DeCarlo Jackson, Andrew Bocher and Rick Haneman met in 2015 and connected over their mutual interests involving music and art. In 2018, the group added bassist Megan Mahoney and “Arlo” was formed. Using original compositions, Arlo elevates any public or private social setting into an intimate experience for each listener. Because of their diverse musical interests and collaborative compositional approach , traces of soul, funk, hip-hop, and jazz can all be heard in their music.
