    Max Gall - Music Artist

    Max Gall - Music Artist

    Born in Heidelberg, Germany, Max Gall moved to a small town in Pennsylvania only two years into his life. Max is known for his unique chord structures and rhythmic acoustic guitar. His unique style and love of alternate tunings comes from an interest as a kid in players like Don Ross and Antoine Dufour, though before discovering that style he was raised on artist like Neil Young, Eddie Vedder and The Rolling Stones. His father always had an acoustic guitar around the house and would teach him little bits here and there, and once Max reached his teenage years he was hooked. Structuring songs became a way for him to express himself; an escape from the world around him that allowed him to unwind and reset.

    During his high school years Max formed the band Coastal Remedy with some friends and went on to record two full length albums. After ten years of ups and downs he made the decision to join his drummer and longtime friend in Nashville, Tennessee to try his hand at a solo career. Like many independent artist Max is just finding his way; no matter where life takes him music will always be a part of his journey.

    HARRY SHUM JR. talks new horror-thriller BROADCAST SIGNAL INTRUSION

    Harry Shum Jr. has proven himself to be a dynamic force in Hollywood. While he is perhaps best known for his role as Mike Chang on the hit series Glee, Shum has consistently embodied complex and meaningful characters, bringing depth and magnetic energy to the screen.



    Shum was recently seen as the lead in Universal's romantic drama ALL MY LIFE, starring opposite Jessica Rothe. Inspired by real events, the film follows a couple whose wedding plans are thrown off course when the groom is diagnosed with liver cancer. All My Life released in theaters on Friday, December 4th, 2020.



    Also, upcoming, Shum stars in the technological thriller, BROADCAST SIGNAL INTRUSION, opposite Chris Sullivan and Kelley Mack. Inspired by actual broadcast interruptions that occurred in the Windy City in the late 1980s, and remain unsolved to this day, the film is an unsettling journey into our collective technological nightmares.



    He will soon be seen in A24's Sci-Fi film, EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE, starring opposite Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, James Hong, Ke Huy Quan, and Jamie Lee Curtis, with the cryptic synopsis: It's about a 55 year old Chinese woman trying to finish her taxes.



    He recently wrapped production in Vancouver on McG's production for Netflix's LOVE HARD. This romantic comedy follows an LA girl, unlucky in love, who falls for an East Coast guy on a dating app and decides to surprise him for Christmas, only to discover that she's been catfished. Shum will be seen alongside Nina Dobrev and Jimmy O. Yang.



    His previous film credits include Warner Bros' massive hit CRAZY RICH ASIANS. The film, which features a historic all-Asian cast, was nominated for 2 Golden Globes, won Best Comedy at the Critics' Choice Awards, and was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture at the 2019 SAG awards. He also starred in the Netflix Original feature CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON II - THE GREEN DESTINY, the sequel to the Academy Award-winning martial arts film, Crouching Tiger, set 20 years later.



    Other notable projects on the silver screen include ESCAPE PLAN 3: DEVIL'S STATION opposite Sylvester Stallone; BURN opposite Suki Waterhouse and Josh Hutcherson; CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON: SWORD OF DESTINY, REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS, MOMS' NIGHT OUT; STEP UP 2: THE STREETS, and WHITE FROG.



    Shum has numerous TV credits as well, including the fan favorite SHADOWHUNTERS on Freeform, in which he starred as the eccentric warlock MAGNUS BANE, for which he won the People's Choice Awards Male TV Star in 2018. The series is based on the bestselling YA fantasy series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare and follows a teenage girl who discovers on her 18th birthday that she comes from a long line of Shadowhunters, a group of human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons.



    In addition, Shum starred in, produced and co-choreographed The LXD (LEGION OF EXTRAORDINARY DANCERS), an online dance adventure created by director Jon M. Chu (STEP UP 3D).



