ABOUT THIS ARTIST
It wasn’t until she turned 19 that MARO realised she wanted to pursue music full time. Graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2017, the songstress made the tough decision to move to Los Angeles instead of going home to Portugal. In her first year in LA, the artist released six self-written and self-produced albums. During this time, her Instagram caught the eye of Grammy winner, Jacob Collier, who invited her to join his debut touring band as a featured vocalist and instrumentalist. MARO has supported Jessie J, Fatai, ¿Téo?, and is currently opening for Charlotte Cardin’s European tour.
