Rio “Mario” Jefferson

Rio “Mario” Jefferson

Is one of the industry’s most sought after and accomplished producers. He is currently published at the major record label BMG and has too many illustrious artists in his production catalogue. Rio grew up in the South Side of Chicago and his favorite part of his career is traveling and producing records on the road, so you’ll rarely find him in the US. His latest venture is opening his own record label, L.O.V.E. Music, where he is developing the industry’s next icon.

Rio counts Rihanna, Beyonce, Jessie Reyez, and Bebe Rexha as just a few of the artists he has had the pleasure of producing songs with. He is no stranger to panels and masterclasses, and is very excited to be involved with HVSC and their development of the next generation of visionaries.
