Max García Conover is a songwriter & one-man band based in Maine. He grew up in New York and started writing songs while making his living as a busker in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 2007. He's since put out new music at a furious pace while touring North America & Europe; sharing the stage with Justin Townes Earle, The Weather Station, Frontier Ruckus, Jim Lauderdale, and many others; and releasing a new song most weeks through Patreon

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
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
One of the strongest albums of 2017.
— No Depression
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
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.
