Is Maxwell the Marvin Gaye of the ’90s?
But Vanity Fair also recently compared him to Marie Kondo.
Maxwell (whose full name is Gerald Maxwell Rivera) helped define neo-soul with lilting vocals, laid-back instrumentals and smoldering sensuality.
Now, he’s re-releasing a series of rare EPs, the last of which comes out later this week.
Listen to one here:
He told Vanity Fair about his approach to making music:
“I’ve always been into putting my head down and putting the time in,” the neo-soul singer Maxwell said in a recent interview. He was talking about preparations for an upcoming tour and why he’s keeping its details mum for a while, but he quickly realized that he could be talking about his entire career. “That’s why I go away so long, at times, because I just know what it takes to get into it. I’d rather not do it at all, than do it half-a—d.”
We catch up with him about his songs and his plans to tour this summer.
