Born in 1994 in Innsbruck, Austria, Max Plattner quickly found his path to music through his older brother Florian Plattner, who later also found his way to the music industry as an guitarist. After building his own drums out of pillows, pots and cookie jars, his parents got him his first set of drums at the age of 5. At this time he started exploring the music of Alphonse Mouzon, Screaming Headless Torsos, and Michel Camilo.
From 2002 on he studied with Austrian studio drummer Peter Penz as well as the cologne classical drummer Martin Köhler.
From 2005 on you could hear Max Plattner playing session openers and smaller festivals throughout Tyrol
