About Arlo

The Artist

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.



2017 - 2022

For fans of Canada’s vibrant scene, or even just fans of Hip-Hop that is only concerned with being good Hip-Hop, Soul Merchant is a necessary addition to their library.

…what classic hip-hop is all about; speaking out about the issues that affect us.
Hip Hop Canada
Maybe Tomorrow is like a play or film that follows a character who has been living a tragedy without his knowing it, and the growth comes in newfound self-awareness of what he had and what he has lost.
The Cultural Nomad
Arlo’s genuine writing conveys a hunger for the “better” life being lived all around him from the perspective of a “ravenous mind / in the time of my childhood” while also recognizing the miracle that is a single mother.
In listening to Maybe Tomorrow, it’s clear that a great deal of thought and planning went into the album in order for its story to be a cohesive and impactful one.
