Max & Brandon
Max Koughan (Singer)
Brandon Hood (Guitar)

Formed in 2015, Max & Brandon are an Americana-style duo born and raised in Charlottetown, PEI. Their heart and soul lyrics paired with blues and folk guitar styles, give a refreshing accompaniment to a traditional style of country music. Their friendship both on and off the stage gives their music a feeling of oneness and allows the audience to be in the moment and truly connect with the songs. They began writing and playing at open mics, benefits and charity events, which eventually led them to playing shows across PEI with bands such as: Big Tilda, Stag & Mane, Stabbing Joy, and Ten Strings & a Goatskin. While they write and perform mainly as a two-piece, they are known, now and then, to bring up other musicians for a full-band experience.

2016 was a big year for the band. Having been chosen as a finalist in the Cavendish Beach “Island Idol” contest, the band earned a set at the 2016 Cavendish Beach Music Festival. For 2017, they look to continue the year playing shows and recording new material with the goal of opening the eyes and hearts of their community and beyond.
