Max Schneider | Singer & Actor


Upon introduction, it is hard not to get caught up in the fast-paced world of Max Schneider. Quickly approaching the eve of his 21st birthday, Max’s entire 5’7” frame seems to continuously vibrate with an energy for all things entertainment. A YouTube performer, singer, songwriter, actor and model, Max started in the entertainment world at […]

Madilyn Bailey’s Cover of ‘Crazy’ + Flula Beatboxing = Beautiful, Beautiful Music [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]


Quick, what’s better than Flula beatboxing? Why, Flula beatboxing on top of Madilyn Bailey singing, of course!

Daneboe | ‘Annoying Orange’ Creator


Dane Boedigheimer, aka Daneboe, is at this point already a YouTube legend. And he’s also a super nice guy.

Bart Baker | Comedian, Parody Artist


NMR had a chance to sit down with Bart Baker, one of the best and brightest talents in Maker’s stable. He’s wild and feisty in his videos — so it seemed like he could be a real pain-in-the-ass to deal with in person. But pain-in-the-ass or not, Baker is totally his own story and well worth […]

Seated alongside her parents and boyfriend, Madilyn barely resembles the often serious and professional persona fans see in her music videos. Among the laughter and teasing of her family members, Madilyn […]
