bio

Cortney Matz creates environments for connection – with one another and with oneself. She is a piano-playing singer/songwriter in Los Angeles.

After 14 years in the film business, Cortney fully embraced music in 2015 when a crisis of the heart compelled her to the piano, writing and singing at every opportunity Which led to sharing those songs with others. Which led to booking her first gig at a local artist-friendly coffee shop. Which led to connecting with other songwriters and starting a monthly showcase and open mic.

Which has led to three albums and a tour. She now performs around town in hotels, cafes and backyards. After a lifetime of writing, singing and playing music “on the side,” Cortney is having a blast making music her primary endeavor.
