Bio

Maxine’s songwriting technique and heart pounding delivery are reminiscent of Jon Mayer, The Indigo Girls, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Laura Nyro, and Cole Porter with a twist of Elvis. With clever, thoughtful lyrics and jazz influenced harmonies, her style ranges from the deep and sultry to the light and whimsical.

Born in Brooklyn, NY, Maxine started her first band at the age of 9 and never stopped performing. In pursuit of her dream, Maxine sought out her formal training at The Berklee School of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. After graduation, she stayed in the New England area performing in venues such as Saints, Somewhere, Oasis Coffeehouse and The Berklee Performance Center. Upon her return to New York City in the late eighties she continued her musical career, performing at the Lesbian and Gay Community Center, Barnard College, WOW Cafe, the Cauldron Coffeehouse, Rhythms Club and Ariel's. Maxine’s unique sound has obtained her interviews with Outlook radio station, WBAI and Blooming Out Radio.

Maxine spends much of her time involved in animal rescue efforts and is always happy to donate her talent to fund raising events. With her hit singles “In Something With You” and “Dynamite” already gaining national acclaim, she is currently in the studio working on her album, Best of Maxine and the Oracles, available in late 2008. Be sure to look for this star on the rise.
