Max Powers is a sales lead, utilizing his sales lead background skills in technology, and heads OakTownSoul’s Sync Operations. His first connection to the music scene was in High School, where he threw warehouse parties in LA, spotlighting local DJ’s and artists who wanted to perform. Some of his early projects helped define his musical mission, such as producing and recording the Hoop Bus’ first mixtape, recording “Honest in 10Land” (OakTownSoul’s in-house artist’s first mixtape, “Look Up”) in his dorm at UC Berkeley in 2018, and three self-released singles. With influences from Noah “40” Shebib and Disclosure, continuing his journey in music was a no-brainer as his love for developing talented artists grew stronger. Now he’s the lead production engineer at OakTownSoul, where he plans to release original music and create long-standing relationships in the music industry to help give OakTownSoul the spotlight it deserves.
INSPIRATIONS: Kid Cudi, Noah “40” Shebib, Disclosure, and James Blake
FUN FACTS: On the bus on the way to school, I would tune out the LA noise and relax listening to music with my headphones. Very peaceful memories.