    Passionate about children, Shum has partnered with The Conscious Kid Organization, which focuses on education, research, and policy dedicated to equality and promoting healthy racial identity development in youth while supporting organizations, families, and educators in taking action to disrupt racism in young children. Shum's heart also lies in working with the Anti-Racist Children's Book Education Fund initiative through this organization.



    Born in San Jose, Costa Rica and raised in both Northern and Southern California, Shum began dancing in high school and soon after discovered acting. He currently resides in Los Angeles.

    Celebrity Vocal Coach Eric Vetro - "BACKSTAGE PASS" Podcast

    Celebrity Vocal Coach Eric Vetro - "BACKSTAGE PASS" Podcast

    "BACKSTAGE PASS" IS A NEW PODCAST HOSTED BY CELEBRITY VOCAL COACH ERIC VETRO, FEATURING CONVERSATIONS WITH ARIANA GRANDE, JOHN LEGEND, SHAWN MENDES, AND MORE




    Backstage Pass with Eric Vetro launches October 20, 2021




    There's one special thing the most famous singers in the world have in common: his name is Eric Vetro. From Ariana Grande to Shawn Mendes to John Legend, vocal coach Eric Vetro has been by the sides of your favorite singers for some of the most iconic moments in their careers. On "Backstage Pass," Vetro's celebrity students retrace their vocal journeys, from the very first song they ever sang and their favorite vocal exercises through the challenges they faced building their careers.




    Eric Vetro is one of the country's most in-demand vocal coaches for a reason. For over 35 years, Vetro has worked in Hollywood with students that include A-list actors, Broadway singers, and global pop stars. They meet with him regularly to prepare for Broadway productions, movie musical roles, world tours and nationally televised awards shows. Even for the naturally gifted, professional singers prepare with the extreme discipline of runners getting ready for a marathon. Vetro sees students seven days a week, sometimes waking up in the middle of the night to warm up singers on tour many time zones away or teaching in unusual locations such as the backs of SUVs, alley ways, and even bathrooms before shows. Amid grueling tour schedules and high-pressure performances, he is there for these singers every step of the way. Bubbly, magnetic, and beloved by his students, he has the kind of personality that led Ariana Grande to tweet, "Eric Vetro is my favorite person ever."







    Originally from a small city in upstate New York, Eric Vetro started an amateur vocal teaching practice, teaching his classmates how to sing "The Star-Spangled Banner." He went on to study voice and piano at NYU, finding a mentor in Lloyd Walser, a chorus master at the New York City Opera. Inspired by his targeted approach, Vetro does not try to make everyone sound the same, but rather emphasizes what makes a student sound special. He moved to LA in 1984 and has been growing his student list ever since.




    "Backstage Pass" will include interviews with many of Vetro's vocal students, including Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Chloe Bailey, Rosalia, Camila Cabello, Vanessa Hudgens, Stephanie Beatriz, and John Legend. These intimate conversations will reveal the secrets behind how these performers hit those high notes (spoiler: one is a technique called "Silent Ferocious Lion's Yawn") and will emphasize why Eric has become the coach, therapist and friend to the most well-known singers in the music business.




    Eric Vetro is the celebrity vocal coach to stars such as Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, John Legend, Camila Cabello, Katy Perry, Rita Ora, Chloe x Halle, Juanes, and Rosalia as well as the lead singers from bands like Haim, Weezer, Incubus and Muse. He has trained A-list actors for the movie musicals La La Land, Chicago, Judy, Mary Poppins Returns, Hairspray, Beauty and the Beast, Eurovision, In The Heights and Cinderella as well as the new releases Dear Evan Hansen, Tick Tick.Boom!, and Disney's Encanto. He has worked with many Disney stars who went on to have singing careers such as Vanessa Hudgens, Sabrina Carpenter, Ashley Tisdale, Olivia Holt, Laura Marano, and Dove Cameron. He has also worked with many Broadway actors including Tony-award winners Hugh Jackman and Bette Midler.
