Maxwell’s voice has been featured on many commercials and album background vocals; he has since toured with country icon Ian Tyson and played bass for the band Chilliwack.

Everybody Wash Your Hands uses a catchy upbeat melody to mention “soap and water” and how to properly “rub and scrub.”

“This is a song that will have everyone singing along as they wash their hands,” Thain said in a recent Facebook post. “Not only is this fun but it is really important to drive this message home. Please share this song with all of your friends and family all over the planet.”

Thain has been performing with Maxwell for more than 30 years and the song can be purchased on Itunes, heard on Spotify, or discovered at www.purepacificmusic.com.
