A Lazy Sunday Arvo With Max Jackson

From humble beginnings in the small country town of Coonamble NSW, to winning Australia’s biggest country music competition, playing national & international Country Music Festivals and a Golden Guitar nomination, the last eighteen months has been quite the ride for Australian Country Artist, Max Jackson. It was in Coonamble that her love of country music blossomed. Max's mother would take her to the big touring shows that came through town and by the age of 5 years old Max had been given her first guitar and was starting to sing songs she was either writing or learning for the family. When the family moved from Coonamble to the harbour city of Newcastle, Max’s love of country music continued as she began singing at local Country Music nights, scored her first professional gig at 13 and attended the CMAA Junior Academy of Country Music in Tamworth twice, at the age 14 & 15 years. Another important milestone in Max's growth as an entertainer was graduating from the Talent Development Project in Sydney, regarded as one of the most successful development programs in the Australian music and entertainment business. 

After a year of traveling the country as the 2022 Star Maker Winner and playing major Country Music festivals throughout that year as a part of the Starmaker prize, Max now finds herself in a new and exciting phase of her career again. In August Max signed a management contract with Stephen White Management, seeing her join an elite stable of artists including Lee Kernaghan, The Wolfe Brothers and Canadian star Gord Bamford. Max has recently been the Special Guest on The Wolfe Brothers Livin' The Dream Tour and is working on new songs. 
In 2023, the culmination of all Max Jackson’s efforts came together. She not only signed with the prestigious Stephen White Management (Lee Kernaghan, The Wolfe Brothers); she also secured a deal with ABC Music and released her 1st single with the label, Little More Country. That single peaked at #1 on the Countrytown National Airplay Charts and held the top spot for 2 consecutive weeks. Max also was invited to perform at CMA Fest in Nashville and at SXSW in Sydney. Towards the end of 2023, Max was named the official Ambassador for the Tamworth Music Festival and also secured 2 x Golden Guitar nominations at the Australian Country Music Awards for Best Female Artist and New Talent. She won Best New Talent. All the signs are pointing to another big year is ahead for this rising star in Australian music.

With energetic stage presence, engaging banter and a cheeky sense of humour, Ryan has become a crowd favourite at the many venues he performs around Sydney and Wollongong.  His music is heavily influenced by legends of the past including George Strait, Alan Jackson, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley. Ryan is a NSW Talent Development Project graduate, a HSC Encore nominee, and will begin a Bachelor of Music degree at Berklee College of Music in Boston USA in late May 2024.  Whether performing solo acoustically, or with a full band behind him, Ryan brings an energy and enthusiasm to his performance that makes you fall in love with Country music all over again. With his signature blend of classic country twang, rock and roll swagger and heartfelt storytelling, Ryan is becoming a rising force amongst Sydney's country scene.
