Max Hunt (Fragile) - Hope (2021) 44.1-24 Country: Germany Genre: Progressive Rock Format: FLAC (*tracks) Quality: Lossless [44,1kHz/24 bit] Time: 01:07:00 Full Size: 761.69 MB This is Max Hunt's first official solo release of song based material. 'Hope' was created during the hardest part of the Covid19 Lockdown of 2020/21. With all live shows with well known German rock guitarist Siggi Schwarz, The Thrill, solo and duos having been cancelled and all social interaction having been prohibited for a protracted period in Germany, Max worked on his own in the Studio for many months on this release, pulling together music from the past and present into this new original album. This album was produced with financial support in the form of a Stipendium (Grant) from the Hessische Kulturstiftung. For Max 'Hope' represents the personal hope of a renaissance in musical culture and is inspired in part by the despair, anger and depression of this time and conversely the hope, enthusiasm and excitement for a better future. Other inspirations for 'Hope' include: Vicar's talking to Toads, the Bavarian 'Alte Kath Zwiefache' dance, reoccurring childhood dreams, Dark Age European history, Space flight, Scifi, fantasy, natural sounds, west African Baka polyphonic Yodelling and Languages. Max continues to work with Siggi Schwarz, Fragile and The Thrill and has also worked with Jon Anderson, Steve Howe & Alan White of Yes, ex-Marillion singer Fish, Chris Jagger, Pete York (The Spencer Davis Group), Chris Thompson (Manfred Mann's Earthband), Frank Diez (Peter Maffay), Nicky James (Denny Laine, The Jamesons, Johnny Walker, The Moody Blues 5), late 60s Pre Yes band Mabel Greer's Toyshop, Tantalus and UK TV presenter Johnny Ball.
