You might remember Arlo Maverick from his work with the Edmonton hip-hop group Politic Live. His debut solo album tells the story of a character he calls "Soup," a promising musician struggling with loss, addiction, and the search for success. Soup is troubled, but he's also tough and not afraid to look trouble right in the eye. - CBC Radio - Key of A

Maybe Tomorrow is like a play or film that follows a character who has been living a tragedy without his knowing it, and the growth comes in newfound self-awareness of what he had and what he has lost.

4 out of 5 - The Cultural Nomad


The extra wait was worth it. Maybe Tomorrow, which mixes hip-hop beats with gospel, soul, robo-pop, and eerie Blade Runner-style soundscapes, is a poignant and powerful look at Soup’s life — from his family dynamics to his girl problems to his attempts at therapy to his relapse into addiction. - Edmonton Journal


In listening to Maybe Tomorrow, it’s clear that a great deal of thought and planning went into the album in order for its story to be a cohesive and impactful one. - Vue Weekly


Ellipsis is a career-defining masterpiece. - Edmonton Journal


Ellipsis is arguably the most important rap recording ever made in, about, and for the town they fondly call “Elympia”. - Edmonton Examiner


In listening to Ellipsis, one gets the feeling that this is what classic hip-hop is all about; speaking out about the issues that affect us. - HipHopCanada.com


The rappers' flows, and singing, is unexpected, melodic, and creative. - RapReviews.com


Mahogany Public says it the way it is, speaking the truth, and losing all inhibitions in order to speak the minds of many people who have either tried and been silenced, or are too scared to speak up for what they know is right. - chry1055.wordpress.com


2010 Urban Recording of the Year Politic Live Presents... Mahogany Public JALI Volume 1 - Western Canadian Music Awards


Politic Live’s strengths are formidable. First, dope beats. Second, catchy hooks. Third, and most importantly, the group exudes sincerity. - PopMatters.com


BEST RAP RECORDING - Politic Live Block O Remix featuring Rochester a/k/a Juice, Shad K, Jerys, & Oozeela. - CBC Radio 3


With a wide array of tracks that the audience can appreciate and a variety of beats influenced by reggae, dancehall, and hip-hop, Politic Live's "Adaptation" dissproves the Canadian hip hop stigma of artists releasing inferior music. All I have to say is that U.S. emcees have some competition headed their way. - RapReviews.com


Adaptation is a solid addition to what is fast becoming the niche of Canrap: brainy, organic and challenging hip-hop. - Exclaim Magazine


'Outstanding Urban Recording' - Western Canadian Music Awards


Politic Live are three dope MC’s from Edmonton who are steady on the rise. The perfect blend of radio friendly, Kanye/ R+B flavours, Southern Crunk, Hardcore and Reggae vibes makes for a diverse listening experience, with lyrics treading the balance between politicized knowledge of self and the steady hustler grind.

Bio

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/HipHopCanada.com) 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.
