formally entering the industry at just five-years-old, Maestro spent 20 years grinding in the worlds of music, film, and television. Along the way, he starred on HBO’s The Wire, his own sitcom UPN’s Guys Like Us, on broadway in The Lion King, as well as parts in the critically acclaimed Bone Tomahawk, AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead and Showtime’s House of Lies. He worked under the legendary Jermaine Dupri at just 12-years-old before signing his first major label deal to Def Jam at 15.
Maestro made an impact on the electronic music world as a producer and DJ. Receiving support from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hardwell, and more, he released his biggest dance floor single to date, “For You” with Dzeko & Torres and Delora, during 2015. It became a standout from Tiësto’s Club Life Vol. 4 New York City compilation and racked up 5 million-plus Spotify streams in under a year’s time. Everything forged a foundation for the release of his independent Maestro EP in 2017. Taking the mic, he literally gives a voice to his passion for dance music delicately crafting a style steeped in R&B bombast a la The Weeknd and evocative of The Chainsmokers’ propulsive and unpredictable production. The first single “I Don’t Care” introduces this style with a bang.
