The first time I saw Maxwell Cabana live I knew I had to get the Portland trio on the show to ask them about their eclectic and captivating sound. I would describe the band’s sound as a combination of Jimi Hendrix’s rhythm section and a fresh take on vintage R&B vocals and guitars. During the show, the guys explained how they all came to Portland and then to the project. I really enjoyed the influences they brought in for me to play, after hearing the artists that inspire them, it made me understand their vibe even more. Later in the show we heard the bands original recordings and had them perform a few live tracks for our listeners. I had a wonderful evening with Maxwell Cabana and I know you’ll enjoy the podcast.
At my core, I am a musician, songwriter, producer, studio owner/engineer, and, most importantly, a lover of all things music. It is my goal to help connect listeners to local artists. I believe we should all be searching for the next thing that inspires us.
I am originally from Arizona, where over many years, I played in several different independent bands in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. I put in many, many hours of grassroots-style promotion in order to get my bands heard. I am excited to be a part of Portland Radio Project where I can provide an avenue to local Portland musicians to share their art.
