The Maykit has been making waves in the Greater Denver area's indie scene for nearly 4 years now, and has shared the stage with the likes of Slow Club, Balmorhea, David Dondero, Country Mice, Baywood, Alela Diane, Laura Gibson, Devon Williams, Country Mice, A Weather, Lydia Loveless, Peter Mulvey, Ivan And Alyosha, Roses Pawn Shop, Serious Moonlight (Alan from The Photo Atlas) Caroline Smith and the Good Night Sleeps, All Human (Adam from Fear Before, Orbs) Jesus or Genome (Mike from Loom) and Miles Kurosky (from the band Beulah). In addition to building a strong respected name in CO, Max has toured the midwest and west coast with All Human and Jesus Or Genome, including playing Salt Lake City's first independent music festival, Crucial Fest, as well as The Denver Post Music Festival "The UMS" four years in a row.
The Denver Westword had this to say of Max: "Clearly there are some nods to Nick Drake in the way that The Maykit's Max Winne puts a song together. It's there in his ability to conjure images of flights of fantasy — the kind that strike you during your workday in a moment of reprieve from the prosaic tasks at hand". The Maykit has a beautifully original style that must be listened to, and further more witnessed before a true judgement can be cast.
On November 21st Over Water was added to the group of albums The Maykit has released (Two Full Lengths and on EP.) The new full band approach gives a more dynamic sound while still remaining true to the folk style.
Red Alice (Kal Cahoone)
The Sickness and the Cure is Kal Cahoone's newest release, an album steeped in marshy Americana. The humidity of her vocals stick to the trickling string arrangements like a Tropical summer shower: sweltering and refreshing. Aye, the brooding melodies are as balanced, fragile, and ferocious as a rainforest or the folklore that broods within.-Robert Laux
