Born on October 31, 1995 in Atlanta, GA, Mateo Arias is the son of Colombian parents, and younger brother of actor Moises Arias.
Like his brother, he was brought up bilingual and is fluent in Spanish and English – this international background and skill set deeply influences his work and perhaps helps explain his transcendent career around the world. In addition to being in front of the camera, Mateo began producing original content of his own at just 10 years old. Since then, ¿Téo? has accumulated millions of streams across all platforms and has singlehandedly developed a genre which draws elements of Bossa-Nova, Hip-Hop, Classical, and Alternative. A genre which he refers to as “Neo American”. His work has caught the attention of every major label in the music industry and has sparked inspiration amongst artist and fans alike - not only making a lasting impact on today’s music consumers, but also planting his flag as a pioneer in a world driven by content. Mateo’s “below the radar approach”, and elements of mystique that surround him have created a movement that follows him. His most notable musical works include Uno Dos (feat. Jaden Smith), Palm Trees, Hágale, Out of Hand, Mari-Knee-Jah, and his most recent single, Américano.
