Who is Malcolm McRae?

Actor at a young age

Malcolm's IMDB bio claims that he has a wide variety of talents. At twelve years old, he was "discovered" by the Actors, Models & Talent for Christ competition, where he went on to win the 2006 Over All Young Actor title. Following that, he appeared in the short films Brotherly and How'dy!.

Passion for music

But McRae's true passion is music. According to his IMDB bio, he can sing "pop, folk, rockabilly, rock, and musical theater" and is skilled with the guitar and piano. His primary work appears to be his band More*, in which he performs alongside Kane Ritchotte, a former member of Portugal The Man.


He disclosed to the American songwriter that he was employed as a paralegal during the day before inking a record contract with more. Malcolm has also experimented with modeling; in September 2022, he appeared on the cover of Odda magazine.
