Soulful singer/songwriter, Mateo, will be opening for multiplatinum-selling songstress Keyshia Cole during her 18 city Woman to Woman tour. The announcement comes as the R&B soloist gears for the release of a new single later this month, and a debut album in 2013.
Mateo’s major label debut came last October with the release of Suite 823. The nine track EP was produced by the Grammy Award winning Kerry “Krucial” Brothers (Alicia Keys, Nas, Drake) and featured the sultry duet “Looking You Up” with Stacy Barthe. The Cincinnati born artist first gained recognition and popularity through the release of several mix tapes which have garnered over a million views on YouTube. Alicia Keys became one of his biggest supporters; she even joined him on “Say Its So” from the Love & Stadiums II mixtape.
