Max Navarro



STYLE: Melodic Rock/AOR

PROFILE: Max Philip Navarro was born May 9, 1982 in Vancouver BC, Canada. He started as a vocalist of the rock band Ax, but he took a solo career in 2002 with the helping hand of guitarist and producer Nick Mayer.

In 2005, thanks to the single “Wish”, Navarro enters the Asian rock charts and publishes the ep “Parallel Lines”. In 2006 he recruited on a permanent basis John Paul Bellucci (guitar), Jack Novell (bass) and Simone Morettin (drums) as a backing band, and embarks on a series of environmental campaigns that took him for a while away from music.

After three years of silence Max Navarro returned in 2008 with the first full length album, “Branded On My Skin,” which climbed the rock charts of China, Taiwan, Japan and Indonesia thanks to hit singles like “Cold Night Love Affair”, “Angel” and “On The Elephant Back”. “Cold Night Love Affair” was also chosen as theme song of international beauty contest “Lady Of The Universe” in 2007. In June 2008 Navarro undertook the European Faraway Tour that brought him to play in over 30 cities throughout Europe.

The success of “Branded On My Skin” leads the Italian-Canadian artist to get back to work and cut a new album of unreleased “No Belonging After Dark”, published in autumn 2009 and prefaced by the single “Wish”, recorded for this occasion in a new version. The new album included also a live version of “Out In The Midnight”, taken from a concert in Zurich in July 2008, and the second single “Get Away”.

The sales of “No Belonging After Dark” didn’t go well and Navarro was very close to retirement from music scenes, but it was once again thanks to the insistence of Cherry Lips Records and producer Nick Mayer that a new album came about. Anticipated by the first single, “Cryin’”, the new album “Hard Times” is due to release on May 31, 2012.
