Maxim Mental: Meeting the Indie Rock Music Legend

Maxim Mental: Meeting the Indie Rock Music Legend

Maxim Mental is a solo project launched by Max Bemis in March 2022

Just before Max Bemis released his first-ever podcast on the music streaming site, Bandcamp, I released an article about what it was like to have met him and his wife, Sherri Dupree-Bemis. I also wrote, in general, about artists bridging the gap between performers and fans.

Since 2017, Max has written and recorded 3 songs for my family and me. My brother, mother, and grandparents were all delighted and brought to tears by the messages that I helped him to convey through his songs: unique messages that we cherish and will have for as long as we live.

Max is known as a comics writer for publishers like DC and Marvel, and for playing in the renowned alternative rock band, Say Anything. Furthermore, Max released the first single from his solo project entitled, Maxim Mental, just weeks before this article was posted. He has also released music under the guise of Perma, Two Tongues, and Max Bemis & the Painful Splits.

If you’d like to learn more about Max’s life, just how I met him, the process I underwent to commission songs, and my thoughts on the alternative rock music scene, feel free to visit my related HubPages article. Max’s music has meant so much to me throughout the years, so I encourage you to explore his discography too!
