The Tucson Studio gets a big update! Arizona Arts Live and Club Congress are proud to present Mattea and Sharkk Heartt LIVE and in-person on the club stage. Join us on October 12th for our inaugural performance of this new chapter, featuring two phenomenal local musicians. And with this lineup full of heavy hitters and powerful songwriters, you’ll definitely want to be in the mix! 

Mattea (it/she/he/they) is a queer black artist based in Tucson who creates what has been described as Sonoran-Soul. Mattea released it’s first album Body & Soil from her laptop in 2016. Equal parts bougie and the beast, their music is a schmaltzy rabbit hole of bashful beats and clumsy prose. He strives to grow a body of work that chips at the tyrannical empire of white supremacy with a love supreme and a solid grip on the groove.

Sharkk Heartt’s debut, Wars Our Mothers Fought, features seven seismic, moody downtempo electro-pop songs paired with sharp political and cultural commentary. It captures a powerful moment of artistic autonomy as songwriter Lara Ruggles shifted from a band-centric/organic creative process to composing tracks with Ableton and exploring a fresh, richly textured approach. Tracks “Work Fires” and “Hush We Found” can be frequently heard on Tucson’s KXCI Community Radio, Downtown Radio, and Rarity Rock Radio, and the music video for “Work Fires” was winner of the Startup Tucson Ideafunding Creative Battle. Sharkk Heartt’s music would fit snugly on a Spotify playlist alongside artists such as Sylvan Esso, Vagabon, Broods, London Grammar, and Florence + the Machine
