Pop, Broadway & rock: Max, ‘American in Paris,’ Shawn Colvin, Stone Sour, Halestorm on tap

It’s time for Max Schneider to get honest.

And the 25-year-old musician couldn’t be happier.

“I’ve gotten more comfortable with baring my soul,” he says. “I work hard to create these truthful pieces.”

Case in point: Schneider’s single “Lights Down Low,” which was written for his now-wife, has been certified gold – the first of his career.

And he’s not stopping.

Schneider’s latest single, “Meteor,” which is on radio now, gives a glimpse into the next chapter of his music career.

“We’ve been working for months on the album,” he says. “I’m excited to get out on tour and bring the new songs to a live audience.”

Schneider will make a stop at Meow Wolf in Santa Fe on Wednesday, Oct. 18.

The musical “An American in Paris” picked up four Tony Awards during its run on Broadway. The touring production will make Popejoy Hall its home beginning on Tuesday, Oct. 17. I caught up with Matthew Scott and Allison Walsh, and they talked about being on Broadway and travelling the country on tour.

Grammy winner Shawn Colvin is celebrating the 20th anniversary of “A Few Small Repairs.” The album helped the singer cross over to the mainstream, and she’s playing the album in its entirety at the KiMo Theatre.

Are you ready for some rock music? Staff writer Rozanna M. Martinez caught up with Stone Sour and Halestorm to talk about their shows in Albuquerque.

And I got a chance to talk with JD McPherson about his show at the Dirty Bourbon Dance Hall and Saloon. He has a new album and will be in Albuquerque on Monday, Oct. 16. To read more, check out the story online at
