Hailing from Portland, Oregon and needing no stage name; Motaz (his birth name which is Arabic for "proud") has been a hidden gem in the music industry and is soon to become a household name. Known not only for his unique soulful voice which does not shy away from any genre, Motaz is a triple-threat with his unparalleled passion, ability to play multiple instruments, and most impressively, his history of writing, producing and engineering all his projects. Not to be compared with any other artists; he has the vocal range of the likes of Bruno Mars, The Weekend and Miguel. Guitar playing and songwriting skills that clearly echo influences by John Mayer. And your chances are very high that you will hear layers of harmonized background vocals similar to the King of Pop himself.
