bio:

Max grew up in rural New York and started writing songs while making his living as a busker in Puerto Rico. He's since put out three albums, two EPs, and seven volumes of weekly songs through his ongoing weekly songs project.  He's toured North America & Europe, sharing the stage with Justin Townes Earle, Lake Street Dive, The Ghost of Paul Revere, The Weather Station, 10,000 Maniacs, Dustbowl Revival, Rising Appalachia, Jim Lauderdale, and many others.

Timeless and utterly current...as much Woody Guthrie as Chance the Rapper.
— We Are: The Guard
Engaging, breathtaking, each work on this folk masterpiece is chilling. Max García Conover is a composer of great talent; his songs are unmistakably appealing.
— Performer Magazine
Man this is some gorgeous stuff. Conover is a hell of a fingerstyle guitarist and he has an arresting vocal style, with a ton of presence.
— The Portland Phoenix
Conover has a warm, unique voice, and his lyrics tell stories in literary ways that make people care.
— Portland Music Awards (Best New Act 2012)
These are songs with real heart and character, that demand repeated listens.
— Crack In The Road
...Genuine and true and [hits] home in a way similar to other folk greats such as Iron and Wine.
— We All Want Someone To Shout For
Springsteen-esque at points, yet soaked in an almost John Hughes sense of romanticism.
— Crack In The Road
As Burrow comes to its last tracks, I found that the whole album never seemed to die down. 5 out of 5.
— Confront Magazine
His images pour out like Dylan Thomas or James Joyce, like impressionistic paintings, full of feelings.
