Since eight years of age, French composer and musician Max Sokolinski has played the guitar, bass, piano and drums.

At 23 years of age, he packed up his life and moved to Los Angeles, to pursue a career in music. There he played live for various artists such as Daniel Johnston as well as his sister, actress and musician Soko, whom he still plays guitar for to these days.

It was also there that he started to compose. Firstly with Mathieu Chedid with whom he wrote several songs for his album “il” and secondly for himself and his solo project that was yet to come.

In 2013 whilst touring across Europe Max decided to base himself in Paris.

He met Clara Luciani and formed with her the band Hologram.

He also met esteemed composer Michael Stevens (Composer for Clint Eastwood’s films Million Dollar Baby, Grand Torino to name a few) with whom he started working.

Max has since scored several short films, campaigns and documentaries independently.

In 2016 he met the iconic French singer Christophe and after working with him on his most recent album “Les vestiges du chaos” Max went on to play guitar live for him.

In 2018 he started a trio made of harp, drums and himself on bass, mixing classical, jazz and rock music.

In 2019, he started the band "Bruises" with Adah Jungk. The duo mixes new wave influances with electro-pop music, and touch of trip hop and psychedelic rock.
