Maxwell, (Gerald Maxwell Rivera) is an American artist whose parents are of West Indies and Puerto Rican descent. Born in the East New York section of Brooklyn in 1973, his earlier years were shaped by his father's death at the age three, from when his mother rarely allowed him to go play outside. He became a loner who spend the bigger chunks of his time indoors reading his Bible and watching Television. Although, he was raised as a devout Baptist and attended church up to five times each week, he did not participate in the church choir. Members of the church began to notice his singing potential as they sang hymns in the congregation, but Maxwell was afraid of being at the front. He began composing music at seventeen when a friend gifted him a cheap Casio key-board, drawing inspiration from artists such as S.O.S. Band, Patrice Rushen and Rose Royce. He was already a big fan of R&B and did not allow the ridicule from his classmates slow him down. They always mocked him as being shy and awkward but he worked hard at his musical abilities to become one of the most famous exemplars of neo-soul. He signed to Columbia and released his debut album, 'Urban Hang Suite' in 1996 and proceeded to release 'Unplugged' in 1997. He won two Grammy awards in 2010 for Best R&B Album and Best Male R&B Vocal Pe''rformance. In April 2012, he planned a six-day tour with his eleven band members but cancelled it at the last minute due to vocal hemorrhaging. His first solo single over a six year period, 'Lake by the Ocean' earned him a performance on the 'Late Show with Stephen Colbert' in 2016. Maxwell has continued to shine in music, earning himself the brand 'new breed R&B artist'.
