Driven, Passionate, Talented, and Needed.... are all qualities that distinguish the artist, Mateo. Infusing smooth and rich melodies with dynamic production, his music is sure to score with fans and critics alike. Relying on mostly his own instinctual love for music, Mateo creates a unique sound and sentiment in his records.
Born into a family of musicians in Cincinnati, Ohio, Mateo was raised by a single mother where his early musical gifts were cultivated and developed. At age five, he began his classical training in piano and by age twelve began singing at his local church. These experiences were instrumental in influencing his musical technique and distinctive sound; and prepared him to further hone his musical craft at Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA. After graduating, Mateo moved to New York City where he worked as a corporate consultant, while also performing at various venues around the city on the side. Within a year, his burning desire to be closer to music caused him to leave the comforts of Corporate America and set his sights on Los Angeles to pursue his passion for music full time. Standing at a crossroad of entering the uncertain environment of music or continuing down the stable road of what society expected of him became a quite daunting and tumultuous time for him
". . . . that was a major step for me. Throughout our lives we are convinced that there are only certain roads we can travel, certain jobs that we have to take and certain futures that we must accept. But if you have a passion or a dream, any road that takes you away from that, no matter how stable it is, is taking you away from your true self....so that is why I said enough is enough, music is in my soul not in a cubicle so I bounced"
And now, Mateo has made a respected name for himself in the entertainment community. He has since had the opportunity to join Mewzic Monsterz Entertainment headed by the renowned producer, Jae Staxx and as a result, his music can be heard on such television shows as Eve, All Of Us, and Cuts. Much more than todays male singers, Mateo is an awesomely refreshing artist and entertainer. With integrity that supersedes his already immense talent, this young singer must now prepare himself for the stardom that is sure to follow. Whether you're with your friends or the one you love, his songs are filled with passion and intense energy that pulls you into a world of euphoria.
