Welcome to the best kept secret in music and enter a journey into the world of electronic music my style.
Most favorite songs on Carpe Diem are: Breathe, My Hope, Lost Lullaby, Awakenings, Glance.
Carpe Diem is the first album released by MATURO. It is an album filled with soft melodies and slow progressive beats that are accompanied by lush textures and choral phrases. The album is also compiled with many piano pieces and a dance mix that helps to make up this eclectic project. Even though MATURO is an electronic based project there are lot of natural and real element sounds that are used to give the music a warm feel. Carpe Diem will definitely have something in it for everyone.
Hailing from Southern California, MATURO was created and formed in 1997 by Troy Maturo. Troy’s journey began in the 90’s after being seriously injured in a car accident. With a lot of time confined to his bedroom, he purchased his first keyboard. Realizing that he had a gift to music he self-taught himself to compose his first piece titled “Glance” consisting of piano and accompanied strings.
October 1997 saw the release of his first album “Carpe Diem”. At this time he began playing live as a regular at Universal Studios. This strong release demonstrated the musical abilities of Troy and had been very well received by fans.
August of 1998 MATURO released a second album titled “Forever”. With adding the Irvine Spectrum to his performance schedule he produced a following for his music. Again, this album was loved by all ages and targeted all demographics. Troy found that his music was an inspiration for his fans and received many requests for addition purchases and letters of praise and appreciation.
With the success of Carpe Diem and Forever Troy continued to pursue his love for music and in 2002 released a third album titled “Sanctuary”. Throughout the years as a solo artist he has proved that he has a gift for composing, producing and recording. Shortly after the release of the third album, Troy decided to take a sabbatical and concentrate on a new found family life that had began with his wife and newborn daughter. Music still had a place for him but at this time it was necessary to take a small break.
Now in 2008 Troy felt it time to reestablish his career in the music industry. With a 6 year break his passion has grown stronger and goals have become higher. Wanting to reach more listeners and fans he has began working on the 4th album which will be released in mid 2008 and titled “Infinity”. He feels that this release will prove to be more successful and stronger than the previous albums. Along with the new album Troy has embarked on a side-project which consists of a more dance experimental style of music called MATURO-ALT. MATURO is expected to reach new heights in the future.
