Max Gomez's 'Me & Joe' EP Acclaimed by Rolling Stone and More

Songwriter Max Gomez's new EP Me & Joe, out now on Brigadoon Records, continues to garner recognition from some of the most important outlets covering independent music today. A recent review in Rolling Stone gave the record 3.5 / 5 stars and described it as "a free-flowing sampler of roots-pop that touches on blues, folk, melancholy rock and campfire-pop with touchstones that range from Ramblin' Jack Elliott to Jack Johnson."

"Gomez hits the mark on every one of these five offerings," writes Lee Zimmerman for No Depression, "making this a teasingly tempting preview for whatever comes next."

"He's got a reputation as a relentlessly honest songwriter and performer, and 'Joe' is no exception," said The Boot, who premiered the EP's namesake track. Gomez also recently released his video for "Make It Me", which premiered on The Bluegrass Situation.

Max Gomez will be performing live throughout November, beginning this Wednesday in Boston for a show at Atwood's Tavern. His tour will take him through major markets on the East coast and midwest, including New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, St. Paul, St. Louis, and More. See below for a full list of dates.
A singer-songwriter in the vein of Jackson Browne and John Prine, Gomez unites beatific melodies with weathered lyrics and a down-home delivery that makes his songs shine with honesty and soul. Jim Scott-who's worked with Johnny Cash, Tom Petty, and Lucinda Williams-produced Gomez's new EP Me & Joe, which features Williams collaborator Doug Pettibone on guitar and Eric Clapton and Jackson Browne accompanist Greg Leisz on pedal steel.
In addition to his new EP release, Max has been instrumental in pulling together the Red River Folk Festival in New Mexico, which featured Chuck Prophet and Shawn Mullins alongside other notable Americana acts.
Gomez first made waves as a songwriter with his song "Rule the World" from his 2013 album of the same name, acclaimed by USA Today and Esquire who named it as one of the best songs of 2013. Soon after, Kiefer Sutherland directed the music video for the single "Run From You."
Though still only in his twenties, Max Gomez has always had the heart of an old soul. As a child, the first songs he learned to sing were originally recorded in the 50s by Johnny Cash. As a teenage guitarist he adopted Big Bill Broonzy as his blues master. And as a budding performer, he apprenticed in the rarefied musical climate of northern New Mexico, where troubadours like Michael Martin Murphey and Ray Wylie Hubbard helped foster a folk and Western sound both cosmic and cowboy.
