The Max O'Rourke Trio

Thursday - December, 06 @ 9:00pm

Guitarist, composer, and arranger Max O’Rourke was born and raised in West Rutland, Vermont. His interest in guitar began when he was six and has since progressed into a lifelong journey. While touring around the world with other bands, he has built up a significant amount of original work and is now leading his own project. His debut album Disquiet draws from his roots in gypsy jazz and also marks the start of his love for the electric guitar.

The album is influenced by a broad variety of genres including gypsy and traditional jazz, blues, pop, rock, and impressionism. What ties this stylistically diverse collection of tracks together is their inspiration. As the title suggests, the music is inspired by anxiety, loss, and depression. Through the musical resolution of these feelings, one finds ease and ultimately lays the disquiet to rest.
