Maxwell TicketsThe genre of neo-soul was largely shaped in the 1990s by Maxwell along with Erykah Badu and D'Angelo. Known for his puffy afro in the early '90s, Maxwell has grown and evolved over the years and has since been nominated for six Grammy Awards. While the cutting of his afro made the headline of an Essence article in 2016, Maxwell stayed with his Baptist roots and is known today, among other things, for his ability to hit soprano tones that challenge the human voice. In addition to solo performances and appearances at festivals, Maxwell can be seen performing with some of the top orchestras in the country.
The Birth of Neo-SoulBorn with the name Gerald Maxwell Rivera to a father from Puerto Rico and a mother from Haiti, Maxwell started writing his own music at a young age. Growing up in the heart of Brooklyn, New York, he taught himself how to use his voice and play a number of musical instruments. His appearance around the city created a lasting impression, and New Yorkers never forgot. Maxwell's lyrics often touch on themes of love. Maxwell's rise to fame began with his debut album, Urban Hang Suite, in 1996, which made the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. Based on the reaction to this record, he was asked to record a concert for MTV Unplugged in 1997. His second album, Embrya and Now, was released in 1998. 2009 ushered in Maxwell's BLACKsummers'night LP with a new look for the era. Part of it was a full-buttoned suit and a lower trim.
