- Full name: Gerald Maxwell Rivera
- How he arrived on the music scene: fully formed, with 1996's neo-soul masterpiece Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite
- What he did next: put out two solid studio albums and an MTV Unplugged album that cemented his place as the true heir of Marvin Gaye
- Why you didn't hear from him for a while after that: he sat silent for the next eight years, singing only for intimate audiences and the super fans who bugged his shower
- When that changed: in 2009 with the release of BLACKsummers'night, which rocketed to the top of the Billboard 200 and garnered him two Grammy wins
- Indicative song from that album: "Pretty Wings," which deconstructs the unraveling of a passionate relationship
