Maryze is a queer bilingual singer-songwriter and content creator based in Montreal, originally from Vancouver. Her stormy-sweet alt pop conjures a haunting universe, blending electronic beats with fiery, introspective lyrics performed in English and French. On May 6, 2022, Maryze released her highly anticipated debut album 8 on Hot Tramp Records, and embarked on a month-long Canadian tour. The album weaves together themes of identity, sexuality, family trauma, ruptures, forgiveness and acceptance, and experiments with influences and genres, from emo and hyperpop to Celtic folk. 8 features the artist’s first self-produced tracks, receiving critical acclaim from Under the Radar, Consequence of Sound, CBC/Radio-Canada, and Wonderland Magazine. Maryze’s debut 2019 EP Like Moons charted on Spotify’s Viral 50 Canada, launching a North American tour followed by a single with Polaris winner Backxwash in 2020. The multimedia artist continues to explore new mediums, and was voted #2 TikTok and #2 Electronic artist in the Best of MTL 2022 voter poll.
