In 1988, he won the Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance, while in June 1988 he appeared on the cover of the Rolling Stone magazine and was nominated in the Top International Newcomer category at the British Awards.   

In the following years, he released three studio albums: Neither Fish nor Flesh in 1989, Symphony or Damn in 1993 and Vibrator in 1995.

These albums feature many popular songs, including soundtracks from various legendary Hollywood films, such as Beverly Hills Cop III, Ready to Wear (Prêt-à-Porter), The Promised Land (Bastarden), The Fan, Shake, Rattle & Roll, Frankie and Johnny

Sananda Maitreya (with the stage name Terence Trent D'arby at the beginning of his career) is known to the Serbian audience for famous hits such as: ‘Sign Your Name’, ‘Rain’, ‘Wishing Well’, ‘Delicate’, ‘Holding on to You’, ‘Dance Little Sister’, ‘If You Let Me Stay’, among others.

He presents his music as post-millennium rock, and its main elements are heart and soul, its nature is passion, courage and curiosity. Maitreya's vision of post-millennium rock is music free of restrictions and marketing pressures. This music has no rules, its only goal is to lead the listener back to their heart, to provoke their mind and make them re-approach their true feelings. His music combines all genres that the artist loved since childhood: opera, country, classical, jazz, blues, gospel, pop, reggae, as well as rock.

Maitreya releases his thirteenth studio album The Pegasus Project: Pegasus & The Swan in the spring of 2024.
