Before his music career sent him into the stratosphere, Rivera was a shy child.

At 17, Rivera started writing music influenced by R&B legends such as Prince and Stevie Wonder, learned a multitude of instruments and found his own voice on the New York club scene under his stage name. His growing popularity led to a contract with Columbia Records in 1994, and set about work on his debut.
Maxwell's first album Urban Hang Suite went platinum within a year of release, and instantly raising his profile to the level of his idols. In 1999, he hit the jackpot with single 'Fortunate', an R. Kelly penned piece for the movie Life, winning R&B Single of the Year at the Billboard Music Awards, Best R&B/Soul Single at the Soul Train Awards as well as a Grammy nomination. 2016 record blackSUMMERS'night shows Rivera's not slowing down any time soon, and he still puts on a hell of a show.
