Matina Z has known from the Christmas she asked for a guitar that music was going to be her future. This Greek/Canadian teen has been immersed in music ever since. At the age of 15, tracks from Matina Z’s album, “Whispers in the Dark”, were written, recorded, and released within two years of her picking up guitar. The tracks played nationwide in Canada on campus and FM radio stations. One big highlight from the album was the lead track entitled “Stage 9 Clinger” charted #1 for six consecutive weeks on a large web-based radio station Live 365 in Italy.
Songwriting is not the only place Matina Z excels in. Anyone who has seen her live can’t help but to be drawn into her performance. Her live performances are powerful, passionate and captivating with every strum of her guitar and every note she sings. She feels each and every word she sings and makes the audience believe they have experienced and felt what her songs are about. She is without a doubt the “TOTAL PACKAGE”. Matina Z’s performances are something one needs to experience for themselves whether it is at a bar, club, venue, school, festival, or even a radio station.
This multi-dimensional young artist is a breath of fresh air as she sings and plays live while transitioning from acoustic to electric guitar and even piano. Still being in her teens, this unique, one of a kind artist has now packed her bags with her heart on the line and is currently in Greece for some writing, recording, and touring opportunities. This modern alternative pop/rock and yes, even folk singer/songwriter has no limits. Nothing will hold her back and this is best explained by Matina Z herself.
“I have an absolute need to share my music with the world. I don’t really understand it, but it is a deep desire. Perhaps that is why I have been referred to more than often as an “old soul”. I will not take no for an answer, there is no stopping me, and there has never been a B plan. I have put my money where my mouth is and have funded my music career entirely myself. I have decided to come to Europe as I feel it is important to evolve as an artist through new experiences and to see the world from a new perspective. With the support from my family, friends, and most importantly fans, I will continue to chase my dreams!”
Matina Z has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with incredible artists and musicians including: Anvil's bassist Chris Robertson, Saga's Drummer Mike Thorne, DJO's Pete Swann, and Awarding winning Producer (Sinead O'Connor) Chris Birkett. She has performed in two continents and no matter where she is in the world, it is up on stage where she feels most at home.
