The Matrix (record production team)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The Matrix is a music production team, consisting of Lauren Christy, Graham Edwards, and Scott Spock.


Before her involvement in The Matrix, Lauren Christy had moderate success as a singer-songwriter, releasing two albums under Mercury Records in the mid-1990s, entitled Lauren Christy and Breed. She and songwriter and record producer Edwards are married. Before his involvement in The Matrix, Scott Spock had moderate success as a remixer, film-composer and jazz trumpeter with Dave Weckl.


The Matrix gained fame in the early 2000s after writing and producing a series of hits for artists including Christina Aguilera, Busted, Hilary Duff, Avril Lavigne, McFly, Jason Mraz, Ashley Tisdale, Shakira, Britney Spears, Skye Sweetnam, and Miranda Cosgrove. They went on to co-write and produce Korn's seventh studio album See You on the Other Side which sold over 2 million copies worldwide.

The August 1, 2008 issue of Entertainment Weekly reported that in 2004 The Matrix recorded an album with Katy Perry as lead singer, and shot music videos, but weeks before the disc was set for release the project was aborted. After seeing the success of Perry's solo career, the band released the album under their Let's Hear It Records label. The Matrix was released on iTunes on January 27, 2009, as well as on audio CD.
