“Without a doubt the best young male jazz singer in Los Angeles” – LA Weekly

“Mayo’s vocals emanate a dreamy rich savor” – Huffington Post

Whether Michael Mayo is performing with his band, as a guest, or alone with a looper pedal, the LA native’s commanding and other worldly vocalese has gathered critical and commercial acclaim around the globe. Born to two successful musicians, Michael Mayo 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 elements of R&B, Soul, and Jazz, forging his musical identity long before he hit the stage. 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 the likes of Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock.

Now living in Brooklyn, Michael Mayo is a veteran international performer whose highlights include singing at the White House, the Kennedy Center, The Monterey Jazz Festival and North Sea Jazz Festival among many others. Most recently he has recorded and performed with Herbie Hancock, Jacob Collier, Gretchen Parlato, Josh Groban, Ben Wendel, and ScaryPockets. Signed to Mack Avenue/Artistry Records, Mayo’s debut record BONES, produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Eli Wolf (Norah Jones, Al Green, The Roots) was released in 2021. He is currently working on a follow up album.  Valet Parking available. We like masks if you do! (Miami Beach)
