Maxwell ’50 Intimate Nights Live’ North American Tour is On
Maxwell has been credited with helping to shape what has been termed the "neo soul" movement by composing music since the age of 17. He has feelingly described R&B as being "the perfect combination of computerized instrumentation with a live feel". Since 1991 he has been sharing his talent on the New York City club scene. He has been labeled the next Prince" by a writer from Vibe and a sex symbol by Wendy Williams on her show.
He recorded his debut Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite in the mid-1990s. On April 20, 1996, the album made its chart debut at number 38 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The album spawned four singles, "...Til the Cops Come Knockin'", "Ascension (Don't Ever Wonder)", "Sumthin' Sumthin'", "Suitelady (The Proposal Jam)", all considerable hits peaking as high as number 11.
Maxwell's third album - Now was released on August 14, 2001, on Columbia Records in the United States. Now received generally positive reviews from music critics and also served as Maxwell's last release before quietly entering a self-imposed break of almost seven-years without any performance.
On April 7, 2016, Maxwell released his first solo single in 6 years titled "Lake by the Ocean", and also revealed his long-awaited fifth album blackSUMMERS'night.
The writer Carol Brennan cited him, along with the Fugees, D'Angelo and Tony Rich, as neo soul musician that "exhibited the identifying characteristics of this new breed of R&B artists: lyrics that give voice to intense personal expression, creative control over the music, and an unexpectedly successful debut."
