Max’C is born in Louisville, Kentucky, this multi-talented entertainer has crossed boundaries that artists only dream of.

His father was an enthusiast of blues and jazz, while his mother and siblings are Gospel singers. Max’C says, I grew up in a home surrounded by music, all types of music. With his roots in gospel he found himself at a young age singing in school plays, choirs, and early into his teens with friends on the street corners. However, his biggest break came when he teamed up with James Black and Kari Kaivola to form the group 3rd Nation. Their debut album “One Nation” was recorded with Mega Mania Records and did well in Finland landing them an international record deal with SweMix Records out of Sweden. Hit producer Stonebridge, most well known for the hit song “Show Me Love” with Robin S., produced 3rd Nations second album.
In 1999, Max’C decided that he wanted to focus his efforts on a solo career teaming up with Jaakko Salovaara a.k.a. JS16. Jaakko, executive producer of Max’C’s, solo album “Passin Tyme”, launched in 2004. The singles “Caroline” and “Time to Get it On” have both received great attention and airplay making Max’C a favored performer in the Finnish and European market. Max’C has also dropped his talents to a number of artists on a variety of tracks. Topping the charts in over 12 countries, Max’C is credited with writing and performing the hook, for the Finnish hit band Bomfunk MC’s “Live Your Life”(The Bomfunk MC’s are known for the hit song “FreeStyler”).
