Max Giesinger, born on October 3rd, 1988, showed his musical talent early on. Because his parents separated, he grew up alone with his mother from the age of four. Max practiced playing the guitar every day. While other parents had problems getting their children interested in music, Ms. Giesinger found it difficult to separate her son from his beloved instrument. At the age of 13 he already had his first band, which was called “Deadly Punks”. Before high school he was a member of the Bud Spencer Group and Sovereign Point. In one year he was on stage 70 times. This burden did not prevent him from passing his Abitur at the Gymnasium in Karlsbad. After graduating from high school, he was interested in taking part in the Work & Travel program. In this way he ended up in Australia and New Zealand. As a musician on the streets of Sydney, he had to work hard to make a living. Back in Germany, he wanted to study at the Baden-Württemberg Pop Academy in Mannheim. Unfortunately, he failed the entrance exam. The attempt to learn a righteous profession also failed. He broke off his training as a bank clerk because wearing a suit and tie every day did not correspond to his attitude towards life. After these experiences, he devoted himself entirely to his music. In 2011 he took part in the casting show “The Voice of Germany”. Through the calls of the spectators, he got into the semifinals and took fourth place after the final. Here came success with a cover version of the song “Fix you” by Coldplay.
With his success, Max Giesinger’s level of recognition grew and he became a sought-after artist. Disagreements in the cooperation with his label lead to Max Giesinger separating from it. He had to put his first album on the market on his own. For this purpose he started a crowdfunding campaign and thus financed his first album “Learn to Run”. This work became a great success. The second album “Der Junge, der rennt” was released in 2016. This time Max Giesinger received support from the label “BMG” and this cooperation continued to grow. He experienced his real breakthrough to become a sought-after star in 2016. Songs like “wenn sie tanzt” or “80 million” became catchy tunes and Max Giesinger became a welcome guest on many television shows. In 2018 he became a coach for the “Voice Kids” A year later he was appointed a jury member for “The Masked Singer”. In 2018 he released his third album called “The Journey”.

In general, he spends a lot of time on social media, such as Facebook, Instagram, etc. Max Giesinger always announces the latest news about himself on his website.
The breakthrough came with his song “80 million” and after Max Giesinger changed the lyrics a bit for the 2016 European Football Championship, the album reached number 2 in the top ten.
