Maurice Foley has been working behind the scenes in the music and entertainment industry for over 30 years. In 1988 he approached a concert and events promoter asking if he could volunteer to understand the management and business side. This allowed him the opportunity to develop solid and long-lasting relationships with well-known artists and entertainers of which many he still maintains in contact.
Maurice has worked with various entertainers such as Luther Vandross, Shanice Wilson, LL Cool J, Toni Terry, Johnny Gill, Fantasia, KeKe Wyatt, Kenny Lattimore, Angie Stone, Cynthia Bailey, Shemar Moore, Jennifer Hudson, Tamia, Kelly Price, Oleta Adams and many others.
In 2015, Maurice created XSCAPE Puerto. XSCAPE Puerto Rico was designed to bring people of color together within the LGBT Community to one location during Memorial Day Weekend in May. A big part of the weekend was to honor and celebrate trailblazers in the community as well as mainstream artists and entertainers who are LGBT advocates and friends. XSCAPE Puerto provided a platform for mainstream artists and emerging artists within the LGBT community to perform. During the weekend there were financial / health and wellness events sponsored by the AHF and Gilead organizations as well as theme parties and excursions throughout Puerto Rico.
In 2017, Maurice ventured into creating a new weekend festival called ColorBloc. ColorBloc Music Festival Is an Annual Arts, Culture and Music Festival that celebrates and unifies cultural experiences through music, fashion, art, health & wellness, sex, gender, and film. The annual festival is designed to attract a wider audience and provide a platform for building community and networking opportunities. Its primary focus is to allow a diverse culture the opportunity to not only party together but to also build solid relationships through community involvement and business ventures.
Maurice also works at a non-profit organization where he assists public sector employees to build retirement security.
