Taos singer-songwriter Max Gomez stopped by the KSUT studios on Monday (11/5) for some live music and conversation with host Denny Rahilly.
Max Gomez got his start as a working musician at age 15, singing both original music and country and blues classics in bars around his hometown of Taos, NM. He studied blues artists like Robert Johnson and Big Bill Broonzy, while also learning songs of legendary country/folk writers including Johnny Cash, Townes Van Zandt and Kris Kristofferson. “I’m influenced by the old stuff,” Max admits. “To me, that’s the best music.”
Great to meet and hear from a rising young, regional performer. You've been hearing tracks from his forthcoming CD 'Rule the World' on KSUT, due out on New West Records in early 2013.
