EXCLUSIVE: Interview With Teen Sensations Max and Harvey

14-year-old twin brothers Max and Harvey are taking the world by storm with their stunning harmonies and vocal range. The boys shot to fame last year after uploading videos of themselves singing to the Musical.ly website, and since then they have gained a huge following.

They now have more than 160,000 YouTube subscribers and more than 30,000 Twitter followers, and they have just released their debut original single ‘One More Day In Love‘.

So, we thought now would be a great time to catch up with Max and Harvey to find out everything about their rising stardom, music and home life, plus their tour plans and debut album, and so much more.

But to make this piece a little more interesting we spoke to both Max and Harvey separately.

You are only 14, so how young were you when you started singing?

M: We started singing when we were about 8-years-old and have been singing with each other ever since.

What do you parents make of you trying to make a career for yourselves at such a young age?

M: Our parents are very supportive of our career choice, but we are taking things slow at the moment (there’s no rush at all, we’re only 14)

How do you manage to juggle your schoolwork with your music?

M: It’s a very busy life with both school and our music career, but we just about manage to fit everything in and do what we need to do (although we do have our off days!).

How excited are you about being nominated at this years Shorty Awards?

M: We are ecstatic about it. We never would have thought that we would be nominated for any type of award at this point in time!

Do you think being twins helps your harmonies?

M: Yes, we have twin telepathy! Just kidding, but we do pick up harmonies very quickly!

If you could collaborate with any artist/band who would you choose?

M: Avicci or Showtek

You released your debut single in 2016, can fans expect and album this year?

M: We hope so. We are working on songs as we speak!

Do you plan to go on tour anytime soon?

M: We might just do so, so make sure to stay tuned to our social media accounts to find out more. We would also hope to one day tour the world!

Who is your biggest musical influence?

M: Definitely my dad (or Avicci). 

What do you hope to achieve in the next ten years?

M: To have toured the world, to have met all of our fans, and to perform at the O2 arena!!! (Dreaming big!).

Thank you Max for such a great interview.

You are only 14, so how young were you when you started singing?

H: We were about 7 or 8 when we first started singing [together].

What do you parents make of you trying to make a career for yourselves at such a young age?

H: Our parents are very supportive of it all, however, they were not expecting it to go like this at all.

How do you manage to juggle your schoolwork with your music?

H: We just about manage it all with the help of our mum and dad.

How excited are you about being nominated at this years Shorty Awards?

H: Being nominated for the Shorty Awards is incredible for us because we’ve definitely heard of them and know what they are and never thought we’d be nominated for anything like that! 

Do you think being twins helps your harmonies?

H: Yeah, I think so!  

If you could collaborate with any artist/band who would you choose?

H: I would probably choose either Twenty One Pilots or Skrillex.

You released your debut single in 2016, can fans expect and album this year?

H: Hopefully, we will have an album soon, as we are working on some more new songs this year.

Do you plan to go on tour anytime soon?

H: We would love to go on tour some day, but in the summer we are going over to LA and NY. 

Who is your biggest musical influence?

H: Our biggest musical influence is probably our dad, as he got us singing in the first place.

What do you hope to achieve in the next ten years?

H: We hope to have a few albums out and hopefully do a tour of as many places as we can. My dream would be to one day perform at the O2 arena in London.
