Biography

Early Maxwell was established in 2005 by Josh Keohane (vocals, guitar) and Hunter Thoda (keys), with the intention of creating truthful music that pleases the body and soul. The evolution of the band and the sound has been explosive; there has been money stolen, friendships lost, and music played through the entire incendiary process. The manically impressive Early Maxwell molds their life experiences and emotions into a sound that is true. Music has lifted us all out of various nefarious situations and our love for our music is evident in every strum, slap, and strut. Wes Youngblood (guitar, vocals), Jeff Lewis (bass, vocals), and Harvey Waldman (drums) have expedited the evolutionary process by bringing their own brands of hard rock, funk and bi-polar blues that have enhanced the sound immensely. Our musical goal is artfully simplistic……… We want to create music that is true and moving in all directions. This mix of soul inspired blues vocals, jazz/metal/rock fusion drums, scientifically meticulous and melodious synths and organ tones, deep and cutting bass, coupled with the twin guitar attack elevates this band out of the doldrums of pop rock and in line with timelessly true music.
