Katmaz is a Brooklyn based songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist that approaches music visually, resulting in a cinematic quality to his sound. Born in Buffalo, NY, Katmaz found his passion for music at a very young age. After moving around the midwest and touring with the alternative act, Debussi, Katmaz settled in New York City in 2014. With the help of fellow producers Braden Blair and Matt Cody (SZA, Ro James), Katmaz created WaveCave studios.
In April of 2016, Katmaz gave a sample of his emotive, soulful strain of music with his first solo release "Nautical Things". Jason Grishkoff (Indie Shuffle) called it "beautiful enough to put me into a stupor" and placed it in their "Best Folk of 2016." In 2018 he released the EP “Tremolo Love” in which the Wild Honey Pie called it “a soulful piece of folk orchestration that could fill a stadium packed with awestruck fans.”
Katmaz is currently producing and songwriting for several artists in his studio, and throws a monthly party called the “WaveCave Sessions” showcasing some of these artists. He plans on releasing several singles by the end of 2019.
