Max Gomez Releases New EP "Me & Joe" On Brigadoon Records

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) New Mexico-based songwriter Max Gomez has released his new EP, Me & Joe on Brigadoon Records. An artist in the vein of Jackson Browne and John Prine, Gomez unites beatific melodies with weathered lyrics and a down-home delivery that make the five tracks that make up the record shine with honesty and soul. Me & Joe is now available to stream and download.

Gomez recently premiered his song "Joe" with The Boot, who writes of Gomez that "He's got a reputation as a relentlessly honest songwriter and performer, and 'Joe' is no exception." Gomez describes the song as being about "a down-and-out character...He compares cocaine to coffee and pain to cash as he searches for redemption". He also debuted his video for the uplifting "Make it Me" on The Bluegrass Situation, where he described the song as being about "The undeniable, scared-to-lose-it kind of love that can't be faked."

Fresh from his recent showcase in Nashville at 2017's Americana Fest, Gomez took the stage for a performance at the Red River Folk Festival in New Mexico. Gomez was instrumental in organizing the event, which ran from September 21-24 and featured Chuck Prophet, Shawn Mullins and other notable Americana acts.

Gomez first made waves as a songwriter with his song "Rule the World" from his 2013 album of the same name, acclaimed by USA Today and Esquire who named it as one of the best songs of 2013. Soon after, Kiefer Sutherland directed the music video for the single "Run From You."

Though still only in his twenties, Max Gomez has always had the heart of an old soul. As a child, the first songs he learned to sing were originally recorded in the 50s by Johnny Cash. As a teenage guitarist he adopted Big Bill Broonzy as his blues master. And as a budding performer, he apprenticed in the rarefied musical climate of northern New Mexico, where troubadours like Michael Martin Murphey and Ray Wylie Hubbard helped foster a folk and Western sound both cosmic and cowboy.

Judging by the company he keeps, Gomez is there positioned to emerge as a prominent voice of Americana's next generation. Since the release of his debut album, Rule the World, in 2013, he's shared billing on hundreds of stages with stalwarts of the genre like Shawn Mullins, James McMurtry, Buddy Miller, Jim Lauderdale, Patty Griffin, and John Hiatt. See below for a list of newly-announced tour dates.
