Three me‘s in bed. One happy. One sad. One squashed in the middle yet sometimes wrapped. And that‘s okay. With a gene pool from the UK but born and raised in Austria, songwriter/producer Max Hustwick, who goes by the artist persona happysadmedium, came to Liverpool in 2018 to pursue his passion for producing at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. By no means a virtuoso in any given instrument, he creates a sonic scenery through simple yet effective songwriting and dense production methods. Max, like many other producers his age, idolizes artists such as Caribou, Blood Orange, Toro y Moi and James Blake. Relying heavily on the modern mediums that allow musicians to create and write songs from the comfort of their laptop, it is not possible to place Max’s music in any one box and each production will walk you through a different landscape, all part of the same universe. Each song is pleasing in its originality, yet with a familiar thread of his voice and carefully chosen sounds and melodies. After a year of producing and working with artists such as Micayl, Platos Dream, and Aron (winter nostalgia). His second single Tea China set, which he wrote with his sister and close collaborator Katy Hustwick is out now!
