Max Wright is a creative promoter, music counselor, and a Latin Grammy awarded musician. After studying Theatre and History of Theatre at the BRIT School of Performing Arts in London and later Contemporary Theatre and Music at Dartington College of Arts in Devon (UK) Maxwell decided to pursue his professional career within the music industry in the city of Barcelona (Spain) where he became an integral part of several bands of national and international prestige. For over a decade, Maxwell toured the world on some of the most exciting festivals and legendary music venues (including Glastonbury, Sydney Opera House, New York Central Park, North Sea Jazz Festival, Womad, Roskilde, Lowlands, Rototom, etc) as a permanent member of the music group 'Ojos de Brujo', with whom he won several awards: a Latin Grammy in 2008, a second nomination in 2011, a BBC Award in 2004, a Premios de la música and twice the Premios Impala. He has also recorded in studio sessions for acclaimed songwriter and composer Nitin Sawhney and bands such as 'Imam Baildi', '08001', 'Nubla', 'The Frtizgeralds' and many more. Other musical experience includes collaborating live with bands such as London's 'Asian Dub Foundation' or the Paris-Berlin duo, 'Okou', as well as directing many musical workshops in Germany, Brazil, France, UK, Spain, and Bulgaria. In recent years, Max launched his company Royal Sonora, dedicated to providing original musical content for advertising on TV, soundtracks in film, and artist curation for live events. Max completed a Master in Music Business and Global Entertainment in 2014 at Berklee College of Music, in its international campus in Valencia (Spain), where he since works as Senior Coordinator for the International Career Center. His thesis while at Berklee was to develop the TEDxBerkleeValencia conferences during four consecutive editions as the creative director, whilst combining his role as founder and director of the Formentera Jazz and the Menorca Groove Festivals, both held in the Balearic Islands, Spain.
