Mateo’s star persona and relentless pursuit of perfection makes him a talented crossover artist destined for success in the Pop, R&B, and Latin markets.
Trying to get over his first-love heartbreak, Mateo threw himself into dance, then songwriting, and eventually, he found the confidence to pursue his first love, singing. Mateo is eager to unveil what he’s become: a real Pop/R&B talent with a smooth voice, cool moves, and songs that reveal true lyrical prowess. Like his greatest influences Justin Timberlake, Usher, and Maxwell, Mateo has soul, finesse and drive.
“I love to make songs that you just can’t help but groove with. Songs that will truly captivate your emotions.” Mateo’s songs are light—about love and happiness in general. He embraces love, family and friends above all else. It’s his dream to make the most of life—and find (and share) as much joy as he can.
“I value respect and trust,” Mateo says simply, adding, “I love performing for people. It makes me happy to make people laugh and smile and just bug out for a while.” With an attitude like that, plus undeniable talent and energy, Mateo is about to be huge in the music scene and he has the determination to back it up.
