Max Jury may have been brought up in Iowa, but the songwriter currently calls London home.
In a way, this suits him. There's a wandering quality to his work, with those perfectly formed hymns drifting from topic to topic.
As if to compound matters the songwriter's debut album was recorded in New York, working alongside hip-hop producer Inflo.
Out now, Clash is able to trail Max Jury's debut full length with new cut 'Love That Grows Old'.
It's a beautifully constructed, tender lament, almost McCartney-esque in its ability to match melody virtuosity with complete emotional nakedness.
Tune in now.
