About the Band Members:
Brian Kittrell’s songwriting is inspired heavily by The Beatles and Led Zeppelin, but more so by the desire to keep the American culture of the blues alive and unforgotten. Not all he writes and performs is the blues, but he honors the art of storytelling, character building, and expression of truth. Brian is excited about Maxwell Mud because it is original and diverse, and all three musicians are invested in the art. The songs pour out of him and he has his two best friends there to interpret and add to the music. The band is tight, yet a springboard for improvisation.
Kenny Jones is a complex and unconventional rock musician. Highly-educated, classically trained, and surprisingly underexposed to modern music as a child, this bassist has taken to all things Rock and Roll, and Bluegrass, drawing inspiration from Victor Wooten and Edgar Meyer. Maxwell Mud allows Jones to act in a traditional role of a filtering agent, while taking detours into melodies, contouring through the landscape of the songwriting.
Kevin Johnson was influenced greatly by the tight, heavy sound of Led Zeppelin and all projects Josh Homme. He brings his versatility as a drummer to Maxwell Mud, able to relate to all parts because his own musicianship as a guitarist, bassist, drummer and singer-songwriter. Kevin is embracing putting his style into the trio dynamic in his own low-key way. Kevin really digs the fact that Maxwell Mud is a three-piece. This is his first time as a drummer in a band and he loves the dynamic. He likes watching Kenny and Brian work together and be brilliant, then throwing in his 2 cents to cap it off.
