There are a few things you should know about musician, producer and songwriter Max Frost. He developed his eclec?c style of music playing in various projects throughout his teen years. Max became a musician when he was eight, learning guitar simply because music was always around him and he loved it. He started playing shows at 12 and collaborated with a diverse array of ar?sts like Aus?n icon Bob Schneider and hip-hop MC/producer Kydd. AJer hearing musicians like Erykah Badu and D’Angelo in his late teens, Max began incorpora?ng hip-hop elements into his blues-inspired stylings, interested in the idea of combining modern rhythms with classic vintage tones in his music.
“White Lies,” a boisterous number that expresses the feeling of paranoia one finds in a rela?onship and reflects that aching fear of
betrayal, in April 2013. The track hit No. 1 on The Hype Machine’s “Most Popular Tracks on Blogs Now” in April and May, and Max suddenly found himself with a far greater audience than Aus?n, TX. Max channeled the song’s success into the crea?on of his debut EP, Low High Low, out in October. For the musician, the EP is an opportunity to showcase the way he pulls in aspects of various styles, from blues to funk to electro to hip-hop to pop, and fuses them together in a new way.

!“A good song is 95 percent of complete thought,” Max says. “A small part of it should be leJ vague and incomplete because that’s where a listener projects in their own life and their understanding of how it fits as a whole for them. I want to leave space in my music for the other person to project what they’ve lived. That’s true of my new EP and it will be true of my forthcoming album.”

"Ladies and Gentlemen, we are The Latenight Callers...and we're much obliged..."

The Latenight Callers assembled themselves in a seedy basement in Lawrence, KS, around a card table strewn with liquor bottles, cigarettes, and shared tales of strange and debaucherous encounters....

The band soon moved their base of operations to a seedy basement in Kansas City, MO, turned up their amps, their synths, their bullhorns, and refined their dark, dancy tales for execution in front of the public at large...

The Latenight Callers were subsequently referred to as "Patsy Cline singing for Portishead", "Sexy Lounge Rock", "Noir-a-Go-Go" after their live shows swayed, swaggered, and charmed their audiences into their back-seats...

Kansas City knows the grit and allure of the Noir world through it's own history, and The Latenight Callers write a new chapter in that crime-novel that is the lust, the murder, the open road of The Cold, Cold Heart of America...
