Bio

New Jersey-born Zach Matari has grown tremendously as an artist over the past three years. Formerly a writer of pure pop songs (he's a multiple-time recipient of the John Lennon Songwriting Award), Zach has learned more about his family's past over the past two years, bringing him more in tune with his present. With an influence of Middle Eastern culture and sound into his American pop sensibilities, Zach Matari is crafting and performing songs that are soulful, powerful, and unique.

Zach’s positive body-image song “Mirror” has received more than 30 million Facebook views as the soundtrack to the DreamWalk Fashion Show, an event embarking on a 2020 tour of the United States.

“Dançando,” also reflects personal empowerment and has seen global support by diverse and inclusive communities. The impact of Zach's Brazilian heritage is felt throughout the beat of this upbeat track.

Zach's biggest song in the U.S., "Risk It All", has enjoyed life in the Middle East and Europe, receiving strong streaming numbers from as far away as Saudi Arabia and Germany.

Zach's first song of 2020, "Don't You Let Me Go," is expected to be Zach's biggest song to date around the world.  The track has been featured on top Spotify editorial playlists and pushes boundaries beyond the typical western pop song.

Whether he’s playing with his band, The After Parti, or as a solo act, Zach brings joy, energy, and a new awareness to audiences.  Stream Zach Matari on Spotify, Apple Music, Anghami, YouTube, Deezer, or wherever you listen to music.
