I'm Max!  I perform music under my middle name "Pavlovich" because it loosely translates to "son of Pavel" and I believe that I got my love for music from my father whose name is Pavel.

I've been playing music since I was six years old.  I started out with classical training on the piano, but as I discovered the great songwriters of the 60's and 70's such as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and The Beatles,  I taught myself to play the guitar and started writing songs.  On electric guitar, I am heavily influenced by great blues guitarists like Duane Allman, Derek Trucks, and John Mayer.

Currently, I live in Alexandria, Virginia with my cat, my dog, and my wife.  I am constantly writing new material, meeting local artists and sharing the music I love with those around me.
