For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If three words just aren't enough then tell us more!! Sad. Mad. Rad. I think the subject matter and vibe of any of my songs could fit into those three categories.


What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why. Personally, songwriting is what keeps me going as an artist. I've always been inspired by a pretty sweeping variety of genres. I go nuts for stuff from Steely Dan, to My Chemical Romance, to Ariana Grande. All drastically different, but equally inspiring to me. Songwriting gives me the opportunity to convey all of these styles in one way or another. Sure, not everything I write is fitting for my own project, but I prefer it this way. The act of writing and collaborating and sharing music with other artists is where I find the most joy.

Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you? Honestly, every studio experience has been a bit different for me. I don't think there's been a single session I haven't been nervous going in to, but when I'm able to make a connection with the prouder or engineer I'm working with, it's so much fun. My best studio experience so far was with Rian Dawson of All Time Low. I've been a huge fan of theirs since I was a teenager, so having Rian producing and engineering was super exciting for me. It was so important for me to get feedback and insight from someone I'd looked up to for so long.


Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing? I love watching "bad" movies. I'm really into the Fast and Furious saga right now. (Unironically.)


Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why? It's an easy choice for me. Lil Nas X. Watching a black, gay man flourish in spite of all the adversity he's faced is so inspiring. He's pushing boundaries, he's extremely talented, and every one of his songs is a banger. Plus, his fashion is out of this world. A literal icon.


Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it? When I released my first EP under the name Max Fischer, there was a song on it called Get It Out. That song is a really personal exploration of surviving my own mental illness. I suffer from depression, anxiety, and a slew of other issues. Get It Out touches on so many of the negative things my mind tells me when I'm in crisis. Feeling like I'm a bad person, feeling like things will never get better, etc. There's always been a stigma around mental illness, so sharing that side of me is an emotional, and vulnerable experience but I feel it's a way for me to play a role in ending those stigmas.

Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year? Definitely have some stuff in the works. On July 23rd, I'll be releasing Goth Girl Summer. I'm a big fan of Meg Thee Stallion so the title is an obvious nod to her "hot girl summer" brand. The track was produced by Dan Swank who's a writing and touring member of All Time Low, so the track has those fun, alternative elements.
