Max Stone rolls with Ce'Cile

Friday, May 05, 2017

FORMER X Factor UK contestant Max Stone has been a lifetime lover of reggae music. He gained the hearts of fans worldwide after covering two of Bob Marley's hits, No Woman Nuh Cry and Turn Your Lights Down Low, before his run ended on the 2015 staging of the televised series.

He's however hoping to make his name on the local scene with his single Never Been Loved, featuring Ce'Cile.

“I have always been a fan of Ce'Cile. She possesses raw dancehall/reggae talent and I just had to work with her. My team reached out to her management to request collaboration and after I sent my demo; she wrote her part,” said Max Stone.

Never Been Loved is produced by British producer Dave Goody.

“Jamaica is the ground on which reggae music stands and it is important that, no matter where in the world you are, you take your music to its roots in order to master your craft. The single will be available on iTunes in coming months and I know the fans will love it,” he said.

The track, which will be officially released in summer, will have an accompanying music video slated to be shot on location in the UK and Jamaica.

Stone, who is also working on his debut album Keep Rising, said he is in negotiation with a major film company in The UK about doing the soundtrack on a British film.

“Many doors are opening for me. This album was produced by D Goody and Grammy-winning producer Jazzwad. I am sure it will be something eye-opening and thought-provoking for all my listeners,” Stone added.

Among his other releases are The River, I'm Sorry, Lavender, and Sun In My Eyes.
