Rising Stars: Meet Mari Myz

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mari Myz.

Hi Mari Myz, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
Music has always been in our lives from a young age. We come from a musical background on both sides of our family. We were introduced to artists from the genre of Bob Marley all the way to Whitney Houston. Call it cliche but we actually started in the church choir, eventually breaking off into our own category.

We always knew from a young age that music was something we wanted to make a career out of and in the year 2017 started implementing our vision. The group set out to get exposure. We went on auditions for many talent showcases such as “America’s Got Talent” and many more. Our 1st debut single “Just a Vibe” as Ayoka & S.O.H released in 2018 eventually changing our names to Mari Myz.

Shortly after that “On Me” was released starting our music portfolio. With “Just a Vibe” being such a hit, the single landed us a position in the talent showcase Coast Coast Live in 2019, where we won 6th place across the world. After that, it was up from there and we continued to just drop singles.

Currently dropped our latest single “White Yayeen” in late December 2021 and now recently working on our upcoming ep! The rest is history in the making!

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Definitely has not been a smooth road! Interesting would definitely be the word.

We’ve had issues with keeping consistent engineers & producers, not enough studio time, not enough performances due to the pandemic and balancing your 9-5 while trying to give your all to your career.

We could go on and on. Although with anything you want in life there is going to be trials and if it was easy everyone would be doing it right?

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
We create! Good ass music at that. We specialize in making a moment the best feeling.

We’re known for making hits that hit more than just the ear but the soul. What sets us from the rest is the love that’s behind the music we make. It’s so precious that it’s too easy, to be honest, and that’s what makes it the best! We honestly feel that we are creating our own lane!

We are creating a vibe Nashville hasn’t felt before! It’s authentic and that’s what makes us most proud!

Do you have any advice for those just starting out?
That all good things come to those who stay true. Shout to my boy Tupac. What’s real last fr, fake things fade out. Basically saying stay true to yourself.

Don’t conform just because of “What’s popping?” Enjoy YOUR journey. Don’t compare. That’s what will get you off the path when you start comparing. Just stay true to who you are, and what you want to represent. If you remember that, you’ll be fine.
