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.

Song: When the Coyotes Howl (Album: Vol.1)

Maxie's sister and music partner Inge is singing lead with Maxie singing harmony.
