Michael Mayo, 25, began forging his musical identity long before he hit the stage.

The son of two successful musicians, the Los Angeles native grew up just a little

more than 20 feet from the likes of Diana Ross, Luther Vandross, Earth Wind and

Fire and Stevie Wonder. This proximity helped Mayo create a musical path

centered around the innovative elements of jazz.

After receiving his Bachelors from the New England Conservatory of Music,

Mayo attended the acclaimed Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance,

only the third vocalist to be accepted into the 20-year-old program, where he

learned from Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Luciana Souza, among many


Mayo, who recently moved to New York City, is a veteran international performer.

His highlights include singing at the White House for First Lady Michelle Obama

on International Jazz Day 2016, the Kennedy Center for both the Betty Carter

Jazz Ahead program and Renée Fleming’s American Voices Festival in 2013, and most recently, the Emmys Governors Ball in 2017.

Whether he is performing with a full big band, a rhythm section or alone with a

looper pedal, Mayo's classic vocal style commands the attention of listeners
