Meet Max: Yellow, The Colour

“Music has always been a big part of my life. I started playing the piano when I was five and learned how to play the drums a few years later. But I was never satisfied just copying what other people wrote - I really wanted to create my own music. So at the age of 13 I finally decided to learn more about song writing and music production and I have been obsessed ever since. For a long time, I only produced for other people - writing film scores, recording my bands and making Hip Hop beats, among other things. This summer, I eventually decided to start my first solo project: Yellow, The Colour. I spent two months in Berlin and tried to blend the unique air of the city with all the different influences that shaped my taste in music over the years in order to create my very own style. My first EP “A Summer In Berlin” was recently released on all major music platforms and I am excited to see where it goes from here.

Finding enough time to make music in between my studies and my social life is definitely not easy. But in the end, you have to take the time to do things that matter the most to you - and I am determined to release another one or two albums over the next two years while doing the CEMS program. Having gained some experience in strategy consulting, I can imagine eventually working at a company like Spotify that is shaping the future of the music industry. That way, I could use the knowledge I gained at NOVA and combine it with my experience creating and publishing my own music.”

You can listen to “A Summer in Berlin” by Yellow, The Colour on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer & co. or buy it on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and many more.
