There is an undeniable positive energy building around Coonamble born country music artist, Max Jackson.
Raised on country music, Max knew from an early age that she wanted to be just like her favourite country singers, traveling far & wide, sharing stories and connecting with country people.
Max independently released her first album Life Of The Party in March 2020, 13 songs written from the heart, with unfortunate timing, just as the pandemic hit. Then, in 2022 her luck changed, taking out Australia’s biggest country music competition, Toyota Star Maker. Max became the 42nd winner of the competition, following in the footsteps of previous Star Maker success stories Keith Urban, Lee Kernaghan, James Blundell, Gina Jeffreys, Beccy Cole, Brad Cox and Samantha McClymont. Max took every opportunity in 2022, travelling far and wide to play shows & festivals wherever they would have her as the new Star Maker winner, including a trip to Nashville, showcasing her music on the world stage at CMA Fest.
In 2023, Max’s rise continues, recently being selected to perform at the inaugural SXSW in Sydney, scoring the special guest spot on The Wolfe Brothers national Livin’ The Dream Tour, signing a management deal with Stephen White Management and signing her first record deal with ABC Music. Max is currently in the studio and continues to record new music with award winning producer Rod McCormack.
After only 5 weeks of release, Max’s latest single, Little More Country, is proving to be a favourite at radio in Australia, racing up the chart and has also been picked up in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Sweden. Heading into 2024, Max Jackson has just been announced as the Official Ambassador of the Toyota Country Music Festival, Tamworth and is up for 2 Golden Guitars – Best New Talent and Female Artist of the Year.
