Hailing from the under industrialized city of Gary, Indiana Marz emerges to share tales of his 24 year old life. Marz began his journey of "seeing sounds" at an early age after being exposed to the southern blues from his grandmother and stealing hiphop tapes and cds from his father. Around the age of 17 he decided to put his musical knowledge to use and began to create music out of his mother's bassment. Marz is gearing up for his fist solo project "Early Mornings, Late Nights." EMLT is a journey into the mind of Marz as he transformed from boy to man. Marz has pushed his sound to a greater level of individuality. He touches upon a range of styles and subject matters. Integrating Old School hip hop techniques, catchy hooks, hard hitting beats and electronic sounds with lyrics of broken relationships, bad jobs and attending class still drunk from the night before. "This project symbolizes all my emotions in a nut shell; happiness, sadness, loneliness and anticipation just to name a few" says Marz. The MC is striving to bring his audience in as deep into his music as possible. With plans to release the project independently in May 2012, Marz is making sure every detail is perfect. Not only did he mix most of the album himself but he is developing the artwork as well. Over the past couple of years Marz has been building buzz for his music by releasing music from within his hiphop group TheMartianz and the music collective TEAMGREENWHATUP. "My passion is touring, I love spreading my energy and positive vibes to fans, which are more like my friends while I'm on stage." Marz says with a slight grin. Marz and his TEAMGREENWHATUP camp is ready to make a strong push this year and with "Early Mornings, Late Nights" picking up steam, they are on the right track.
