Known for his innovative mash-ups of pop music and pulp fiction, Morty Shallman has been writing and performing original songs since the age of 12, and wrote his first novella, To Exist with the Night, while still in high school. Morty is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Chicago, where he studied creative writing with renowned novelist Richard Stern.
After successful stints as lead singer and songwriter for quasi-fictional power pop antihero, Andrew Ashbury, and Chicago alt-rockers, Minds of Babes, Morty moved to Los Angeles, where he has released four solo albums, created and published the world's first musical novel, "Last of the Zacharys," and performed at clubs from LA to the UK.
His latest EP, the neo-pop indie noir concept thriller "Pop Fiction," has been called "a pop-infused masterpiece" and "a truly groundbreaking accomplishment in conceptual music and art."
