NBMBAA® Impact Awards

With single name admirers such as Sting, Oprah, Stevie and Obama, its no surprise when those that surround this timeless artist make the point that his name is spelled in all caps with the period – MAJOR. And for many other performers this could appear as a bit overly confident. Good thing for MAJOR. it’s his real name and he has the chops to back the point.

Raised in Houston, TX in a blended-family household of 10 siblings MAJOR. began making music at a young age and performed in various musical venues in his hometown and abroad throughout his childhood. MAJOR. explains, “Music has always been my favorite way to tell a story, from 3yrs old to now. I won’t stop until I reach the whole world!”

He graduated from the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (Beyoncé, Robert Glasper) received intensive classical training from Professor Steve Smith of The Juilliard School and Houston Grand Opera High School Voice Studio. And he ultimately attended the famed Berklee College of Music, serving as the Student Body President. After graduation, the musical savant took the next step in the natural evolution of a true musician, packed his bags and headed west, landing in Los Angeles, CA. It wasn’t long before he built a reputation as a powerful live performer selling out historic venues such as The Troubadour, Hotel Café and even the Barclay’s Arena. PJ Morton of Maroon 5 declaring, “MAJOR. gives balance to today’s music showing us that the art of instrumentation and performance is still very much alive.” After some viral YouTube success as well, he inked a deal with hit UK music producer Harmony Samuels at B.O.E. Music Group and has over the past two years set the industry aflame.
