Maxado - Upon A Smile EPSKU: BADEP003
Brazilian singer-songwriter Maxado has been making music since the late ‘90s, but it was with his band Firebug that he got the attention of an international audience in the Early Reggae scene.
He has done a lot of collaborating since those three records(2003-2010) throughout Brazil, Europe and the US - most recently on records for David Hillyard in NYC and Smoke & Mirrors Soundsystem in LA.
Equally at home in all three of the early Jamaican styles - Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae - Maxado’s talent lies in his ability to tell a story, whether in English or Portuguese. After Firebug disbanded, Maxado continued working with producer Victor Rice - and this EP bears the fruit of those collaborations.
