At just 19 years-old, Marz Lovejoy has emerged as a frontrunner on the Los Angeles music scene. After gaining notoriety for her breakthrough performance on "Shine" by Pac Div (Universal Motown), Marz was recruited by the group for her first national tour. On the heels of the tour, Marz wasted no time in refining her sound alongside acclaimed producer and fellow Los Angeles native Polyester (Dom Kennedy, Too Short, Chaka Khan). iHipHop Distribution took note of Marz's talent and unique style and promptly signed her. Making her mark on the hip-hop community with the release of her debut EP, "This Little Light Of Mine," Marz continued to perform across the country, eventually sharing the stage with Wu-Tang Clan members GZA and Raekwon in New York City during a CMJ showcase. In addition, West Coast legend DJ Quik went on to invite Marz to perform at his Quik's Grooves concert series in Hollywood. Marz earned critical praise for "This Little Light Of Mine," as members of the press championed the release: "Marz Lovejoy stands out with a unique style that combines fun pop-hooks and sharp lyricism... Lovejoy definitely has a bright future ahead of her, as she has the ability to craft catchy hooks to make some noise in the mainstream crowd, and she has the lyrical prowess to hang with the best of the underground." -- Zach Gase, Okayplayer.com
