Max Childs
Max Childs is a contemporary pop songwriter/band from central New York.

Max Childs began his musical journey at age 6 when he began private study on piano and cello. His parents being musicians, Max quickly found a love for music and fueled creativity by practicing composition. At age 11, he was commissioned to write a piece, “Jungle Monkey’s”, for the Cornell Chamber Orchestra. In the year following, the Little Rock Symphony Orchestra of Arkansas commissioned a piece by Shuhan he titled, “Alchemy." After years of private Western Classical study, Max changed focus and began learning American Classical music (Jazz). This shifted his composition into a singer-songwriter style and he started blending jazz harmony into his pop songs, finding influence from Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Queen and Allen Stone to name a few. 

On March 1st, 2019, Childs released his first single, "Last Summer" on all digital listening platforms.
