Max Muscato

Founder & President
Rock Autism Inc

Max was raised by his father, Marc Muscato, in Buffalo, NY. Marc, a professional percussionist, was Max’s first major musical influence. Max afforded his musical skills to his father, who nurtured his talent from an early age. His autistic older brother, Sonny Muscato, was also a drummer. From the time he could walk he was playing drums and integrated into music. July 1st, 2017 was the release of Max's debut album Act One. It quickly caught the eye of a young ambitious company known as Sensu Music, ultimately signing Max to Castle Music Group. The partnership of Sensu Music and Max would not only lead to a promising music career but also the inception of Rock Autism Music Festival. The connection of Max's music and autism is a deep-rooted catalyst that drives his passion and career. Rock Autism Music Festival powered by Sensu Music is held every labor day weekend in Ellicottville, NY - all proceeds to go Rock Autism benefiting autistic individuals in music, film, photography, and more.
