Biography

Nathen Maxwell & The Original Bunny Gang
WHITE RABBIT
NEW ALBUM IN STORES NOW

There comes a time in his life when each and every man needs to express himself, and for Nathen Maxwell that time has come. For the past thirteen years Maxwell has been leaving his heart on stage as the bassist for the seminal Celtic rock band Flogging Molly, one of the biggest touring punk acts in the world. An accomplished songwriter in his own right, Maxwell has contributed songs to Flogging Molly albums in years past, but things progressed differently when the band went into the studio to record Float, their most recent release.

“I played these songs for the band and our singer Dave said, “Nate, youíve got your own story and I really think you should record these songs,’” Maxwell explains. “Once I got his blessing I figured it’d be bad karma not to record and release them.”

The tracks on White Rabbit were written over the past ten years spanning from when Flogging Molly were playing weekend gigs until more recent days that have seen the act play over two hundred shows a year. However when the group collectively decided that theyíd be relaxing their grueling tour schedule in 2009, Maxwell knew that this would be the perfect time to put these tracks to tape. “All I’ve got is music: I’ve got no plan B, no wealthy family members and no savings,” he explains. “But I have these songs and this music I’ve been wanting to do for a decadeóand now just seemed like the right time to do it, whereas the last five years haven’t been.” To capture the true spirit of these songs, Maxwell hooked up with his father, who he not only refers to as “his favorite drummer,” but who is also responsible for introducing Nathen to Flogging Molly.
