"Dave has always been one of the most amazing piano players I've ever heard. " - Bonnie Raitt

"David Maxwell plays with fire and soul. He keeps the spirit of Otis Spann alive." - James Cotton

David Maxwell has amassed an enormous resume throughout the years playing piano with some of the greatest and most well-known musicians in the blues, including John Lee Hooker, Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy, Freddie King, Muddy Waters, James Cotton, Hubert Sumlin and Otis Rush, among others.

David won a Grammy in 1997 - James Cotton “Deep in the Blues” (Verve). He has been nominated for a handful of Grammy Awards through his contributions to other artists’ albums. David has also been nominated for several WC Handy awards. He has played in major festivals, clubs and concert halls throughout the US and has worked in Europe, Asia and Japan. This past summer, David and his group played at the Montreal Jazz and the Ottawa Blues Festivals.

David’s style encompasses elements of the blues and jazz, but he is best known for his soulful virtuosity and unmatched ability to reach the heart of post-war Chicago Blues. Through his work, he has gained the respect of artists, critics and fans, and has established a reputation for being one of the great modern blues pianists.
