Part artist, part producer, part recluse. These are the three defining qualities of Ro Marsalis’ work.
Behind the boards he’s quiet and calculated, at the mic he’s a bold, charismatic spokesperson for his generation.
Based out of Chicago, Ro infuses soul, folk, gospel and hip hop to blend a perfected stew of harmonic poetry all the while maintaining his Christian integrity.
Though fairly new to the scene, Ro began cutting his teeth on music production and artistry 14 years ago. He began his career as a beat maker at 15 and slowly evolved into a well rounded music producer/artist.
With hopes to push musical innovation and inspire the next wave of artists, Ro’s greatest aspiration is to be a light for those in the dark and to bring hope to those who struggle through the medium of music.
