Hello, I’m Shane Maxwell and welcome to DIGIVMUSIC!

Hello, I am an independent musician and formed DIGIVMUSIC in April 2020 while in the Covid19 lockdown. This all began after I accepted a challenge from my father!

So a little bit about me, I am multi-creative and have been an evolving artist in mixed media, digital graphics and visual arts. Professionally my work involves using technology and I have collectively over 30years of experience.

Musically, I have been a drummer since my teens and played in our family band, comprising of my father (lead guitarist/singer) and my brother (keyboards/guitarist). Together we play music from the 1950’s to the 1990’s covering a wide range of genres. Music has always been a large part of growing up in the south coast of UK.

So back to that challenge, in March 2020 was for many of us a testing time. My father asked me to compose a song, not something I have ever done before or studied. So gladly accepting the challenge, I picked out electronic synthesizer music as it is so deep rooted – Tangerine Dream, Jean-Michel Jarre, Hans Zimmer to name a few! Next I got to work with designing my music production process and decided to opt towards the electronic musician route, this is operating virtual musical instruments through a midi-controller piano keyboard and recording onto into a Digital Audio Workstation or DAW for short. Oh and I also started learning the piano. In July 2020 I created my first song called Solitude, listen here. Then in December 2020 I released ‘When Lunar Sleeps’, my first mini EP Album, a short story of sick Earth marking Covid, the whole album is dedicated to electronic space music.

My music is evolving all the time. I feel that my inspiration comes from myself as an artist and feeds off from my natural flair based on environmental influences. In a time of unprecedented unrest, I continue to compose anti-stress music. Labelling my music is a strange experience, I associate my music with the electronic ambient genre, but I crossover to orchestral, light and dark techno, I feel this will evolve as time goes by.

Since creating and putting out new music releases, I have gained a following on social media such as Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and SoundCloud . I am delighted with knowing someone enjoys listening to my work and I find it highly inspiring to be able to produce so that people can enjoy for their own purposes.

Thank you for visiting my web site and listening to my music. Feel free to contact me on the below form.

With best wishes,
Shane Maxwell
Crossover Composer / Music Producer

A special note of thanks to my father, who set me the challenge to create my own music. I would not have started this magical journey!
