Marti Frederiksen, a native of Los Angeles, started his career as an artist playing drums, guitar and singing lead vocals in several signed alternative and rock bands in the 80s and 90s.
Over those years in bands he stood out as a songwriter and producer, catching the attention of legendary A&R executive, John Kalodner, who introduced him to his now longtime collaborator, Aerosmith. He co-wrote and produced “Just Push Play” also giving him his first taste of worldwide songwriting success with “Jaded.” This paved the way for writing with Def Leppard and Mick Jagger, then producing “Cry” by Faith Hill, and working with Sheryl Crowe, Pink and Eminem.
He’s now an award-winning songwriter/producer crossing all genres with hits such as: Ozzy Osbourne’s “Dreamer,” “Sorry” by Buckcherry, “Love Remains the Same” by Gavin Rossdale, Carrie Underwood’s “Undo It” & “Mama’s Song,” and “Crawling Back to You” by Daughtry.
Marti’s most recent #1 chart-topper was Ayron Jones’ “Mercy” on Big Machine which stayed #1 on the Billboard rock charts for 4 weeks in a row.
