Hot Shots: Maxwell Becomes A ‘Storyteller’

Published: Tuesday 31st May 2011 by Sam

Soul crooner Maxwell reminisced on his 15 year career during a taping of VH1 Storytellers this week.

The ‘Pretty Wings’ singer assembled 150 fans for the intimate gig, which was shot at  New York’s Metropolis Studio.

Speaking during the show, which airs on June 17th, he said:

“’Storytellers’ has been around for 15 years, and it’s been 15 years since I put out my first album ‘Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite’. You have this dream as a kid, and the next thing you know you’re at ‘VH1 Storytellers’ and the crowd is singing along to your songs. It’s a blessing.”

The 38 year old is currently prepping the sequel to 2009’s double Grammy winning ‘BLACKsummers’night’ for release later this year.

    “Urban Hang Suite” came out when I was about 7 or 8… and my mother was totally IN LOVE with Maxwell

    I understand and appreciate his music much better now! He’s a legendary neo-soul artist in the making 🙂
