Episode 020: Max Collins (Eve 6)
With hits like “Inside Out,” “Promise,” and “Here’s To the Night” under his belt, Max Collins helped pen iconic alt-rock staples that live on to this day. In addition to fronting Eve 6, the band he formed in high school with a pair of childhood friends that would go on to enjoy gold- and platinum-selling success, Collins is a solo artist these days. His debut solo album, the crowdfunded Honey From the Ice Box, was released earlier this year and finds Collins tapping into artists like The Lemonheads to craft a sound unlike anything in his past. I caught up with Max to talk about Eve 6’s most beloved songs, crafting a unique lyrical style, and what fans can expect from his upcoming second solo album.
