About Max Mandu:

Charlottesville is starting to feel more and more like home to Max Mandu, as he has steadily built his musical profile here over the past few years, but that wasn't always the case. 

Max's musical journey was initially set off by his time teaching English in South Korea and traveling Asia from 2016 - 2019. This bold world of new challenges and experiences inspired Max to continue living life to the fullest and ramp up music once getting back to the U.S. Many of his original songs draw from experiences there, involving themes of growth, personal transformation, and triumph over challenges.

He has been active around Charlottesville and greater Central VA since 2020, with acoustic shows across breweries, wineries, and wedding venues. He was also a lead vocalist for the band 'Book Of Scruff' in 2022, and currently the frontman for the 4-piece rock group 'Streetcar Paradox'. 

Max's original music lies at the crossroads between rock, alternative, indie, and folk. His sound has been described as 'the feeling of a road trip that never ends'! He currently has one full solo album on Spotify and other music platforms, called Ex Transita. 

Catch his showcase at the Southern for some of his most notable tunes including 'Malachi,' 'Sonder Song,' 'Bonnie & Clyde,' and more!
