Songwriter, vocalist, and poet Max Lockwood channels the flair of Tom Petty and the eloquence of the Beat Generation’s finest to create a sound rooted in songcraft and heartfelt lyricism, and bound with elements of rock and roll, folk, and pop. With full arrangements and rich poetic focus, the listener is led into a deep sonic landscape by songs that seek to uncover truths of love, adversity, and growth.
Born and raised in a small West Michigan town, Lockwood fell in love with music at an early age and began writing songs and performing professionally in his early teens. After studying classical bass performance at DePaul University and poetry at University of Michigan, he continued his pursuit of music in his own groups, as a producer, and as a bassist backing many of Michigan’s most beloved artists. He has released five albums with his rock band Big Dudee Roo, and one previous solo effort titled “Outrider”
"An impressively multi-sided, soulfully expressive debut from Rachel Mazer marks the start of what should be a longstanding solo career for the singer-songwriter."

“(It's) the kind of song you’d hear in a commercial, then whip out your Shazam app in a flash to find out what it is and who is singing it—Mazer’s voice is commanding, and “Open Heart” is a fresh take on studio jazz and soul music.”
Rachel Mazer is a retro pop singer songwriter based in Los Angeles, originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. Rachel started her music career as a sought after and skilled freelance multi-instrumentalist (tenor saxophone, bass, guitar) after studying saxophone performance at the University of Michigan. Since the release of her first single ‘Is It So Wrong’ at the end of 2018, people have begun to recognize Mazer as a solo artist and buzz of her original music has been growing. Since releasing her debut album 'How Do We Get By' in March 2019, Mazer’s music has been praised and written about by dozens of music publications including Paste Magazine, American Songwriter, and LA Music Blog. This ten track album has been compared to the likes of Lake Street Dive, Lianne La Havas, and Sarah Bareilles. In summer 2019, Mazer will be touring in Europe supporting Moorea Masa, as well as playing shows up the midwest and east coast.
