Allow me to introduce you to DEMARO – an emerging, openly gay dancehall artist who’s ready to risk the adversity associated with the Caribbean’s stance on homosexuality, in the pursuit of his music career. Jamaica, a country so beautiful, is still plagued by it’s negative ideoglogy of the LGBTQ community. For DEMARO, that meant moving to New York would be his only escape for hope, survival, and sharing his music freely.
Since moving to New York, DEMARO has performed alongside Island Records signee Kidd Kenn at his official NYC showcase and he’s gearing up for a stream of performances and the rollout of his first EP in the spring.
DEMARO’s unique sound is primarily dancehall based with influential styles of afro beats, soca, and hip hop combined. His first single “Mi Readi” is breaking barriers and moving traditional dancehall music in a more progressive direction. “Mi Readi” gives off good vibes, a tempting flow to dance to, and lyrics to get you ready for anything! As the beginning of the new decade emerges, DEMARO is a new artist to keep on your radar.
