Max Earnshaw is a 23-year old New Zealand artist creating a unique blend of Pop and Rock music.
Influenced at an early age by bands like Kings Of Leon & Arctic Monkeys, he discovered a love for song crafting. He spent his childhood busking on the streets of Christchurch. Now based in Auckland, Max has released 4 singles with recognition across the NZ charts, Rock Radio and Media. Max absolutely smashes it live across NZ venues alongside rising artists like There's A Tuesday, Harry Parsons, The Raddlers, and Geoff Ong.
His new rock single “What We Made” releases on the 21/5/2021. "What We Made" is about walking away from a relationship and everything that was built together, good and bad. This multi-layered song was created during the first 2020 lockdown. This song is being pushed as part of NZ Music Month to Rock Radio and Media across the country.
His recent single ‘Stay’ debuted at #12 on the Hot NZ Singles Chart. He made his radio debut on RNZ, KAOS FM, and Rock stations across the country with his sophomore single ‘Lonely Love’. He has made NZ media like The 13th Floor, Muzic.net, and BUZZMUSIC (U.S). His debut video (“Temporarily”), featured an international collaboration with LA based smoke bomb artist – ‘Skeleton of Colour’. And Max’s latest summer single “Love It When You Hate Me” had a headline show that was reviewed favourably by The 13th Floor.
Max is one to watch in the Auckland and NZ scene playing headline shows at venues like Cassette Nine, The Wine Cellar and Whammy Bar, as well as touring to The PowderKeg (Ohakune), and The Wunderbar (Christchurch).
“His songs are reminiscent of pop rock/indie rock bands like Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, The Kooks or Harry Styles. I loved the indie boy band feel; it really brought me back to raw live music” - muzic.net.nz
