Cortney Matz is a piano-playing singer/songwriter in Los Angeles. She is active in the Hollywood music scene, and has been hosting gatherings for musicians and other artists since 2016.
Cortney creates environments for connection – with one another and with oneself. 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 two 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.
“Cortney writes and sings piano and vocal lines that are achingly beautiful. Furthermore, her song “Fellowship” off her Christmas EP is so heartfelt and meaningful that it should become a standard Christmas song!” – Jenna Cunningham, Singer-Songwriter
“Cortney’s lyrics are direct, sincere and heartfelt! They reflect a well-lived life and offer insight for her listeners. Seven thumbs up, if I had them!” – Hans Obma, actor; Better Call Saul, Turn
