Johnny Maxwell – Numb:
What would you do if you had the chance to perform on national television in front of a panel of judges consisting of Simon Cowell, Brittany Spears, L.A. Reid, and Demi Lovato for the renowned X Factor? Most aspiring artists would crumble under the pressure, but not Johnny Maxwell. Not only did he electrify the audience, he was also voted onto the show by earning a “YES” from each and every judge.
After appearing on X Factor, this California native was determined to follow his dreams and continues to put his talents to use. He has been quoted as saying “I just want to show people that it’s possible to do what you want to do.” In order to follow this ideology, Maxwell continually released singles while remaining unsigned to a record label.
His newest EP, Numb, is his newest effort, appealing to a diverse audience and a varied demographic. Fans of everyone from Nick Jonas to G Eazy to Flo Rida will dig deep into songs that ride the dynamic wave of pop and R&B inspired gems. The lead single, “Numb,” is the perfect encapsulation of that vibe. The valleys are low and spacious, and the chorus soars high like a mountain peak. It’s exactly the kind of song that makes fans of all stripes stand up and take notice of the brilliance before them.
