Maxwell Kozen - the lead singer of his eponymously named band KOZEN - has solo material outside of the band that leans into his singer-songwriter and electronic tendencies. KOZEN itself started as an outgrowth from Max's solo project, taking on an identity of its own as more musicians joined.
Apart from the group, however, Max has continued to pursue music in other avenues. During his pursuit of his masters degree (in Divinity/Theology), Max worked part time as the music pastor at One Place Fellowship in Berrien Springs, MI. This involved coordinating the music for the church, mentoring new musicians, and also writing a handful of songs and making original arrangements of familiar worship material to augment the church services. Some of this material may be officially released at a later date.
Max has also done a small but noteworthy amount of session work for other musicians, and can be heard on various recordings from a handful of Toronto hip-hop artists. He is also a capable producer and has worked on a number of collaborative or commissioned projects.
