About this project

This is a music project. It's goal is to record and produce not just an album, but a way to get a message out into peoples hands. A message about the change that is going on in the world, about the experiences we as people have and have lost, and to be a productive voice in this world. This isn't just an album. This is about activism, community, sharing experiences and joining forces.

I'm Max Williams, the sole constant member of this band. I'm passionate about music, because I'm passionate about people and the world we live in. The theme of this album is the change that this world is going through, the change that I've been going through, and changes in life in general. These are many shown through questions. The title of the album is The Confidence is in the Questions, as music has become my vehicle of social change and activism. To be fair, it has it's momments of pure feelings, of love and pain and joy, ect. I'm sure there are a few girls mentioned in this album too. But the main themes deal with more universal issues. 

Legion of Sparrows started as just a band, but over the last year or so it's morphed into it's own entity. The concept behind LoS is that if we had a million little 'sparrows', going around trying to help their friends and family with the same causes and purpose, the world would be awesome. Musically, it's a bunch of like minded writers and musicians who I play and write with on songs, in support of those causes.

The funds you all share with me will first go straight into recording, then into the mixing and mastering process; after that, we can hopefully press and duplicate the album into CD form with full artwork and packaging. 

The plan is to get into the studio with David Thornber and Mike Meyer, and have Mike do the producing. He's an amazing producer, and is great to work with. He knows exactly what my music is and how good it could sound, and is who I'd envision working with. If I can get the funds to do so, I know he'd make the album amazing.

For the record (no pun intended), I plan to play shows and tour this year, maybe come out to you and your town. So hit me up!

Idealistically,

Max Williams
