The Max Hightower Band
Max Hightower was born and raised in the Upstate of South Carolina. At age 12, he purchased his first Blues cassette tape Muddy Mississippi Waters Live. The new and mysterious sound of the music had such an immediate impact on him that in no time he was banging around on his grandmother’s Silvertone guitar. However, it was the Harmonica that became his instrument of choice. There was something almost spiritual to him about having an instrument that close to his voice; every breath had meaning. That little 10 hole harp led to his composing his own songs, playing the piano, bass, and guitar, singing, and producing. As one of the founding members of Plate Full O’ Blues, he now tours the USA , Canada , and Europe . He has even shared the stage with some of the very Blues legends that fueled his passion for the music. Over time, the combination of Max’s love of the Blues and his southern roots chiseled out a playful, witty and original style with plenty of rough edges to enjoy.
