Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! We've been waiting for this one, and the cat is finally out of the sack... That's right, local showman and raconteur D.C. Maxwell's debut album Lone Rider is on the way! From his triumphant sold out shows with his 12-piece band, to supporting Future Islands without releasing a single note, and with Rolling Stone saying of the man, "a preacher with a point to prove, he channels Townes Van Zandt and Nick Cave", it's clear this is no ordinary artist. Born from a love of storytelling songwriters such as Lee Hazlewood and Scott Walker, this lovingly crafted new long player may well be just what you and I need in our lives right now. - Flying Out

D.C. Maxwell is an alt-country singer-songwriter from Tāmaki Makaurau, New Zealand. With the frenetic energy of a punk preacher, Maxwell puts a new spin on the 1970s outlaw country of Lee Hazlewood, Townes Van Zandt and the unconventional kiwi songwriting of Chris Knox and Don Mcglashan.

A troubadour, a magnetic performer, but foremost a storyteller, Maxwell’s live show see’s him physically embody each of his song’s characters with passion. The mosaic of his songs creates a world of love and loss in roadside motel rooms, and the inner lives of small town dreamers majestic as the plains.

His debut album, Lone Rider is 10 songs of love, anguish, and horses. Each track is a vivid tale, covering stories of bank robbers, horse thieves and grieving lovers. Produced by Peter Ruddell (Sulfate, Wax Chattels) and featuring a cast of premier New Zealand musician such as Hariet Ellis (Na Noise), David Harris (Princess Chelsea), Elizabeth Stokes (The Beths), Dave Khan (Marlon Williams, Reb Fountain), J-Y Lee (Avantdale Bowling Club) and Charmian Keay.
