Maxi Jazz, the artist best known as lead vocalist of English electronic music group Faithless, has died.
An official statement shared on social media today (24th December) confirmed that the musician, real name Maxwell Fraser, died “peacefully at his home in South London” on Friday night (23rd). He was 65.
The joint statement from Faithless’ Sister Bliss and Rollo Armstrong, and Maxi Jazz’s band The E-Type Boys, continued: “He was a man who changed our lives in so many ways. He gave proper meaning and a message to our music. He was also a lovely human being with time for everyone and a wisdom that was both profound and accessible.
“It was an honour and, of course, a true pleasure to work with him. He was a brilliant lyricist, DJ, Buddhist, a magnificent stage presence, car lover, endless talker, beautiful person, moral compass and genius. Rest in peace dearest Max.”
