His tip for future generations: be curious, be passionate, create to create.
Create Music With Friends
Warmth and compassion are the skills everyone should practice in the industry. According to the star producer, a lot of people are in this business solely to make money. Sure, it is a great way to get out of the struggle. However, he firmly believes that real magic takes place when you make music with your friends. These friends are the artists, and they have hidden music. As long as you have fun making the music, it will never be work for you. When you make music with friends, you want to break the barriers. Thus, you will always one-up your performance and also synchronize perfectly with the artist. That’s what makes it cool.
A Never Give Up Attitude

Alongside Nick Mira, the team worked to mix pre-recorded songs with an array of producers. Ultimately, it led to the success of the number one record album with multiple platinum and gold records. It rose to win Grammy, and Max Lord was one of the receivers for the prestige.
His incredible track record and connection with top artists will certainly lead him to higher demands and unlimited possibilities. The future certainly looks bright for the star who achieved so much within only 3 years.
