Song: Life Comes Life Goes (Album: Vol. 2)

 





In a world of superficial influences, "words of wisdom are more precious than gold"; that is part of the message in this meaningful song, as the listener is asked to slow down from the bustle of modern life and grab hold of those valuable things in our lives we may be taking for granted. Maxie wrote this song in the early 90s while going through the nice one-horse town of Shaniko, Oregon. The talented Jimmy Crokett sang and produced the song in the 90s, giving life to the busy man whose life changed that fateful day in ole Shaniko. The cover artwork was created by Maxie.

Song: Guitar Picken Man (Album: Vol. 2)

 





"...and I'm proud of who I am and what I do", sang the guitar picken man in the song written by Maxie and sang/produced by her bandmate and electric guitar extraordinaire Bill Kinney in the 90s. Maxie sings backup vocals to Bill's characteristically unique lead in this kickback tune that gives us a little levity to live and dream while always centering on those valuable things that keep us going, like the lyrics "I'm coming home to your sweet love", sang the guitar picken man. The unique and fitting song cover art was done by Maxie as well.

Song: Out My Own Back Door (Album: Vol. 2)

 





Here is another downhome country favorite written by Maxie Kinney as she reflects through a beautiful oldtime melody and heartfelt lyrics about appreciating the truly good things in life, asking the listener to not take for granted the blessings out our own back doors. Maxie expains: "Dale Burie sang and produced this for me I met him at the Broken Spoke in Nashville what a great guy too. Forget also all the wonderful people I have met. Anyway this will be the next song I really liked this and remember when I wrote it down in Tennessee, thinking how lucky I was to live in Oregon."

This song was written and produced in the 90s. Maxie and her sister Inge Goodson sang backup. The unique and fitting artwork for the song was done by the artist Maxie Kinney as well.

Song: Come on Home (Album: Vol. 2)

                                                    The late Maxine Bex (Maxie's mother)
b.1924 to 1999




Here is a powerful song that tempts the listener to shed a tear, as it touches on the sad goodbyes we all have to face in this temporary existence to those we love; this uplifting song also touches on trusting in Jesus when He calls us home and how important it is to love our family and friends like there is no guarantee of tomorrow.

Maxie wrote this song after experiencing her own mother passing away in 1999, Maxine Bex; Maxie was living in Tennessee for the second time after coming back home to Oregon in the early 90s until around 1998. Not long after her close and loving mother went to be with the Lord, Maxie moved back to Oregon the second time and has been here since.

Jim Sales did a great job in producing and singing "Come on Home" as Maxie wrote it. The picture is one of a joyful Maxine Bex enjoying a nice sunny day in Central Oregon with family, a good representation of her natural character. Bless her soul, she is well remembered.

Song: Out West in Oregon (Album: Vol. 1)






The journey of an artist is a unique path of ups and downs, questions and answers, expressed through art. In this case, Maxie writes a song about missing her home state of Oregon, specifically Central and Eastern Oregon. Her music journey took her all the way to Nashville, Tennessee, in part to write this song, which ended up being a prelude to a future move back to Oregon years later.

In this heartfelt song from the early 90s, Maxie is singing backup while her sister Inge is singing lead with a song that touched both their native Oregonian hearts. Although the Bex sisters left Oregon together to move to Tennessee, Inge decided to stay and still remains there, while Maxie is back in Oregon living close to where horses still run wild. The talented musical duo still works together in plotting their musical journeys to this day.

Maxie: "Out West...I wrote in Tennessee cause I was homesick so bad. I remember playing it at a writers night and someone made the comment, why are you wasting your talent writing about Oregon, I just smiled and said because it came from my heart and that's what I do, I write from my heart:)"

This song was produced by Max T Barnes in Nashville, TN.
