Emerging pop queen Maxon is an artist from Melbourne, currently shaking audiences across the state with her trademark vocal and boundless song- writing talents.
In three short years of launching, Maxon has won many hearts and inked herself deep into the Melbourne music scene. Releasing her debut EP in 2016 (showcased at The Workers’ Club), ‘New World’ gave listeners a glimpse into the musical world of Maxon. Following the release, she appeared on The Voice Australia, successfully auditioning with her own rendition of Delta Goodrem’s ‘Wings’.
Since The Voice, Maxon has released her new single ‘No Impersonator’, and launched to a sold out Paris Cat Jazz Club. A vulnerable, soaring ballad masquerading as a comforting lullaby to spotlight the life of the many pseudo-extroverts of the creative industries. This is something Maxon has experienced and addressed in an attempt to raise awareness and help those who suffer from such anxieties.
2017 was an incredible journey for Maxon, having performed alongside Australian favourites, Jamie MacDowell and Tom Thum, Gretta Ray and Ella Hooper (MOTH International Women’s Day Show), Angie McMahon, Kylie Auldist, Alex Lahey and Wendy Matthews. Maxon has been involved in showcasing the Mornington Peninsula’s finest in the most recent Music Crawl hosted by Music Victoria, performed at LivenLocal with Hachiku, St Kilda Festival 2018 and two packed shows with the latest incarnation of the If You See Her Say Hello choir at The Toff in Town, presented by Melbourne Fringe Festival.
Those lucky enough to see Maxon live in the coming months will witness a stirring the Australian music scene is yet to encounter.
With a passion for songwriting and performance, Maxon’s teaching methods focus on creativity and artist development; she encourages her students to listen to a wide variety of music to “find their voice”. Lessons with Maxon have a strong emphasis on originality, and focus on developing students as artists, singers and performers. These ideas are combined with singing skills, techniques, repertoire and music theory, where the main objective is to allow students to express themselves freely and become the best they can be.
