Since 2015 Australian songwriter/producer Max Byrne, aka Golden Vessel, has been crafting a unique sound that blends elements of electronic music with hip-hop, RnB and alternative pop, as he continues to explore different songwriting styles and techniques to help create a truly unique and engaging sound.
“I want to convey in my music everything I love about music. Whether it’s incorporating different genres into one song, or different processes and homages to different times” – Max Byrne
In such a short period of time Max Byrne has released two hugely successful eps (‘Before Sleep’ & ‘Right/Side’), has done two Australian headline tours, has been main support for Willow Beats and The Kite String Tangle on their national tours, signed an Australasian record deal with Exist Recordings, partnered with New World Artists for Australasian bookings & tours, sign a publishing deal with US agency Ultra Music Publishing, and has collected millions of streams via Spotify & Apple Music for his catalogue of released music.
Max has always seen Golden Vessel as being a collaborative project. He thrives on working with his friends and fellow music industry peers, and as he continues to expand his sound and artistic growth, he is excited about the music that he is yet to create with all of the new friends he makes along the way.
2018 has been a busy year for Golden Vessel. He’s been involved in writing & producing music for Filous, Benji Lewis, Mallrat, Allday and Cub Sport, as well as a few others that can’t be named just yet.
And back on the home-front he released a single in February called ‘Hesitate’ with this good friend and regular collaborator Emerson Leif, which has gone on to be his most successful release to-date with over 8 million streams on Spotify alone.
He also began working on his debut album and gave us three of its lead-singles; BIGBRIGHT, MOONSTONE, DIZZY & HIGHWAY, all with accompanying music videos designed set the perfect aesthetic for the upcoming album.
Golden Vessel then kicked-off 2019 with his first North American tour supporting New Zealand artist BAYNK, which was followed by his debut appearance at SXSW in Austin, Texas.
Then in May 2019 Golden Vessel released his highly anticipated debut album SLOWSHINE which features a stellar cast of guests including DUCKWRTH, E^ST, Woodes, Cult Shotta, Elkkle, Akurei, Lonelyspeck, Oscar Key Sung, The Nicholas and Emerson Leif, and it also comes with news of a 21-date North American headline tour that is happening throughout July 2019.
And that’s not all folks, there’ll be more touring news coming our way very soon…
