Kevin Max paints with many colors and the beauty of his artistry is that he is always creating something new and innovative. Beginning with 4-time Grammy-Award winning and 17 GMA-Dove Award winning group DC Talk, he forged new territory by expanding the borders of what Christian music could sound like and helped exponentially grow the sales and awareness of Christian music. During the 2000’s, Kevin explored new musical directions releasing several highly-acclaimed solo albums that ranged in styles from alternative rock and spoken word to pop and rootsy gospel. Along the way, the ever-creative Kevin Max wrote books of poetry, a novel, acted in films, and toured the world which included residencies in LA and Las Vegas.
In 2012, Kevin joined his long-time friends in the band Audio Adrenaline as their new lead singer. Their album “Kings & Queens” was highly successful and garnered a massive hit radio single of the same name. Kevin’s return to the CCM community was welcomed with amazing enthusiasm as evidenced not only by success in sales and radio, but by playing almost 200 shows in support of the album. Fans and industry gatekeepers were ecstatic to once again hear the incomparable ‘voice’ of Kevin Max on tour and on the radio. Of his Audio Adrenaline experience, Kevin said, "The past two years have been an epic pursuit of music, missions and bringing hope to the ‘least of these.’ Being zoomed in close to Mark Stuart’s vision with Hands and Feet, and seeing first hand the work that was being done in Jacmel, Haiti, has given me a broader picture of what a rock-and-roll band could accomplish for the kingdom. It was beyond a joy to film a video in Haiti, and see the single ‘Kings and Queens’ capture a small glimpse into the lives of these beautiful children. It has been an honor to create an album with Mark and a handful of like-minded musicians, and tour this album for the last couple of years. Our friendships and bonds have strengthened beyond music, and the door that God opened for me to step through became a much bigger portal to finding myself. I am learning the difference between performing for God and serving Him through the gift of music."
Currently, Kevin is pursuing a renewed solo artist path without Audio Adrenaline as they are moving in a different creative direction. He will release a new album entitled “Broken Temples” on Motion Records in February 2015 working with producers Rob Hawkins, Josh Silverberg, & others. The first single, “Light Me Up” will hit radio in August with plans for touring in the fall and Spring 2015. Regarding this new season Kevin says, "I have spent the last two years being refined and restored. I feel revitalized. I am excited about what is around the corner for my family, friends and the music that God continues to gift us with. I have no desire to run from Nashville. I have no desire to run from what I have continued to pursue in the Christian Arts. If anything, I feel that these last two years have given me the tools and desire to make the best art I can within this industry. One of the first dc Talk monikers was ‘if it’s Christian, it ought to be better.’ That is my new goal and again more than ever, a slogan in my life. I, Kevin Max, promise to dive deep into music, poetry, stories and imagination, but most of all into the web of wonderful relationships and people that God has brought into my life on this amazing journey of the soul.”
