„A book in my left and a drink in my right. How could I miss a single thing in my life.“
Mojo Island, Your Song For Me

Maxime Shakir's lyrics are about the search for love and adventure; about forcing each other to take the first step in a dark bar or just to clean out the closet to make room for a new beginning.

The Berlin singer Maxime and the guitarist Florian Brühl are musically floating between Motown melodies and Neo-Soul. In the arrangements of the seven-piece live band, every note is played with heart by hand. The interaction between the musicians and the audience ensures that each stage performance creates a unique and emotionally charged atmosphere of soul, funk and Motown.

The soul band from Berlin, founded in July 2017, was able to convince their audience live both in the Berlin bar scene and at various open-air festivals in Potsdam and with the EP "Until We See The Shore".
