Matty Marz

Matty Marz is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. Her musical influences range from pop, rock, funk, and electronica. With a technical background in classical music (vocal and composition) and years of experience producing, performing, and writing, Matty can steer the creative process any way she sees fit.

Matty recently graduated from the Los Angeles Academy for Artists & Music Production (LAAMP), where multi-Grammy award-winning producers Tor Hermansen and Mikkel Eriksen (Stargate) handpicked 45 talented artists and producers from around the globe to work with the industry’s best mentors. LAAMP focuses on fine-tuning the craft of singing, songwriting, and the musical production of making great pop songs.

In 2023, Matty saw the releases of songs like “#2”, a brash indie pop record filled with the angst of not being appreciated, referencing artists like Blondie & Talking Heads, followed by self-produced and written “m.w.u,” a gritty electronic pop anthem about self-reflection and independence which introduced Matty’s new era and sound. In addition to her artist project, songs like “sad4me” showcase Matty’s ability to produce pop anthems for blossoming talent.

Toward the end of the 2023 season, Matty was approached with the opportunity to audition for American Idol S22, which features celebrity judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie. The season will premiere in February 2024, so stay tuned!

This year is gearing up to be a monumental year for Matty as she prepares to release her highly anticipated album, “m.w.u.” Inspired by artists such as Ethel Cain, Charli XCX, Bjork, & Infected Mushroom, “m.w.u” is a story of euphoria and release. Touching on genres like industrial, electronic, drum ‘n’ bass, and trap, Matty has created a diverse and immersive project to wow listeners and transport them into a different plane of consciousness.
