Mario Winans

As a member of Puff Daddy's Hitmen Production team, Mario Winans has already worked on some of the Bad Boy faimily's biggest records, including remixes of Pudd Daddy's 1997 hits "Been around the world" and "Victory." A descendent of the Winans gospel dynasty, Mario is also a respected drummer, lending his skills on Puffy and Jimmy Page's 1998 single, "Come with Me" (Godzilla: The Album Epic/Sony Music soundtrack), and keeping the beats live on Puff Daddy and the Family's "No Way Out" world tour.

Mario also contributed to PD's CD Forever (1998 - Bad Boy) on "Best Friend", an emotional ode to God, and teamed up with Lil Kim on a number of tracks for her album, The Notorious K.I.M. (Atlantic). Hallelujah and Amen...

Winans Bad Boy debut CD, Hurt No More includes romantic ballads such as the heart-felt "3 Days Ago," "Disbelief" and "Turn Around." The 17-tracks on Hurt No More also include mid-tempo and up-tempo songs such as "How I Made It," featuring Loon, "Pretty Girl" featuring Foxy Brown, "So Fine" and "This Is The Thanks I Get," featuring Black Rob. The gifted singer/songwriter/producer/musician Winans produced the entire CD and co-wrote all of the songs on Hurt No More. Hurt No More also showcases his talents as a drummer, pianist, and keyboard player making Mario Winans a stand-out in the arena of R&B male singers.

The Detroit native, is part of the legendary gospel family, The Winans. His mother is the talented solo artist Vickie Winans. For more than a decade Winans has produced, remixed and written for such A-list artists as Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Whitney Houston, R. Kelly, Jennifer Lopez, Brian McKnight, The Notorious B.I.G., and P. Diddy, as well as his own famous family.

"...the Winans family gift stretches well beyond church walls.  Detroit Free Press
"...one of the year's best R&B albums so far...  New York Times

Muze PNote For a member of the revered Winans clan, practically the first family of gospel, to turn to Bad Boy Records would almost seem scandalous, but so it is with Mario Winans, the sultry-toned crooner/songwriter. After releasing an overlooked debut in 1997, he aligned with Sean Combs's empire to become a well-regarded producer. Almost seven years later, he emerged with the smooth, multicolored HURT NO MORE, a record crafted in the Bad Boy style, but absolutely immersed in soul of the past (particularly the Philly variety).
Muze PNote While Winans's stories of love, loss, desire, and deceit are entirely secular, he sings with unwavering heartfelt soul worthy of an heir to gospel royalty. It's as if he's pouring his entire being into many of the songs on HURT NO MORE, which contains simple, sweet, imploring ballads ("You Knew," "Should've Known"). However, the album also features songs with wonderful flourishes, such as the jazzy piano on "I Got You Babe," the imperial-sounding synth on "This Is the Thanks I Get," and the otherworldliness of Enya's vocals backing the megahit "I Don't Wanna Know." Aided by flecks of hip-hop, Winans soulful concoctions should make him a household name on his own terms.

Professional Reviews

Vibe (p.151)
- 3 1/2 out of 5 - "This is the secret of Winan's magic; the soft touch of the synthesizers and his gentle piano playing blend with the signature sound of the kick and snare - hard, unadorned, punching through the music's gauzy, elegiac texture."

Billboard 7 of 10
