Music Scene: Jan. 25–31
Blues singer/songwriter Max Gomez is a storyteller with a twist. In a sense, you — the audience — are an important element in writing his songs.
“The songs I write are not real straightforward. You have to decode them.” Gomez says at maxgomezmusic.com. “I like when the listener has to create their own story, rather than be told what’s happening.”
Gomez will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 25, at KAFM Radio Room, 1310 Ute Ave.
Tickets cost $15.
Gomez grew up splitting his time between the sloping mountains of Taos, N.M., and his family’s ranch on the rolling plains of Kansas, the website says.
“On the ranch, Gomez still lends a hand with chores, but relishes the time he can spend out on the lake practicing the art of fly-fishing. However, it is in Taos where he was ultimately inspired to explore his art and the ethos behind it,” maxgomezmusic.com says.
Gomez released a 10-song album of original material, “Rule the World,” earlier this month, according to a news release.
He also has collaborated with fellow singer-songwriter Shawn Mullins (remember “Lullaby,” from 1998?). The two have written several songs toghether, three of which appeared on Mullins’ recent album “Light You Up.”
