New England-based, T Max is a man of many hats (literally and figuratively). He's the singer/ songwriter/ storyteller who ran The Noise, New England's longest-running music magazine. He also founded Boston Rock Opera, where he produced and acted in Jesus Christ Supertar, wrote two folk-rock operas, released nine solo albums, produced Boston Rock 'n' Roll Trading Cards, was the music director for Project Eno, a tribute to Brian Eno, lectured on marketing music media at Emerson College, was a fine artist in wood, is an art photographer, graphic artist. And to show that he's not just interested in fields of art, he placed 4th playing chess in the US Open in 1988. New England music legend Willie "Loco" Alexander says, "T Max is a man from another century, like Ben Franklin or Ian Whitcomb, a man of a thousand voices - and hats. His music runs the gamut of standards to scat—creating songs from the lost jukeboxes of time. Amen."
