Maxwell was raised by a single mother, as his father died when he was just three years old. From an early age he was very religious, and he started singing in a Baptist church choir. After matriculation, he devoted himself to pursuing a professional music career, and began performing his own music in a number of local venues.

Maxwell’s professional career in the world of music really began in the mid-1990s, when he started working with songwriter Leon Ware and guitarist WahWah Watson on his first album which, entitled “Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite”, came out in 1996, reaching No. 8 on the US R&B chart. Furthermore, it achieved double platinum status in the US, which certainly increased Maxwell’s net worth as well as popularity considerably, but it also encouraged him to continue making music. Subsequently, he recorded an EP, as a live performance from an MTV Unplugged concert, which was also successful, achieving gold status in the US, and further increasing the overall size of Maxwell’s net worth.

The following year he released his second studio album, entitled “Embrya”, which was a collaboration with singer Sade. The album reached No. 2 on the US R&B chart, and achieved platinum status, adding further to Maxwell’s net worth. Since then, his career has gone only upwards, and so has his net worth. His next album “Now” – released in 2001 – topped the US R&B chart, and US Billboard top 200 chart, as well as his fourth studio album “BLACKsummers’night”, released in 2009.

Maxwell eventually recorded his fifth album – “blackSUMMERS’night” which was released in July 2016, the sales of which undoubtedly increased his net worth by a large margin.

Thanks to his talents, Maxwell has received numerous prestigious nominations and won awards, including 10 Grammy Award nominations, of which he has won two in the categories of Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for his song “Pretty Wings”, and Best R&B Album for “BLACKsummers’night”. Furthermore, he has also won five Soul Train Music Awards, including Best R&B/Soul Album award for his album “Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite”, and the award as the Best Male Artist R&B/Soul, among others.
