Singer-songwriter BSKi teams up with producer Greg Mayo and together they hit us with “Get On The Floor”, a retro-tinged r&b, dance-record. The long-time collaborator’s chemistry is undeniable as they really tap into the 80’s era with lush strings, alluring and layered melodies with an infectious groove to match. Helmed by BSKi, the track sees him in his element as he delivers a soulful performance reminiscent of luminaries like DeBarge, J. Timberlake, etc. As the catchy vibes play front and center, BSKi further explains that the song is about a guy who sees the girl of his dreams at a party, asks her for a dance and the world
Born and raised only miles from New York City, Greg grew up in a musical household. The son of legendary musician Bob Mayo (of Peter Frampton, Hall and Oates, Foreigner and others), he’s had it in his blood, and at his fingertips. Since studying jazz and studio composition at The Hartt School of Music and The Conservatory of Music at SUNY Purchase, he has been living and working in the New York music scene for 15 years.
In addition to producing for and performing in countless projects scattered across the musical spectrum, Greg plays guitar and sings in Brooklyn Sugar Company, a rock and roll band based in New York. Greg also leads an old school soul band appropriately called Greg Mayo Band singing and playing piano. In the last year he’s produced records for soul singer BSKi, hip hop group ItsTheReal, and rock/folk artist Robbie Gil.
Over the years, Greg has cut his teeth alongside some of the world’s best musicians. Recently he produced music for Masked Singer, the new FOX series slated to debut in January 2019. As well as teaching master classes at his Alma Mater (the Conservatory of Music at SUNY Purchase), he just wrapped 10 years of teaching at the prestigious Lagond Music School in Westchester, New York. Since early 2017, Greg’s been performing with Jon Bon Jovi in his band Kings of Suburbia, as well as his acoustic outfit Jon Bon Jovi and Friends. He also has been playing with the legendary jazz-rock band Blood Sweat and Tears with whom he’s been on and off the road. Most recently Greg signed on performing in Revolution: Beatles Symphonic Experience.
