Biography

Marty Goetz has been called a modern day psalmist. His songs are scriptures beautifully set to music, leaving listeners spiritually moved, inspired and educated. With melodic and fresh acoustical/classic arrangements, Marty Goetz has the ability to lead you into a place of true intimacy with God. Though Marty would never refer to himself as ‘anointed’ the endless letters he receives confirm that God is moving through him and his music.

In 1965, when thirteen year-old MARTY GOETZ stood at the bimah of Cleveland’s Temple on the Heights for his Bar-mitzvah and solemnly sang the ancient words of the Torah, no one — least of all Marty — could have envisioned that some twenty years later he would be singing to God, this time as a featured performer at Billy Graham’s 1991 Rally in Central Park. For, although Marty knew that music would always be a part of his life, God was something he thought he could now leave behind.

As half of ‘Bert & Marty’, he sang at clubs and dinner theaters around Pittsburgh while studying English at Carnegie Mellon University. There was even a non-singing guest appearance on ‘Mister Rogers’ as Smokey Bear.

After graduation, he and Bert set out for New York City, determined, as Marty remembers, ‘to give it two weeks to become a star or I’d go back to Cleveland and the family furniture business.’ Just one week later, Marty and Bert found themselves performing at hotels in the Catskill Mountains. At the end of the summer they were named ‘Best New Act of 1974’.
