High-energy. Eclectic. Amped up. Marlow Rosado is a 2-time Grammy-winning Latin artist, producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist with over two decades of experience in the music industry. With 16 Grammy nominations and various other awards and recognitions, Rosado is a driving force in Latin music and a leading figure in the salsa scene.
Marlow Rosado was born in Puerto Rico and moved to Miami to attend Florida Atlantic University on a full scholarship where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Music Education. After Graduation, Marlow went on to work as a Music teacher for the Miami Dade County School Board where for ten years he dedicated his life to bringing quality music education to the students he taught. These efforts earned him a 2014 proclamation by the superintendent of MDCPS and then in 2015, he earned the Distinguished Alumnus award from the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters at FAU.
Rosado’s musical career spans multiple genres, from salsa and Latin jazz to rock and pop. He has released seven studio albums, with his debut album Salsalsa drawing so much attention from the salsa scene, that he would become the first artist in almost 20 years to be signed by the legendary Fania Records. His second album, Retro, was life-altering, as this is the record where Rosado would win the American Grammy for Best Tropical Album, beating out the powerhouse Romeo Santos.
He quickly followed this win with the release of his third album, SALSANIMAL, which showcased Rosado’s passion and aggressive musical style, leading the L.A. Times to nickname him “…the heavy metal band of salsa.” His fourth album was a collaboration with his mentor Larry Harlow, entitled Harlow-Marlow, where Larry passed on the torch of salsa royalty to Marlow. This album would go on to chart at number 7 on the Billboard Tropical List. Rosado’s next album, FEMINOMANIA, was an extremely powerful and empowering record, featuring some of the most legendary female Tropical singers. His sixth studio album, Colores de la Salsa, was a unique and vibrant collaboration with the legendary vocalist Frankie Negron. Rosado’s most recent album took a different direction, embarking into the Latin jazz space. The record, Orun, featured a collaboration with the 14-time Grammy winning Latin Jazz legend Chucho Valdes.


2024 brings additional changes and several new projects for Rosado. He has three records coming out, including his second Latin jazz record, A Time to Say Goodbye,  which is a heart-warming tribute to his mother who passed away, the official Larry Harlow Tribute Album, and a collaboration with Cubaton star Baby Lores. Marlow is also the executive producer of the new album for superstar violinist Gustavo Dudamel.
Over the last twenty years, Rosado has collaborated and/or performed with some of the industry’s biggest names, including Marc Anthony, Celia Cruz, Maluma, Selena, Idina Menzel, Tito Nieves, Snoop Dogg, Ricky Martin, Elvis Crespo, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Alejandra Guzman. He has written over 70 songs for notable Latin artists and has earned the “La Musa” award at the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Apart from his music, Rosado is dedicated to charity work locally in South Florida and abroad, and has partnered with organizations on several projects supporting children and education  in Puerto Rico, Haiti, Nepal, Colombia, and Peru. He has been featured in prominent media outlets for both his music and his contributions back to society in such publications like The L.A. Times, Billboard Magazine, People Magazine, and Huffington Post.
With his passion for music and philanthropy, Marlow Rosado continues to inspire and influence the Latin music industry.
