Music R&B artist Maxwell pictures (pic) and photo gallery, albums covers pictures.
Born: May 23, 1973 Brooklyn, New York, USA.
He played an important role in the development of the subgenre of neo-soul music.
Maxwell is his middle name; he has chosen to keep his first and last name private out of safety for his family. He was born to a Puerto Rican father and a black Caribbean mother. The loss of his father at the age of three in plane crash (he was returning to his native Puerto Rico for a visit), greatly impacted him as a person and as an artist. Maxwell first performed in a Baptist church, and was heavily inspired by the work of artists such as Marvin Gaye and Prince. Maxwell began his interest in music at the age of 17 by writing songs. He eventually got a record deal with Columbia Records in 1994 when he was 21 years old.
According to Billboard, Maxwell was to release a studio album on Columbia Records in February 2007 under the title 'Black Summers' Night'. Recent news from Maxwell's official website announced that the new material will be released as a trilogy, beginning with a first volume in 2007, followed by two subsequent discs in 2008 and 2009. As of February 13, 2007, neither the first single, nor the trilogy's first album have a release date.
On the morning of February 14, 2007, Maxwell posted a blog on his MySpace page, explaining the delay. He also posted an audio message apologizing to fans for the delay. The first single from the upcoming CD could be heard playing in the background.
