Mariah the Scientist
Born and raised in Atlanta on a steady diet of R&B, Mariah the Scientist arrived on the music scene in 2018 with her indelible project To Die For, showcasing her take on the genre that’s sonically shaped her. It was a defining moment for the artist, who had quit studying biology at St. John’s University in Queens, New York to become an anesthesiologist. The metamorphosis from science student to star artist for the 25-year-old came naturally. Self-sufficient in her creative process, Mariah’s honest songwriting and unique conceptual visuals have set her as a fearless and unapologetic voice in R&B. The success of her latest EP, BUCKLES LABORATORIES PRESENTS: THE INTERMISSION, led to a sold out tour of her own and performances at the biggest festivals, including Coachella, Something in the Water, Lollapalooza, and Barcelona’s Primavera Sound. This past winter she released the singles, “Bout Mine” and “Christmas in Toronto,” while performing alongside Toosii and Rod Wave on the sold out Beautiful Mind Tour. Mariah is currently in the studio working on her highly anticipated third album.
