Virtuosic singer-composer Michael Mayo on managing his relationship with social media, which he describes as finding the "balance between staying sane and being seen," the subtle space between practice and performance, live looping, bi erasure, the "syllables discussion" in jazz singing, generational trauma, his debut record Bones, discernment, and living a life authentically without labels.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
