If you’re not yet familiar with the name of Jason Maxwell, you’re certainly about to be. Well-crafted songwriting ability is a skill bordering on the cusp of extinction, but to pair such talent with dynamic vocal ability is an amalgamation which elevates Maxwell to elite levels. Originally from Toronto and now recording out of Nashville, it’s easy to see why Maxwell has already gained so much traction throughout the industry, earning spots in Spotify’s Live Country (formerly known as Down Home Country) & Country Favourites playlists, Apple Music’s Country Lovin’, New in Country & New Music Daily playlists, Amazon Music’s Breakthrough Country, Certified Country & Fresh Alternative playlists, YouTube Music’s The New Crop playlist & Qub Musique’s Nouveautés Country playlist.
Already amassing over 1.5 million plays across digital platforms on his mesmeric back-catalogue, Maxwell continues to soar on account of his unique signature sound, even even landing a major sync-placement and cameo performance in the worldwide Netflix movie “Full Out 2” en route to a hectic touring schedule which has seen the Canadian perform as a supporting act for The Reklaws, The Washboard Union, Chad Brownlee, and J.J. Shiplett. Now, the country-pop star is getting up close and personal on new single ‘For Now’ via Believe Music Canada/Flying Colours Music/Glacier Bay Entertainment. Serving as an ode to his ex-girlfriend, Maxwell adds:
“Even though we had been broken up for a long time, I felt that things weren’t fully over between us. I loved her and still saw a future together. It was disheartening to realize that our relationship was really over and that she had moved on definitively. It’s a genuinely loving, somewhat bittersweet/toxic, but a straight from the heart message to her, telling her that she can do better than who she replaced me with. I truly want what is best for her, but what we shared in the past is a greater love than what she now shares with her new partner.”
Recorded in Nashville’s world-renowned Blackbird Studios, the track weaves vulnerable lyricism into an emotionally heartfelt soundscape, displaying Maxwell‘s deeply intimate vocals and strong guitar-led melodies. Displaying a real authentic vulnerability across the love-led ballad, Jason Maxwell is a name you’ll be hearing much more from in future.
