Watch & Listen
As an iHeart 2019 ‘Best New Pop Artist’ nominee, MAX has been labeled by Billboard as a top pop-star to watch and a “Young Pop-God” by GQ. Born in New York City, the multi hyphenate artist, actor and dancer has toured the world multiple times over, been featured in a Dolce and Gabbana campaign with Madonna, and starred in critically acclaimed films and television shows. With the breakout success of his 2016 full-length album, Hell’s Kitchen Angel, MAX yielded an inescapable smash in the form of his hit-single “Lights Down Low”. The song generated half a billion streams globally, earned double platinum certifications in the US and Canada, gold in Holland and Australia, the song soared on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, reached #7 at Top 40 radio, #1 on Shazam, and #1 on the Billboard Adult Pop Radio airplay chart.
As the track took off, MAX delivered seismic renditions of the song on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Live with Kelly and Ryan, Good Morning America, and TRL. “What people loved about ‘Lights Down Low’ was the story, I’d never been more honest. It just clicked. I only scratched the surface on Hell’s Kitchen Angel, though,” he goes on to add, "I’m taking even more risks on my next album, House of Divine. I want to be as authentic as possible whether it is about losing people in my life or just who I am as a person. The new music continues to dive deeper into spreading a message of being true to who you are, wearing what you want to wear, loving who you want to love, and being accepting.” With his sophomore album on the way and a world tour in the works, 2019 is shaping up to be a huge year for MAX.
Indie-Pop sensation, UPSAHL has every right to celebrate. Last year, she released her first proper single, “Can You Hear Me Now,” a bouncy, rhythmic, and poignant track that set the internet positively abuzz.
“It’s a message to someone on the other end of a failing relationship,” UPSAHL says of the song. “It’s the kind of relationship that has been dysfunctional for a long period of time to the point where one person decides it isn’t worth the stress, time, or energy anymore.”
Now, UPSAHL is gearing up for the release of her latest single, “Kiss Me Now,” on which she seamlessly blends elements of Indie Rock, Pop, and Electronica. Produced by Max Frost, “Kiss Me Now” officially drops on February 9th.
Given the maturity in her craft, it’s nearly impossible to believe that Taylor Upsahl, who goes by simply UPSAHL, recently tossed her mortarboard in the air as a high school graduate. For someone so young, the Phoenix, AZ native is a remarkably skilled singer, songwriter and performer. It’s no wonder the Phoenix New Times proclaimed that her “songwriting will blow you away” and that her songs “transcend her teenage years, with catchy lyrics and melodies relatable to all ages.”
A local darling for national touring acts in Phoenix, UPSAHL recently played the McDowell Mountain Music Festival, opening for artists like The Shins, Beck, and Flume.
Born into a musical family, UPSAHL started playing both guitar and piano at the age of 5. “My dad was touring in bands long before I was born,” shares UPSAHL, “so I was lucky enough to have a band room in my house all throughout my childhood. Having access to instruments and a thorough understanding of music allowed me to start writing my own stuff when I was 13.”
By the time she was 14, UPSAHL had written and released a self-titled EP, which gained much-deserved recognition throughout the Phoenix music scene. A graduate of the Arizona School for the Arts, a performing arts middle/high school, UPSAHL continued to hone her craft, while being classically trained on piano, guitar and choir every day.
Influenced by artists like The Shins, Spoon, Lorde and Beyonce, UPSAHL has an undeniable ability to write songs that can permeate your psyche, forcing you to tap into your deepest emotions. “I like to maintain powerful and complex lyrics that are relatable to a variety of people in a variety of situations,” shares UPSAHL. “I especially like to write about relationships, friendships, politics and important cultural issues.”
2018 will see UPSAHL spending most of her time in Los Angeles working on music with a wide range of songwriters and producers, all the while releasing a constant flow of new material to the masses.
“I’m incredibly excited to see what’s next,” affirms UPSAHL. “Not only has my sound evolved, but so have I.”
