Emerging from a tumultuous period marked by unexpected loss and newfound strength, producer, saxophonist and vocalist Max Swan returns with new album Slow Jail.
NOT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
"I wrote most of it just to straighten myself out; as a pressure release valve for free expression — to use my gift to draw out what I feel deep down and heal myself through the exercise of simply facing it and writing about it."

“This album signals a new start mentally, emotionally and physically. I have the chance to close a dark chapter in my life and begin anew - something many people ask for but never get the opportunity to do.”
