Max Juby was born in 1931 on a Quebec farm and graduated from McGill University. Most of his professional life was spent prospecting and exploring for gold and other minerals; this involved extensive travel and lengthy periods of time in and around small mining towns across Northern Canada (the “bush”). His principal employer was well-known Canadian mining entrepreneur J.P. (Pat) Sheridan Sr. Max is now retired and lives in Montreal with family.
In 1979, Max discovered his writing bug and has since written over 800 poems, some published on Poetry.com and some compiled in 20 books. He has written over 7,000 songs, singing and performing some 280 of them in various locations including Reno, Nevada and on YouTube. Max has had his MaxJuby.com website for 2 years and today, at age 910, continues his prolific production by writing two or three new songs every single day.
