“Plenty of people have had something to say about the talent of one of the youngest bandleaders in Bend, 14-year-old Maxwell Friedman. Friedman, who recently started his freshman year of high school, already boasts a well-rounded career in music — yes, I said career. And yes, he's only a teenager. ”
“Fifteen-year-old keyboard prodigy and Hammond artist Maxwell Friedman launched his eponymous neo-jazz-soul-funk-fusion quartet early last year. After high-profile gigs with Five Alarm Funk, Ural Thomas & The Pain and Kung Fu and sets at 4 Peaks Music Festival and Bend Roots Revival, the band, which also features guitarist Gabe Johnson, drummer Connor Streeter and bassist Mark Karwan, is prepping its debut live album.”
