...roots'n'funk and blues'n'rock from the swamps...

BIOGRAFIA
MAX PIERI aka ROUGH MAX - bassista, cantante, autore e produttore - sale la prima volta in pedana durante una blues jam a Viterbo. Dopo un breve apprendistato alla chitarra, si trasferisce a Caserta, frequenta la scena rock cittadina, lasciando tracce discografiche fino a metà anni '90.
Conclusa la parentesi rock, matura il ritorno alle origini, imbraccia di nuovo il basso, riscopre il blues e ne fa uno stile di vita. Inizia a cimentarsi nella veste di cantante e autore, realizzando dischi con tutte le bands in cui milita. Partecipa a festival e rassegne attraverso tutta la penisola e suona con diversi artisti della scena blues nazionale e internazionale (Blue Stuff, Gary Allegretto, David Hartley, Complanare Blues Band, PG Petricca).
Dal 2015 inizia a proporsi in prima persona e con un salto oltre le barriere ottiene sintesi e cesura negli STEAMROLLERS, musicisti corsari tanto spregiudicati quanto singolari per tenere radici piantate nel blues e interpretarlo in maniera trasversale e picaresca.
