Arlo Maverick is a 5X WCMA Nominated hip-hop MC from Edmonton, AB that fuses hip-hop with Soul, Jazz, R&B, and Reggae. Receiving critical acclaim for honest and thoughtful lyrics that explore topics not often covered in popular music, Arlo Maverick is refreshing both lyrically and musically.


Arlo Maverick is an Edmonton-based hip-hop artist that has celebrated many successes. Some of these accomplishments include awards and nominations (WCMA/EMA); critical acclaim from accredited music sites in Canada (Exclaim/ and the US (Rap Reviews/Pop Matters); showcasing at Breakout West (Canada), Tallinn Music Week (Estonia) and Zandari Festa (South Korea); headlining the 40th Annual North Country Fair’s Friday night main stage; and national campus radio chart activity that landed him at #1 on Canada’s weekly hip-hop charts and #3 on the US weekly hip-hop charts. 

Arlo Maverick’s sound explores Jazz, EDM, and Soul yet identifies itself as hip-hop. Writing from his personal experiences, Arlo Maverick connects with his fans one song at a time. Be it songs about the innocence of falling in love, confronting one’s inner demons, or the struggles of making ends meet, Arlo Maverick’s music is as much about moving his audience physically as it is about moving them emotionally.

Stepping away from hip-hop’s tradition of just an MC and a DJ, Arlo Maverick incorporates this hip-hop staple with his live band.  With influences like K-Os, The Black Keys and The Roots, Arlo’s live show is a fun, energetic and interactive experience where the audience is freed of their inhibitions and exist in the moment. 

Arlo Maverick is currently working on his sophomore album, Soul Merchant.
