Max Gomez

Singer and songwriter Max Gomez grew up in Taos, New Mexico, the son of a Portuguese-Spanish father and an Irish-Scottish mother.

He fell early under the influence of country blues, and then moved on to classic modern singer/songwriters like Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and John Prine, as well as folk-based rockers like Tom Petty and Neil Young, honing his songwriting skills and developing a style that melded all of his influences, but was still uniquely his. Gomez released a debut album, the Jeff Trott-produced Rule the World, on New West Records early in 2013. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi
