“Golden Vessel has been on our radar for some time now; with his globular, earworm-beats and a seriously enviable visual aesthetic, he’s been a hard one to miss.” – Highsnobiety
Since 2015 Australian songwriter/producer Max Byrne, aka Golden Vessel, has been crafting a unique sound that blends elements of electronic music with hip-hop, RnB and alternative pop, as he continues to explore different songwriting styles and techniques to help create a truly unique and engaging sound. “I want to convey in my music everything I love about music,” says Max Byrne. “Whether it’s incorporating different genres into one song, or different processes and homages to different times.”
In such a short period of time Max Byrne has released two hugely successful EPs (Before Sleep & Right/Side), has done two Australian headline tours, has been main support for Willow Beats and The Kite String Tangle on their national tours, signed an Australasian record deal with Exist Recordings, partnered with New World Artists for Australasian bookings & tours, sign a publishing deal with US agency Ultra Music Publishing, and has collected millions of streams via Spotify & Apple Music for his catalogue of released music.
2018 was a busy year for Golden Vessel. He was involved in writing & producing music for Filous, Benji Lewis, Mallrat, Allday and Cub Sport, as well as a few others that can’t be named just yet. And back on the home-front he released a single in February called ‘Hesitate’ with this good friend and regular collaborator Emerson Leif, which has gone on to be his most successful release to-date with over 6 million streams on Spotify alone. He also began working on his debut album that is now well underway and scheduled for release in mid-2019.
Just recently Golden Vessel gave us two of the album’s lead-singles (‘BIGBRIGHT’ feat Elkkle, E^ST & DUCKWRTH and ‘MOONSTONE’ feat Elkkle & Akurei), impressing many and holding true to his collaborative nature. 2019 will also see Golden Vessel embark on his debut US tour supporting BAYNK in February, just ahead of his debut appearance at SXSW in Austin.
