Mateo is leading a new era of artists with his distinct voice and “Urban Mod,” a genre created and proclaimed by the artist and rightfully so. Like his name states, “a gift from the Heavens”, Mateo’s gift to alter the sound, image and passion behind the genre. Already sharing the stage with artists such as Miguel, Kendrick Lamar and Erykah Badu and releasing the acclaimed Underneath The Sky mixtape series, Mateo has proven he has the “it” factor. With Grammy Award winning producer Kerry “Krucial” Brothers at the helm of Mateo’s major debut, it is only a matter of time before the world sings his praises.
“My goal is for people to hear the music and be able to see themselves inside the stories. I want to be the artist that was authentic yet relatable whether it be about love, good times, bad times, the past or the future. That’s what my goal is. I want my music to touch certain moments for people, so that when a song comes on it reminds them of where they were and where they are now. Ya know – timeless music” proclaims Mateo.
