Maxwell Biography

Maxwell was born in Brooklyn, New York, on May 23, 1973. When he was just 3 years old, his father died in a plane crash. The experience of losing his father influenced his strong religious background. He spent much of his youth as a loner since he found it difficult mingling with children in his own neighborhood. His fellow classmates nicknamed him "Maxwell House Coffee" and often referred to him as "the quiet nerd who sat at the back of the classroom".

As a loner, young Maxwell spent hours in his bedroom composing a bunch of songs. In crafting the tracks, he was mostly inspired with the traditions of West Indian music he heard inside his home and hip-hop as well as early '80s soul music from the outside. "More than anything I went and found the sounds that I liked," he recalled. "I wasn't necessarily influenced by everything that was around me when I grew up, but having family from four islands in the Caribbean made for a wealth of influences."
