With a genepool from the UK but born and raised in Austria, songwriter/producer Max Hustwick,
who goes by the artist persona happysadmedium, came to Liverpool in 2018 to pursue his passion
for bedroom producing at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. By no means a virtuoso in
any given instrument, he creates a sonic scenery through simple yet effective song writing and
Max, like many other producers his age, idolizes artists such as Frank Ocean, and James Blake.
Relying heavily on the modern mediums that allow musicians to create and write songs from the
comfort of their laptop. It is not possible to place Max´s music in any one box and each production
will walk you through a different landscape, all part of the same universe. Each song is pleasing in
its originality, yet with a familiar thread of his voice and carefully chosen sounds and melodies.
Max endeavours to spark an emotional response and to give the listener a feeling of
comfortable melancholy and escapism. His songs, like the project name suggests,
contain a universal sentiment of the feelings that range from happy to sad and
everything in between.
