Max Berend


Behind Max Berend are the two independent artists Max Berend de Boer (music and lyrics) and Patrick Vido (music and production). In April 2020, the two musicians started their collaboration on their debut album Red Little Paper Kite in their artistic home base Bern, Switzerland.

The artist Max Berend is the Swiss-Dutch singer-songwriter Max Berend de Boer. Born and raised in Davos, he now lives in Bern.

Patrick Vido is the Swiss musician and producer of Slovakian descent behind Max Berend. Born and raised in the region of Lucerne, he lives with his family in Bern.

With this their concept album ‘Red Little Paper Kite’, they share the stories of Max Berend with their warm, acoustic and folk infused indie pop-rock music. They want to invite their listeners onto a journey to their own personal stories, connecting them with themselves and maybe even a better version of themselves. Because music speaks an universal language to different personalities and realities. 

Max Berend de Boer


Music brings me to places, persons, memories and emotions. In short: it brings me to my own stories. These stories help me to connect to myself and to life itself. Because I learned that it needs the bright as well as the dark sides, so life can happen for you. Through music, I found faith in myself and a better version of myself. And I hope that with our music, others can find this connection for themselves.

Patrick Vido


Music has never really been a choice for me - it just so happened to be the one thing that made live tolerable. Being stranded in this well-mannered, all-consuming neck of the woods, I was constantly pushed away from music while simultaneously gravitating towards it whenever there was time to breath. Eventually, the tragedy that is life all comes down to committing and paying one price or not committing and paying another and so it is you that chooses the cross you deem worth carrying by accepting the suffering that goes with it. Still open for all possible outcomes and mourning the limits of my abilities I do the one thing that makes sense.
