Max Gomez joins us live in-studio

Taos singer-songwriter Max Gomez stopped by the KSUT studios on Monday (11/5) for some live music and conversation with host Denny Rahilly.

Recorded in Portland, Oregon, with producer Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists), the album bears the fruits of a period of introspection & renewal: deeply lyrical songwriting, a newfound expression of voice, and, more than ever before, a daring synthesis of her broad musical influences into a powerfully individual artistic vision. "I stretched myself as a singer on this record and used voices I never have before as a writer," she explains.
