Dale Maxfield & The Silver Hammers / Bio

Dale Maxfield began his recording career in 1995 as the song-writing singer in the band Caged Autumn, releasing "Glimmer" in 1996. The album was recorded at Keywood Production Services in Saint Louis, where Dale worked as an intern and recording engineer.

Since moving to Kansas City in 1998, Dale has released 4 solo albums and fronted various incarnations of the performing groups that share his name. The sound of the live and recorded music has evolved from progressive rock roots into something direct, accessible, and still deliberately complex- much to the joy of more discerning listeners. The latest, "Stratosphere" is a power-pop gem and Dale's best yet.

The Silver Hammers are Dale's longtime collaborators who share the billing on the "Stratosphere" album. Bassist Stephanie Shelton has also recorded and performed as a member of Velvet Freeze, Venus Envy, and Phantasmagoria- to name a few. Dave Handley was also the drummer in Velvet Freeze, and currently performs with the group Robot Monkey Madman. Dale's youngest brother John Maxfield, a prolific artist in his own right is a genetically matched harmonizer and stellar lead guitarist.

Dale Maxfield has made his entire catalog of albums available for free at his website, www.dalemaxfield.com. He is also a member of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and SoundCloud. Recreationally, Dale is an avid board and video gamer and lover of especially terrible movies. He currently lives in Lenexa, Kansas with his family.
