With authenticity at his core, the acronym M.E. is only fitting for this rising star who is creating his own niche within the Reggae-Soul genre. He defines his music as the place where R&B and Soul meets Reggae and Dancehall. It is with passion and tenacity that this artiste develops and delivers his music.
Mario completed his degree in Songwriting and Music Business Management from the Berklee College of Music in December 2010 and after spending some time in New York performing, is back in Jamaica developing his artistry and carefully piecing together his album, "Reggae Soul Vol. 1: M.E. on Love". In New York, Evon opened for Reggae Crossover band, New Kingston, performed numerous times at Ashford & Simpson's Sugar Bar, and also at the first Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival. In 2011, Mario made it to the final of four rounds of the Amateur Night at the Apollo competition in Harlem, NY and continues to draw from the diverse experience he is gathering as a performer.
While at Berklee College of Music, he shared the stage with Philip Bailey (Earth, Wind & Fire), producer/bassist Don Was, Angelique Kidjoe, and had the privilege of performing for legends, such as Smokey Robinson and Gamble and Huff. In January 2010, he was an opening act on the main stage of Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival setting the stage for Marion Hall, Jon Secada, Hall and Oates and Gladys Knight. Marking his return to Jamaica, he set the talent stage on fire in 2013 performing between Dionne Warwick and John Legend, to a large and appreciative audience.
