Arlo Maverick (CA)
3X EMA Award Winner Arlo Maverick is a Hip-Hop artist who aims to move his fans physically and emotionally. With his motto “Music that’s well rounded like Beyonce’s hips”,
Arlo’s subject matter and sound highlight his storytelling ability and skill for composition. Touching on everything from dating with trust issues, coping with suicide, to being undervalued at your 9 to 5, Arlo’s lyrics are relatable.
Sonically, Arlo’s music tells a story much like his words. In listening to his music, you can hear how his wit and wordplay marry his musical scores that incorporate genres like Soul, Funk and EDM, but are distinctly hip-hop. When you consider that Arlo has received airplay in multiple countries (Canada, US, Japan), appeared in a variety of publications (Vice, Noisey, ThisIs50.com), and charted on national campus radio charts (CMJ, Earshot) it’s clear his proficiency hasn’t gone unnoticed.
Stepping away from hip-hop’s tradition of just an MC and a DJ, Arlo incorporates this hip-hop staple with his live band, Rich Echo. With influences like K-Os and The Roots, Arlo wants every show to be a symbiotic relationship with his fans that is fun, energetic and interactive. Arlo’s live show has opened doors for him to headline various festivals (North Country Fair, Sasquatch Gathering, Amplify), open for hip-hop icons (Classified, Shad, Cadence Weapon) and travel to Europe and Asia to showcase (UK, Holland, South Korea).
Arlo is currently releasing singles to build interest for a full-length album.
