Hailing from Des Moines, Iowa, Maximilian Eubank writes a cross genre of Acoustic music, blending the sounds with a sense of Folk, Folk Rock, Anti-Folk, Acoustic Rock and Acoustic Alternative sensibility. With a commitment to melodies that are interesting and infectious, Maximilian embarked upon his musical passions at the tender age of fourteen. He ignited an Acoustic guitar band, Triple Vision, writing and creating the majority of the music and lyrics that comprised the trio's sound. In a few years Triple Vision turned into a larger band, Euforia, of which he was the lead singer and rhythm guitar. These experiences led Maximilian to eventually moving to Colorado and defining his voice as a singer/songwriter on the music circuit. Maximilian's lyrics and records tend to reflect an introspective point of view regarding lost and found love, systematic injustice, faith and the everyday hardships that effect life. In 2008, Maximilian compiled his years of experience into independently recording his debut LP, 10:00 in the Afternoon. The album spawned the success of quite a few standout singles. Maximilian has been heavily influenced by such industry greats who include Martin Sexton, Bradley Nowell, Jason Mraz, Ben Harper and Jack Johnson. These inspirations can be heard within the melodic illustration of sound that creates some of Maximilian's most popular singles, Brother Man and Pick of the Litter. All of Maximilian's music is saturated in a lyrical message that is therapeutic, suggesting that everyone in the world is indirectly affected by the same modes of emotion. Maximilian creates songs that evoke a strong sense of emotion in his listeners, as well as framing the feelings that existed during the moments in which the track was recorded. Maximilian's music ties humanity in union, as his metaphoric and abstract lyrics also reveal the idea of sharing our experiences and taking them into the world; living connected, instead of living as individuals fighting for all of our material wants and needs. Maximilian has delivered his messages by performing center stage at various coffee house, bar and concert venues across Boulder, Denver, Chicago, Omaha, Iowa City and Des Moines. He has had the privilege of being able to juxtapose his original voice and telling lyrics, with jokes that always ease his audience into the confines of his live performances. Recently becoming Cedar Rapids' first ever Acoustic Idol, Maximilian has also begun to garner airplay on an array of non-profit and community college radio stations. Standby is Maximilan's newest musical collection and is an EP that successfully exemplifies his range as an acoustic musician. In 2009 he plans to continue writing music and playing live shows as he solidifies himself as a successful artist and musician. Ultimately, Maximilian Eubank wants to continue creating honest music that will forge his career into a time and space where he will be able to live his life. All the while reinventing the manufactured sound of mainstream, American music.
