New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Singer-songwriter Maritza Merk is known for conveying smooth and compelling vocals, evident in her latest single out today "Both Ways". Part of the New York-based collective Merk La Familia and drawing influences from Billie Holiday, Queen, and Whitney Houston, there is an old soul that lives in the music she creates. Born in Brooklyn New York and raised in New Jersey, Maritza's background is a huge element to what you hear.

Today she creates alternative RNB, contemporary soul, and pop, with a big up to her grandmother who held a part in her style of writing. The close connection was like a constant blast from the past. "I always absorbed the old photos of my grandmother and where she grew up. I come from a Haitian background and she always shared the memories with me, beautiful people just enjoying their youth felt like an old Hollywood movie. It's romantic and simple".

"I wanted people to understand that Both ways is a song about a complicated love thing, like putting together a puzzle with all the wrong pieces. It doesn't work but we try anyway" - Maritza Merk
