For three years, Max Helgemo walked hospital hallways as a working musician in residence playing songs for patients. His musical style grew out of the intimacy of these often one-on-one performances, with early comparisons to the stripped down sound of Iron & Wine and Gregory Alan Isakov. Helgemo’s 2019 recordings take a decidedly new direction as he embraces the creative freedom of his home studio, tracking all of the parts to his lush productions himself.
