We are excited to announce Max García Conover's debut performance in Corning!

"Man this is some gorgeous stuff. Conover is a hell of a fingerstyle guitar player and has an arresting vocal style, with a ton of presence." --The Portland Phoenix

"The sound is raw, stripped bare of any computer or studio magic. It’s jarring at first, but the organic sound of one man and his masterful guitar playing makes the songs all the more powerful." --Down East Magazine

"His new CD, "Burrow," is a lovely representation of metaphoric poetry and engaging guitar work mixed with raw, scratchy singing. Not really concerned with hitting perfect notes or using vibrato, Conover goes for a Dylanesque feel, using vocal starkness in contrast to the beauty and flow of his lyrics and guitar playing." --Portland Press Herald

Burrow is the debut album from Max García Conover. Recorded in Max’s attic studio during winter in Maine, these songs are about digging in, or trying to, through the work that we do and the art that we make. A portion of sales of Burrow goes to Evergreen Health Services (formerly AIDS Community Services), a nonprofit working to provide medical services and support to marginalized populations.
