Maxwell in the House

Revisiting Tavis Smiley's 1998 interview
with musician Maxwell

I'm currently researching a post that will provide an update on singer-songwriter Maxwell.

As regular readers of this blog may know, I've previously written about Maxwell and his music (see, for instance, here and here) as he is, without question, my favorite male vocalist. Back in October of 2008, I was fortunate enough to see him in concert here in Minneapolis (For my pictures of this event, click here.).

Anyway, while researching on the Internet I came across an interview with Maxwell on YouTube that I thought I'd share this evening. It's from November 17, 1998, and features Maxwell being interviewed by BET Talk host Tavis Smiley.

This interview took place just after the release of Maxwell's second album, Embrya . . . and, as you'll see, it's a wonderfully insightful conversation with a great artist who refreshingly remains a very humble human being. Enjoy!
