Having gained attention from the likes of Justin Timberlake, Jessie J, Tracy Chapman, Lennon Stella, and many other notable names worldwide, Portuguese multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, producer, arranger, and composer, MARO, is undoubtedly one to watch. With over 3 million streams on Spotify, MARO has built an undeniable following completely on her own, in under 4 years. After graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2017, MARO made the impossible decision to permanently leave her home country of Portugal with barely any money in her pocket, to pursue music in Los Angeles. In 2018 alone, MARO released 6 self-written and produced artist projects, yet they only scratch the surface of the melodic canvas she has yet to paint. During this time, video clips she posted on Instagram put her on the radar of 2-time Grammy winning artist, Jacob Collier, managed by Quincy Jones. After a few correspondences, MARO was invited to join Collier’s debut touring band as a featured vocalist and instrumentalist, which she currently remains a member of. She was also asked to open for Fatai on tour, as well as ¿Teo? on his first headlining Americano Columbiano tour. Newly signed to the legendary Quincy Jones’s management roster, MARO has proven to be not only a true musician, but one who also understands that good music cannot be confined to a specific genre.
