3X EMA Award Winner Arlo Maverick is a Hip-Hop artist who aims to move his fans physically and emotionally. With his slogan of “Music that’s well rounded like Beyonce’s hips”, Arlo’s music is relatable and timely touching on everything from dating with trust issues, coping with suicide, to being undervalued at your 9 to 5.
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 and EDM, but are distinctly Hip-Hop. When you consider that Arlo has received airplay in multiple countries (US, Japan), appeared in a variety of publications (Noisey, Exclaim!) 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 a live band. Arlo’s live show, which he describes as a symbiotic exchange, has opened doors for him to headline festivals (North Country Fair, Sasquatch Gathering), open for hip- hop icons (Classified, Shad) and travel overseas (UK, South Korea).
Arlo is currently promoting his current release, Soul Merchant.
