Making Music - Warren Maxwell

Short Film (Full Length) – 2005

TrinityRoots' vocalist and songwriter Warren Maxwell talks about his career and songwriting in this episode from a series for secondary school music students. Maxwell explains the genesis of the Wellington roots/reggae act's classic 'Little Things' (and the making of its music video); he performs a stripped back excerpt from the song. Maxwell also recalls the problems the band encountered in recording their first album and previews a new work, 'Angel Song' (which later appeared on TrinityRoots' second album Home, Land and Sea).

 

My thoughts, my whakaaro, on a lot of songwriting is that for me it has to have meaning, it has to have a kaupapa, it has to have depth.
– Warren Maxwell
