Nothing like a family business, am I right? Then let me introduce you to the sibling duo – URBANO. This brother and sister duet is comprised of John and Marisa Urbano, hailing from the suburbs of Philadelphia. For URBANO, their love of making music had illuminated their purpose quite brightly, creating a strong foundation in crafting their aesthetic style of blending pop, EDM, and hip hop sounds together. This sibling duo has a unique approach to writing and recording their sound, as John raps all the verses, and Marisa sings the hooks and bridges. URBANO has been gaining popularity over the years, as their debut single “Are You?” was released on 418 Record Label, owned by heavy hitter Gino Caporale. “Are You?” was able to climb to #26 on the Billboard Dance Chart, creating some notoriety for this sibling group.

After meeting talented producer AJ DeMarco at Miami Music Week’s Winter Conference, their next single “Standing Ovation” came to fruition quite serendipitously. The track caught the eye of legendary hip-hop label, Tommy Boy Records and was signed to a single distribution deal. “Standing Ovation” has a worldly sound, influenced by Hindustani arrangement using sitar qualities, but enough bass to have everyone dancing all night long! URBANO was able to perform this club banger on Fox 29’s television program, The Q Show in front of their live audience! The performance was broadcasted in Philadelphia, New York, Atlanta, California, Detroit, and Minnesota; while also gaining over 7,000 hits from the television program’s Facebook video feed! You can also see the duo’s video in over 5,000 corporate gyms, playing on screens to help you get your workout done!
