My name is Max Swan. I am a saxophonist and hip hop producer from Philadelphia. I work with LP Stiles (sax), Mic Stew, Aime, Myke Storm, Voss, Dirk Quinn, Selina Carrera, Cody Kahmar, Chill Moody, Brandon Hines, Beano, WrittenHouse, Kuf Knotz, Jaguar Wright, Phil Roy, and tour over 250 dates per year around the country, while performing in Philadelphia's larger concert venues.
Here's the write-up for my most recent album released, The OGEP:
Released in a rather underground, self-promoted format, the OGEP (Original Gangster Extended Play) is the first foray into the extreme capabilities of Philadelphia's own Max Swan. An award-winning saxophonist and producer, Swan taps into the truest forms of hip-hop, neo-soul, and jazz fusion, portraying a vast array of influences with unmatched honesty and feel, no matter which direction he chooses. One track after another on the OGEP, Swan reveals hidden abilities from his extensive work on EWI, MPC, Vocals, Saxophone, Keyboards, and Vocoder, arranging able-bodied, genre-crossing arrangements, of which he recorded, mixed, and performs without a flaw on the live stage; this material is the future of fusion between Hip-Hop, EDM, and Jazz music.
