Maryze is a bilingual singer/songwriter based in Montreal, originally from Vancouver. Her haunting pop-R&B conjures an intimate universe, blending introspective lyrics with contagious and sensual beats. Balancing angst and euphoria in electronic-tinged ballads, she delivers a refreshing voice with fiery honesty. With a recent North American tour under her belt, this promising new artist is poised for a breakout year.
