Maxd On Jazmine hails from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and cut his teeth playing songs at local clubs and venues around South Florida. Maxd On Jazmine is a pseudonym for self-taught singer/songwriter Barry Tant. The name Maxd On Jazmine comes from the names of his two cats Max and Jazmine. To date Maxd On Jazmine has two albums Spawn (2008) and Forward Backward Forward (2011).
