Meet The MAX-D Advisors

Mick Fleetwood

“MAX-D restored my faith in the future of audio!”

Throughout the years Fleetwood Mac went through many personnel changes, and in 1974 Fleetwood met, and added, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham to the lineup. This proved to be a magical combination.

In 1975, with the release of this lineup’s first album, FLEETWOOD MAC, the band quickly became an American household name. But it was their 1977 multi-Grammy award winning release RUMOURS that today still stands as one of the biggest selling albums of all time having sold over 40 million copies worldwide.

It was also under Fleetwood’s guidance that Fleetwood Mac capitalized on their success with ground breaking world tours and further innovative releases, among them TUSK, MIRAGE, and TANGO IN THE NIGHT.

Antonina Armato

“Once every artist hears what MAX-D can do for their music, they will want to utilize this incredible technology.”

People may think it’s easy to define Rock Mafia. A quick glance on Wikipedia tells us that Rock Mafia is one of the biggest pop production teams in the world, with over 50 million albums and 25 million singles sold, along with over 2 billions views on Youtube alone, a seemingly endless pop discography spanning the last decade with hits from Mariah Carey to Miley Cyrus to Selena Gomez.

Upon closer inspection, however, there are a few surprises, One may not know Rock Mafia also wrote and produced some of the biggest records on active rock radio over the past two years, including Sick Puppies’ number 1 single that ruled the Top 10 airwaves for over six months, “You’re Going Down,” to “Odd One,” “Maybe,” and “Riptide.”

Furthermore, following the reproduction and remix by Rock Mafia, Billy Ray Cyrus’ hit song, “Ready, Set, Don’t Go” peaked at number 2 on the country charts.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of them all was Rock Mafia’s debut release as an artist, “The Big Bang.” The hit song sold over 500,000 in digital downloads independently, gained over 100 million streams as well as over 15 million views of their video on You Tube.

Tim (TJ) and Antonina are both full of passion for music and constantly speak of the culture, lifestyle, and making music to connect with millions of people. Clearly, they’re less interested in finding formulas than they are making history.

Fred Walecki

“My family has been providing musicians with the best equipment and instruments we could get our hands on since 1947, but never have I heard audio sound as good is it does with Max Sound’s HD process.”

Since the 1960′s, Westwood Music has been at the center of Rock and Roll. The stories of Fred Walecki are well known in the Global music scene, like the time the Rolling Stones went to see Sonny and Brownie at the Ash Grove, driven by Fred in his mom’s station wagon. Or when Bernie Leadon promised to make good on a Westwood Music charge for his new band, which he had come up with the questionable name of “The Eagles.”

Years ago Fred Walecki was diagnosed with throat cancer, and because of the strong relationships he had in the music business, long time friend Glyn Johns (Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, etc.) formed a benefit concert held in his name to raise funds for the substantial medical costs.

Due to the response they had to added a second day. Close friends and performers at this concert included Don Henley, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Brown, Randy Meisner, Spinal Tap, Jeff Bridges, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Warren Zevon, Ry Cooder, Albert Lee, and Colin Hay.
