It is vividly apparent, that Maxi will one day dwell amongst the musical stars. Named Maxi by her late father, he believed that this name was well suited to grace concert marquees across the world. However, not even he could have imagined that this young woman would grow to have a voice that would bring many to their feet with applause, and echoes of praise and cheers! As a professional songstress and a lover of all music styles, Maxi is no stranger to great singing, songwriting, and producers. Her angelic harmonies ascend on high with effortless ease, and are both bone-chilling and powerful. Passionately exemplified with style and grace, her mood evoking melodies, smooth buttery tones, impeccable timing, and unpredictable phrasing, have moved her audiences to compare this young lady to legendary singers such as, PHYLLIS HYMAN, TEENA MARIE, WHITNEY HOUSTON and PATTI AUSTIN. Though she is hugely honored by these comparisons, Maxi's biggest dream is to one day successfully create a vocal stance that is fiercely incomparable! Her performance roster includes many known and soon to be known musical artists of all genres. To name a few, she has shared the stage with Blue Note jazz recording artist Patricia Barber, acclaimed Folk American songwriter Holly Long, she has graced the Chicago Sunday morning CBS television program, "Different Drummer," and vocally co-led, and co-wrote for an original classic rock/funk fusion band called Low Tide. It was through these experiences that Maxi honed her musical skills by fine tuning harmonies, and tapping into her naturally inspiring lyrical ability. Due to the above mentioned experiences and preparation, Maxi was able to meet and musically connect with Chicago bred music producer/artist Spike Rebel. The two bonded instantly, and thus began a 6 month journey to the completion of Maxi's debut album "Soulful Integrity". Spike rebel, the composer of all the album tunes, and Maxi, the singer/songwriter, set out to create an album that encompassed everyone's musical tastes. "Soulful Integrity" is layered with soulful tunes like I'M READY, r&b flavored STAY FOR A WHILE, smooth jazz groovin' 2 YEARS, with a special guest appearance by saxophone player Johnny "Mag" Sax, and most certainly some inspirational tunes like LIFT HIM UP! Though this is her first album, listeners will be compelled by her convicting lyrical content, and amazingly beautiful vocal styling's that she laced on the microphone. This album is well worth the purchase and sharing with the world! This young lady is making waves in the vast ocean known as the music business.
