Sons of Maxwell
Origin: Halifax, Nova Scotia
With an impressive discography and performance resume, including several industry awards and nominations, it can definitely be said that Halifax-based Sons of Maxwell have come a long way from Northern Ontario. The brothers began singing together while attending university and began a full-time music career soon after graduation. Don and Dave Carroll have done prolific work in a relatively short time and have developed a large, dedicated fan base. S.O.M has released several well-received all-original albums, music videos and have toured extensively, both nationally and abroad.
The strength of the duo is built upon its diversity. Don and Dave are true entertainers. That fact is what sets them apart and has made them so popular with such a broad spectrum of people. More than once it has been said: “these guys do it all.” Their musical performance is always evocative and their onstage sibling interplay is disarmingly warm, alluring and often downright hilarious! Dave writes songs that bring laughter and tears to the audience. The brothers (along with a talented back-up band) deliver Dave’s powerful and thought-provoking lyrics in an interesting blend of musical styles best described as pop/folk. Ever present are their unique, brilliant vocal styles and harmonies for which they are well known.
From concert halls to corporate shows, Sons of Maxwell are continually a hit with audiences of all ages. S.O.M have played venues across Canada, including music halls and listening rooms, with extensive shows in Atlantic and Western Canada, and of late, have been making more appearances in the US (Maine, Nebraska and most recently, at the Milwaukee Irish Festival in August 2009). They have toured China, given exclusive performances on Carnival Cruise, performed in the Dominican Republic, and completed three tours in Germany. The outstanding audience response and rave reviews (available on request) speak for themselves. The perpetual tour continues...
