“I want to convey in my music everything I love about music. Whether it’s incorporating different genres into one song, or different processes and homages to different times” – Max Byrne
Since 2016 Maxwell Byrne, aka Golden Vessel, has given us two independently released eps – ‘Before Sleep’ (2016) & ‘Right/Side’ (2018) – plus two albums – “SLOWSHINE” which was released in 2019 via Exist Recordings (ANZ) and Ultra Music (ROW), and “colt” which was released in 2020 via sumoclic which he co-owns with his good friend and long-time collaborator, Akurei.
There has also been a collection of stand-alone singles – ‘Control’, ‘Borrowed Time’ & ‘Cant Stay’ – as well as a song titled ‘Hesitate’ which features one of his regular collaborators, Emerson Leif, and has become one of his most successful releases to-date with over 17 million streams on Spotify alone.
Golden Vessel has completed three Australian headline tours as well as supporting the likes of Willow Beats, The Kite String Tangle, Jai Wolf and Sofi Tukker across Australia. He was also the main support on BAYNK’s 13-date North American tour in February 2019, he performed five showcases at SXSW in March 2019 and then kicked-off his own 21-date North American headline tour in July 2019.
Throughout 2020 Golden Vessel kept himself quite busy making the final touches to his second album “colt”. He gave us three exceptional lead singles – ‘midwest’, ‘littlebitwild (feat. Mallrat) and ‘that’s us’ (feat. The Nicholas & Rei So La – which helped build quite a bit of anticipation for the album’s release. When that time came around “colt” was met with much praise and attention from fans, industry peers and music curators around the world, and it has since collected over 5 million total streams across Spotify alone.
2021 has seen Maxwell Byrne launching a few new side-projects (an indie-rock band called Lucky Idiot and a lo-fi house project called 1tbsp), he’s giving us a 10-minute Golden Vessel single & music video in April titled ‘getforward’, and he’s already started working on his next Golden Vessel album as well…
