Vocalist Max Wellman is enticing music lovers throughout the region. With a sound evoking the likes of Sinatra and Connick, Wellman’s recordings & performances promise that the Great American Songbook is alive & well for a new generation of listeners.
Over the years, Wellman has had recorded success with his ‘Comes Love’ EP (2009), ‘Max Wellman Live with His Big Band’ (2010) & ‘You Must Believe In Spring’ (2014). He also routinely sells out his Songbook Project subscription service — a project that sheds light on dozens of treasured standards every year. Wellman has successfully produced concerts at many of the midwest’s gems, from historic Hoyt Sherman Place to the Des Moines Playhouse to the restored Paramount Theater in Cedar Rapids. Additionally, Wellman has appeared at some of the great clubs throughout the midwest, from the Drake Hotel in Chicago to Dazzle in Denver & many in between. Performances alongside vocalist Rose Colella (Chicago) & pianist Annie Booth (Denver) have been met with rave reviews.
Coming off the release of his full-length big band album, ‘Just In Time,’ Wellman founded Noce, a state-of-the-art jazz club in the Western Gateway neighborhood of downtown Des Moines.
Max's music is available at maxwellman.net as well as on Spotify, Apple Music, & any other prominent music distributor.
