Singer-songwriter Max Ater will release his new EP next month.

Small Town is scheduled to be released October 12 via Prudential Records.  The five-song EP features, which features his current hit songs ‘Light Up This Town’ and  ‘Easy,’ can be pre-ordered online now via Amazon.

‘Easy’ can be streamed online now via Spotify.  The song’s video is streaming now via YouTube.

Ater talked about the creation of both singles in a recent interview, explaining each song has its own unique lyrical theme.

“I’d consider my crowning achievement as a songwriter so far to be my single, ‘Easy,'” Ater said.  “I wrote it at a really tough time in my life, and it’s a testament to what happens when I let my life flow onto paper, which is surprisingly rare to achieve.  This tune however, just came to me and watching [producer] Karl Anderson lay a unique musical foundation under the lyrics was the perfect way to wrap it all up.  Other tunes were much more time-consuming and downright challenging.  ‘Light Up This Town’ started in the studio with just a kick, snare and a simple piano line.  I knew the song would be a love song, but also an anthem to life in Maine.  Finding the story took months.  There are some tunes where I have had to look outside my life for inspiration and widen my perspective enough to absorb what I might not know.  It takes a surprising amount of brain power to find the perfect lyrics that have the promise of connecting with my fans.”

A native of Maine, the up-and-coming pop/country star claims artists, such as Norah Jones, Jamie Cullum and John Mayer as influences for his own work. He first rose to fame after winning his home state’s “Maine’s Got Talent!” competition.

He released his debut EP Up ‘Till Now in 2013. Three years later, Ater took the top spot in the “Maine’s Soundoff 2016” competition. Now he looks forward to the release of Small Town and the future.
