Modern World

    ‘Modern World’ is the second album from 26-year-old Iowa native Max Jury. The follow up to 2016’s critically acclaimed, self-titled debut, ‘Modern World’ is a graceful, sophisticated and truly contemporary body of work, brimming with Jury’s vast and eclectic range of influences. It is an album about life, friendship and facing each day with a renewed clarity. Produced by four time Grammy nominated Robin Hannibal (Kendrick Lamar, The Internet, Jessie Ware, Anderson .Paak), the album is steeped in soul and jazz influences. The stunning ‘Stillness’ for example, arrives with a bassline that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Thundercat record. ‘Fading Out of You’ manages to evoke Jury’s newly chosen home of Paris before a huge RnB beat comes in, complimented perfectly by the warmth and subtlety of his vocal, which since his debut, has grown into an androgynous instrument that dances across his music.

    Max Jury

    Max Jury

      You might have seen him on tour with Lana Del Rey or Rufus Wainwright and witnessed the plaintive heartache that lives within his music. Or you might have heard him on Radio 1, 2 or 6 Music. Or read about him in Clash or Mojo.

      For Max Jury is making waves. His new single ‘Numb’ evokes the longing to escape, a longing that took him from Iowa to London, a city that’s become a second home to this accomplished young musician.

      On this hugely impressive debut album, Max weaves an intoxicating tapestry of 70’s Laurel Canyon acoustic confessionals and 21st century Neo Soul. It’s a sound of rare beauty. Recorded in New York with hip-hop producer Inflo and a crackerjack band of musicians who often play with Alicia Keys and D’Angelo and in a sleepy North Carolina town with the musical director of a small, local black church. Both places helped Max effortlessly bridge gospel and soul with his country roots.

      Mark Ronson says: “Max’s songs and musicianship conjure p so many of my favourite elements of country, soul, gospel and rock’n’roll. I can listen to his album on repeat!”
