He quickly warmed to classic americana, learning the songs of Johnny Cash and Big Bill Broonzy. He then began writing his own songs and aged 18 he moved to Los Angeles to follow a career in music. Here he met Shawn Mullins, with whom he wrote a number of songs. In 2013, Maz Gomez put out his debut album Rule The World. In 2017 he released the EP Me & Joe. That was produced by Jim Scott, who has worked with Tom Petty, Johnny Cash and Lucinda Williams. Among the musicians on the EP are guitarist Doug Pettibone (Lucinda Williams) and pedal steel guitarist Greg Leisz (Jackson Browne, Eric Clapton). His only Danish festival concert in 2019.
