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 is quickly gathering critical and commercial acclaim around the globe. 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, Mayo is a veteran international performer whose highlights include singing at the White House, the Kennedy Center and Renée Fleming’s American Voices Festival, as well as the North Sea Jazz Festival.

Most recently he has recorded and performed with Herbie Hancock, Jacob Collier, Scary Pockets, Jonathan Batiste, Gretchen Parlato, Josh Groban, Ben Wendel, and Nate Smith among many others. His own band performances have been standouts at Hollywood Bowl, Detroit Jazz Festival, Atlanta Jazz Festival, and Monterey Jazz Festival. Signed to Mack Avenue Records, Mayo’s debut record BONES, produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Eli Wolf (Norah Jones, Al Green, The Roots) was released in 2021 and won a German Jazz Award in 2022. He is currently working on his follow-up album.
