Max Allen Band (MAB) is the brainchild and workhorse of singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer Max Allen. Performing professionally since the age of 16, Allen got his start by selling home recordings out of a lunchbox at school, later making waves as an upcoming blues guitar prodigy. Some thirteen years later, he has grown into a seasoned performer and composer whose tastes have evolved to include the very best of funk, rock, blues, pop, jazz, reggae, classical, EDM and hip-hop. For over a decade, Allen and MAB have kept audiences all over the country coming back for more of the wide variety of genres, incredible musicianship, thoughtful lyrics and contagious melodies that each show brings. Max Allen has six studio albums and thousands of performances to his credit, and he is still going strong.

Armed with a newly solidified lineup that features more talent than ever before, Max Allen Band is proud to present its 2013 release, Everyone Thinks You’re Weird. The album features many new territories for the band, from bassist Dace Robie’s lush string quartet arrangements to drummer Shaan France’s layered percussion to Max Allen’s most sophisticated and exciting solo work to date. ETYW also features additional keys and synths from composer/producer Gary Mielke and vocals by Midwest hip-hop favorite Rusty Redenbacher.

Another exciting new feature of ETYW is the songwriting team that is Allen and Robie, whose diverse backgrounds and tastes complement each other wonderfully. The album creates a journey through contrasts: light to dark, catchy to complex, and old school to fresh and new. Max Allen keeps listeners guessing with a recording that features everything from pop to progressive rock to dubstep to calypso and more, all the while bringing out Max Allen’s signature vocal and guitar sound. ETYW is the culmination of a rich musical past for MAB and marks the beginning of a bright new era of music making for the band.

They call our city Nap because it’s the most slept-on city in America.

This is Native Sun’s answer to the question of how Indianapolis came to be nicknamed Nap Town. All too often, Indy locals lose faith in the spirit of their city and insist it’s named so because it’s a sleepy metropolis in the Midwest with nothing to do or see. This cultural crippling has subdued the drive to create in much of the city’s talent by bogging down artists with despair and leaving them with little hope for a chance to gain national recognition.

But the native sons of Native Sun have a different outlook on their city of Nap. It is their belief that Indianapolis harbors a wealth of talent, particularly in the vein of hip hop. Leading by example, the band envisions that traditional hip hop elements (compelling lyricism, dusty samples, dope beats) paired with the versatility of live instrumentation has the potential to create music that sounds like nothing before it.

Leveraging more than 20 years of combined experience as professional musicians and performers, B Meeks (bass), Sleepy (drums) and B Young (emcee) began to intertwine their musical backgrounds within the context of hip hop when Native Sun formed in 2008. The resourceful musicians draw from their familiarity in gospel, rock, electronic, jazz and soul, creating music that sounds much bigger than what one would expect from a 3 piece act. It is this solid foundation in live music (as compared to produced beats) that sets Native Sun apart from other hip hop groups.

Through their vision to be an example of success to artists in Indianapolis and similar places, Native Sun has earned a reputation as a first call backing band in the Indianapolis hip hop scene. They’ve had the honor of performing with Elzhi of Slum Village and DJ Logic, as well as opening for Foreign Exchange, Musiq Soulchild, Mayer Hawthorne, Black Milk and Muhsinah. After putting in more than 30 hours of grinding in the studio, Native Sun released its full-length debut album, Step Into The Light in August of 2012. Continuing to further push their creative limits, the band looks forward to releasing, The Undeniable EP and subsequent tour to follow in the Spring and Summer of 2014.
