aerosmith), Van Dyke Parks (Brian Wilson),
Dominic Miller (Sting), Warren Cuccurullo (Missing Persons & Duran
Duran), and Nick Rhodes (Duran Duran).

As one-third of dcTalk, Kevin Max has sold over 8 million records worldwide,
won four Grammy Awards, and had a Top 40 pop hit with “Just Between You
and Me” (Virgin), which also received significant airplay on VH1 and MTV. 
The Imposter, the long-awaited follow-up to his first solo album,
Stereotype Be (Forefront/EMI CMG), comes on the heels of an EP that was
recently made available independently called “Between the Fence and the
Universe” which marks the path from Stereotype Be to The Imposter.  In
addition, Kevin Max has also published two books of poetry as well as a
poetry album that includes accompaniment by Adrian Belew (King
Crimson).  Kevin has been actively performing live, including shows
with the Psychedelic Furs, The Young Dubliners, The Church, and Rich
Robinson of The Black Crowes, as well as a recent tour of Europe and
shows in South America and New Zealand.
