- The Official Website of Mario Evon, the Prince of Reggae-Soul
This Jamaican born and raised singer/songwriter is a product of Mona Prep Choir, Campion College Choir, and the University Singers, all of Kingston, Jamaica. Mario Evon is another bright upcoming Jamaican artiste adding his flavour to the music industry. Unassuming, but energetic, he produces a mix of many genres including R&B, jazz, reggae, dancehall, and combines them to form a unique style. Singing from about the age of seven (7), Mario has also done his fair share of performing in Jamaican theatre, scoring the understudy for ‘Timon’ in “The Lion King”, and the lead for ‘Daniel’ in “Once on This Island”. Prior to being accepted to Berklee College of Music, Mario had good experience singing backup vocals for many established, as well as upcoming artistes, including Benjy Myaz, Camar (pka Flava Unit), the Rocky 5 band, Alaine and Cezar. Also prior to attending Berklee, Mario put working as a Medical Doctor on hold to pursue this dream of being a recording artiste.
Now at Berklee College of Music he is pursuing a Bachelor of Music Degree, double-majoring in Songwriting and Music Business/Management. But it doesn’t stop there. Since being at Berklee Mario has been intensely involved in the community, singing with Bostonian reggae band ‘Hot Like Fire’, and singing background vocals for Berklee’s Singers Showcase and other student bands. Mario recently was selected to do lead vocals in Berklee’s Singers Night, and also just became a DJ on the Berklee Internet Radio Network (BIRN), with his new Caribbean culture show called ‘Caribbean Connection’. Mario has all hopes of becoming one of the future 'movers and shakers' in the Jamaican, as well as the international music scene.
