- Forty-year old, Brooklyn-born Gerald Maxwell Rivera, known as Maxwell, is a singer-songwriter, record producer and multi-instrumentalist. His music spans R&B, funk and soul, but he is best known as one of the most popular of the neo-soul movement of the latter 1990s. After a hugely successful debut album, Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite, he released Embrya, Now and a live album MTV Unplugged. After an 8-year hiatus, he returned with the platinum-selling BLACKsummers'night, the first of a trilogy. He has received 12 Grammy nominations with two wins.
