Max Forstater has been writing and performing original music for nearly 20 years as a vocalist, bassist, and guitarist. The National Defense Fund is his first solo project after a career touring and sidelining with various groups and other artists.
With a love of rock music throughout the ages and a deep passion for late 70s and early 80s New Wave, Punk Rock, Alternative Rock, and Pop, the The National Defense Fund draws songwriting influences and sounds from such great acts as Elvis Costello, The Jam, Joe Jackson, The Pretenders & Tom Petty and fuses them into a polished set with addictive hooks, pop sensibilities, and an allegorical storytelling style.
During an almost decade-long career in Atlanta Max, has performed in concert with such southern legends as Merl Saunders, Kevn Kinney, Drivn' 'n' Cryin', The Zambiland Orchestra, Moe, Pat McGee Band, Frog Wings and guitar great Barry Richman.
