New Mexico singer/songwriter Max Gomez fosters a Western folk sound that’s cosmic, country, and uniquely his own. He grew up in Taos, New Mexico, where he fell under the influence of country blues early on. He received critical acclaim upon the release of his debut album Rule The World (2013, New West Records); and his subsequent EP, Me and Joe (2017, Brigadoon Records), contained a freshly minted classic, “Make It Me,” which has gained over 4 million listeners on Spotify alone.
As a budding performer, Max apprenticed in the rarefied musical micro-climate of northern New Mexico, where troubadours like Michael Martin Murphey and Ray Wylie Hubbard helped foster a Western folk sound both cosmic and country.
He has shared billing on hundreds of stages with stalwarts of the genre like James McMurtry, Buddy Miller, John Hiatt, Patty Griffin, Tommy James & The Shondells, Jeff Beck, and Johnny Depp. Judging by the company he keeps, Gomez is poised to emerge as a prominent voice of Americana’s next generation.  The forthcoming album, Memory Mountain, will release this summer.
The Rifters' new album, The Enchanted World, debuted at #25 on the Roots Music Report’s Top 50 Americana Country Albums Chart. "We are darn proud of this one ourselves, and excited that it’s getting some attention." In fact, Country Standard Time says, “Acoustic music doesn't get any better.”
