After a hugely successful first series, MAX’S highest rating local production for 2017, Studio Max, will return for a second season of intimate and exclusive concerts.
Recording artists from across the country and around the globe will perform in a series of raw, personal, studio gigs, where MAX viewers will be treated to unique acoustic performances of the artist’s greatest hits and more. Guests will also speak candidly about the stories behind their music and give rare anecdotes about how they came to be.
Fraser Stark, Group Channel Manager of Foxtel’s Arts & Music channels said,
“MAX is the TV destination for Great Music and the Music Greats who make the hits. In season 2 of Studio MAX we are privileged to be allowed intimate access to a cross section of four artists just as wonderful and eclectic as the channel and its fans. The Script, Ian Moss, Daryl Braithwaite and Vance Joy – we are humbled by each for giving us the chance to showcase some of their best-loved material as well as some revealing and unexpected insights into the artists and their creative processes.”
Beginning on Sunday February 4 at 10am, Studio Max Series 2 will premiere with one of Ireland’s most popular groups of all time, The Script – whose hits like ‘Hall of Fame’, and ‘Superheroes’ saw the band soar to the top of the charts around the world.
On Sunday February 11 at 10am original Aussie front man Daryl Braithwaite, who won numerous awards as the lead singer of 70’s pop band Sherbet, and as a successful solo artist, will perform a selection of his biggest songs including 1990’s iconic ‘Horses’ and the summer anthem ‘As The Days Go By.’
Following Daryl on February 18 at 10am, ARIA Award-winner and Cold Chisel guitarist Ian Moss will also thrill viewers with a set of Australian classics like ‘Tuckers Daughter’ and ‘Telephone Booth’, as well as new material from his self-titled album ‘Ian Moss’ out on March 2.
Singer/songwriter Vance Joy will be the final act to appear in Studio Max on Sunday February 25. Along with his platinum selling hits ‘Riptide’, ‘Mess is Mine’ and ‘Lay it on Me’, Vance will preview music from his new studio albumNation of Two, available February 23.
Encore screenings of every performance will air the same evening at 10pm, and will be available to watch after their premiere screening from Foxtel’s on demand library, or streamed on Foxtel Now.
