Max Kutner

Max Kutner ( is a guitarist and composer originally from Las Vegas, NV. He began playing guitar at the age of 11 after becoming enamored with a cassette of Will Smith’s “Big Willie Style”. Shortly thereafter, he discovered and devoured myriad artists through voraciously watching MTV. Also he spent hours listening to his grandfather’s record collection. Max’s grandfather was a performing saxophonist, singer and bandleader in New York for nearly 40 years. Max also loitered in various record stores where he would often sample nearly half a dozen albums a day for the bulk of his adolescence. His tastes and interests were augmented further during his studies at University of Nevada, Reno and especially at the renowned California Institute of the Arts where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in 2009 and Master’s of Fine Art in 2011 respectively.
