'Time Away' EP
September 16th, 2020: singer-producer Maxo Pardo releases his second solo EP, ‘Time Away’, featuring seven feel-good tracks to end the summer.
Maxo’s unique flow and delivery compliment an eclectic collection of beats blending contemporary R&B and live instrumentation. ‘Time Away’ refers to his five years spent away from his hometown of Chicago, and serves as a farewell ode to Boston, where he had solidified his place in the local music community. The project features several Boston-bred artists and musicians, including Roxbury’s Alejandro Blanco, band leader Jonah Francese, up-and-coming rappers YM and Taurus, and was mixed and mastered at The Bridge and Sound Stage by audio engineer Mertz in Cambridge, MA.
Featuring two of his own productions (‘Feelings’ & ‘For My Baby’), Maxo’s skills as an arranger also shine throughout the project, with his arrangement and addition of live instruments and back-up vocalists which bring the tracks to life.
