Max Milner is a singer from London, England.[1] He had a #63 hit on the UK Singles Chart with a cover version of Free Fallin' by Tom Petty.[2]

At age twenty-one, Milner auditioned for The Voice UK, appearing on the first of four audition shows. He auditioned with a mash-up between The Beatles' "Come Together" and "Lose Yourself" by Eminem. The audition was met with a positive reception, with three coaches: Danny O'Donoghue, Jessie J and all electing for Milner to join their teams—from which Milner selected O'Donoghue.[1] During the battle rounds, Milner sung "Beggin'" by Madcon against twenty-three-year-old Bill Downs—with Danny crowning him the winner.[1] In the second live show, Milner performed "Free Fallin'", originally by Tom Petty—finding himself in the bottom two alongside Hannah Berney; from which he was saved.[1] In the fourth live show, Milner performed KT Tunstall's "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree", also incorporating elements of Ed Sheeran's "You Need Me, I Don't Need You"—finding himself in the bottom three alongside Aleks Josh and David Julien; from which O'Donoghue saved him for a second time.[1] During the semi-finals, Milner performed The Police's "Every Breath You Take"—though he was eliminated in favour of Bo Bruce.[1]
