Maeson’s music, a tell-it-like-it-is sort of alt rock that often confronts self-doubt head-on, has really resonated with fans. There’s a bit of a macabre story behind the title of the star’s debut album, Bank on the Funeral. As Maeson explained it in a recent Facebook post, “I’ve been through what seems to be an unending series of ups and downs throughout my life. I’ve gone through periods of happiness when the thought that my next breath could be my last scared the hell out of me. I’ve been through periods of my life where I wanted nothing more than to take that last breath. In short, at every point in my life, in one way or another, I’ve banked on the funeral.” Maeson wrote the songs for Bank on the Funeral from 2011 through last year; it’ll be interesting to hear what his next batch of songs sound like now that he’s flying high.
