Americana roots duo Mark Viator & Susan Maxey perform in Austin and the western United States. Taking turns singing lead and harmony, the pair weaves tight arrangements of Viator’s well-crafted lyrics and accomplished guitar work with Maxey’s soulful voice.
Together Mark Viator & Susan Maxey put on a show that reflects their dynamic relationship and the paths they have traveled. The couple joined forces in the early 1990s, after a chance encounter at the legendary Kerrville Folk Festival. Viator’s bayou beginnings combine with the influence of contemporary songwriters to create a gumbo of original Americana music. Raised on classic country twang, Maxey broadens her voice to encompass strains of Kate Wolf and Townes Van Zandt.
Look for Mark Viator & Susan Maxey in 2012 as they travel to support These Arms and Wire & Wood, new releases produced by Viator at Rambleheart Studio in Austin.
