Max Berend


Max Berend de Boer is a Swiss-Dutch singer-songwriter, lyricist and slam poet. Born and raised in Davos, he now lives in Bern and St. Gallen, Switzerland. He took his first and second forename as his artistic alias, so he could always tell his musical stories with authenticity and from the bottom of his heart.

In April 2020, he started a collaboration with producer and musician Patrick Vido on his debut album called ‘Red Little Paper Kite’ in their artistic home base, Bern,and his childhood home, Davos.

With this debut album he wants to invite his listeners onto a journey to their own personal stories, connecting them with themselves. Because music speaks an universal language to different personalities and realities.

With ‘Red Little Paper Kite’,Max Berend shares his stories with their warmly produced, acoustic and folk infused indie pop-rock music. He lets the stars tell their stories. Dreams about the future on a swing. Plants a flower for every friend and the unknown end-of -life. Drinks a Jenever to his loved ones, those who remember him, and those that have forgotten him. Writes a letter to his father, his best friend. Opens an umbrella for a woman in the rain. Walks one last time through his grandfather’s garden up to the dunes, where he meets Martha, his grandmother and finally also himself.
