Biography

Kristen Maxfield has been thrilling NYC's music scene for two years with their modern old school R&B sound. Since Maxfield's recent return to Rochester she has joined up with fellow musicians: Troyka, Nick Murray of Filthy Funk, and BuddhaHood.

Co-conspirators Maxfield and Dan Stein (keyboards) have combined elements of old school R&B, Motown soul, ‘70’s funk, modern hip-hop, and classic songwriting into a powerful, inspiring sound that grabs the listener’s ear, engages the brain, and gets the booty in gear. Maxfield’s vocals, which go from sultry, smoky, and sweet to diesel-train power at the drop of a hat, are anchored by the muscular groove of a band steeped in the traditions of old-school R&B, jazz improvisation, and modern hip-hop.Fronted by vocal powerhouse Kristen Maxfield, the band’s fresh, soulful sound gets audiences on their feet from the first note and keeps them there to the last bar of the set.

With the release of Maxfield's 2009 EP, Whatcha Waitin’ For?, and support from Brother Wease (95.1FM), Frank De Blase (98.9FM), Kimberly and Beck (98.9FM) and Jeff Calkins, the Kristen Maxfield Band stands ready to explode out of the New York music scene with a bang.

Lyrics

Whatcha Waitin' For Boy?

Written By: Kristen Maxfield

Verse
Wait a minute let me tell you what’s been going on
It’s been sitting in my soul for so long
Give a breath just a second to release
Release this aggression and I’ll paint a picture of my obsession

Pre Hook
(You’re running through my mind)…so come on
Whatcha waiting for boy (Whatcha, Whatcha)
Whatcha waiting for boy (Whatcha, Whatcha)
(You’re running through my mind)…so come on
Whatcha waiting for boy (Whatcha, Whatcha)
Whatcha waiting for boy (Whatcha, Whatcha)

Hook
A girl like me who’s (smoking sexy) don’t you know
In just a second she’ll open up and let you in, you better
Think real hard cause I will (strip you sexy), I’ll take you in
I’ll take you for a ride and give you my skin

Verse
Well it aint to difficult to figure out
You’ve got some brains you’ve got some answers come on
Just let (you’ve just got to let it out) it out
When I show you what’s been going through my mind oh
You’ll take me in and realize that I’m worth the change that’s in your life
Don’t you know boy

Pre Hook
(You’re running through my mind)…so come on
Whatcha waiting for boy (Whatcha, Whatcha)
Whatcha waiting for boy (Whatcha, Whatcha)
(You’re running through my mind)…so come on
Whatcha waiting for boy (Whatcha, Whatcha)
Whatcha waiting for boy (Whatcha, Whatcha)

Hook
A girl like me who’s (smoking sexy) don’t you know
In just a second she’ll open up and let you in, you better
Think real hard cause I will (strip you sexy), I’ll take you in
I’ll take you for a ride and give you my skin
(ha, ha, ha)
(ha, ha, ha, ha)
(ha, ha, ha, ha)

One time’s all I need to show you
I don’t need more time don’t need to recognize NO
Cause I’m not here to criticize you
I’ll just lay myself beside you till morn’
One time’s all I need to show you

Cause I’m not here to criticize you
I’ll just lay myself beside you till morn’

We’ll lay here all day touchin every way, make me go crazy

So why don’t you lay with me and hold me ‘till we grow old

Walk with me in a way you’ve never ever done before

Cause it is a lonely road darling with road no place to go
So why don’t you lay here with me and hold me ‘till we grow old

Set List

Our sets generally run about 45-55 minutes when given that length of time. We tend to do mostly all original material and mix in one or two covers. I strongly feel that adding a cover tune or two not only helps to connect the audience to the original music but also revisits some of the greatest tunes to ever grace people ears.
