About Maxim Senin
A software engineer by trade, and also a private pilot, Maxim Senin’s love for music is now a large part of his life and is deeply engraved in his daily thoughts and actions. His preference in music is laid-back rock and a touch of folk with an emphasis on his lyrical composition. Choosing love and love triangles as themes for his music and songs, betrayal and unanswered love looms over and is easily detected in his sound. Aside from love tragically gone wrong, Maxim has a great appreciation for songs that are reflective, with a twist and plot in the story line, and that have hope and humor in them. His music comes both from what he observes around him and emotions within that is vented through his lyrics and musical composition.
Citing influences such as Mark Knopfler, J.J. Cale, and Eric Clapton, Maxim finds himself inspired by the likes of Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Sting, and Roxette while also enjoying the music of other icon artists like Coldplay, Duran Duran, U2, The Who, Grateful dead, and Oasis. Although at this stage in his music career, Maxim has not really played any high profile arena type performances mainly because that’s not really his thing. “I'm not a big fan of large crowds”, states Maxim, I also think that my music, at least at the moment, is to be heard by people on their couches or in their cars, not 10,000-seat stadiums. Although, if I had one dream I’d like to fulfill, I wouldn’t mind playing a duet with Clapton or Sting”.
As a multi-instrumentalist, Maxim played every instrument on his debut EP release “The Taming of the Wolf” including the acoustic guitar, piano, ukulele, harmonica, keyboard, and all percussions. Maxim has great aspirations for the success of the new release. When asked if he could retain his artistic integrity with increased commercial success he replied with no hesitation, “I think yes. I'm open-minded about learning from other artists and listening to friends' advice, but at the same time I think I am on the way of developing my own unique style. That doesn't mean, however, that this style won't evolve over time”.
With his debut EP release The “Taming of the Wolf”, Maxim Senin has only just begun. He has plans to promote the record vigorously and hopes to release a full length album by the end of 2012. The Taming of the Wolf is available for sale at CD Baby and by digital download on iTunes along with many other online distribution outlets.
