Marzz gives their debut EP some extra spice, adding four brand-new tracks that are exemplary of their stratospheric growth over the past year. On the new edition are previously released singles “FYM” and KMS” in addition to two newcomers: infectious snare-heavy “Real Recognize Real” and stripped-down reflective track “Stargaze.” The new tracks familiarize the listener with Marzz, offering no features, and instead honing in on their identity as a fresh face in the mainstream R&B scene.
Of the Deluxe EP, Marzz shared, “I’m so excited to share this new project. These songs are the songs I wrote while I was healing, and still figuring out what boundaries I want set for my future self with love.”
In the “FYM” video, Marzz is the focal point. Relaxing on a nostalgic wood-paneled car filled with wildflowers in an otherwise unassuming warehouse they sing about an ill-fated romance. With hazy visuals, the scene feels surreal and dreamlike paralleling the melody of the track itself.
In 2021, Love Letterz, initially won over the support of outlets like Billboard which reveres the singer for their “…lilting vocals and penetrating lyrics.”BET similarly says to “expect lush, perfectly sung R&B” from the industry trailblazer.
In addition to an upcoming string of headline dates, Marzz will be opening for R&B powerhouse H.E.Ron her upcoming North American Tour. The support dates kick off April 14th in Seattle, WA. Fans can purchase tickets HERE.

Marzz has a central focus for listeners: for them to enter tomorrow’s world through their mind. Drawing inspiration from the planet Mars’ fiery-red intensity, the rising R&B singer/songwriter (who hails from Louisville, KY), hopes to teach others to embrace their uniqueness. Born Laria McCormick, Marzz grew up in the church as many of their family members — including their mother and grandmother — were ministers. They began singing in the children’s choir at age 4 but quickly realized that they didn’t like all the attention. Marzz’ shyness, paired with suppressing their queer sexuality under the pressures of the church, initially forced them to hide inside their own bubble.
The singer soon found solace through a mixture of secular and gospel artists, including Beyoncé, Lauryn Hill, Mariah Carey, Erykah Badu, Kirk Franklin, Kim Burrell, and the Clark Sisters. At first, Marzz considered pleasing their mother by going to bible college to learn how to become a pastor. But they knew their passion lied within secular music. So after coming out in high school and having fellow students cheer on their talents during pep rallies, they built the confidence to take being an R&B artist as a serious career. Marzz transformed the words they scribbled in various notebooks (they currently have 29 of them) into R&B freestyles, which they then uploaded on Instagram. Along with the freestyles, they began to upload covers of popular R&B artists including Teyana Taylor and Ella Mai. Then in late 2019, Marzz’s talent caught the attention of none other than one of modern music’s pioneers: Timbaland. The legendary producer reached out to Marzz to record a handful of tracks and shared their talents on his Instagram page, not only boosting their growing fan base but changing their life. As fans continue to discover Marzz, they hope their music will fuel their imagination to create their own narratives — almost like a magic spell.
