This week, I’m joined by singer, songwriter and actor Max Schneider, known as MAX. You might have seen him out on the road this summer with Fall Out Boy and Wiz Khalifa, or on YouTube, where he’s a prolific cover artist. MAX truly does it all. He got his start on Broadway before moving to Nickelodeon, where he starred in the show How To Rock. His new EP, Ms. Anonymous, was recently released on Pete Wentz’s DCD2 label, and MAX has a part in the film Love & Mercy, a biopic about Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson.
I caught up with MAX to chat about his early days, how rejection at a young age affects his art today, his odd couple friendship with Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, and much more. Thanks for listening!
