The Matrix is a pop music writing and production team, consisting of Lauren Christy, Graham Edwards and Scott Spock.[1]


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


Writing and producing

The Matrix first came to prominence in the early 2000's for their collaborations with Pop artists such as Christina Aguilera, Busted, Myra,[2] Hilary Duff, Avril Lavigne, Jason Mraz, Ashley Tisdale, Shakira, Britney Spears, Miranda Cosgrove and Tokio Hotel. They went on to co-write and produce metal band Korn's seventh studio album See You on the Other Side which sold over two million copies worldwide.


The August 1, 2008 issue of Entertainment Weekly reported that in 2004 The Matrix recorded an album with Katy Perry and Adam Longlands as lead singers and shot music videos. However, weeks before the album 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 label. The Matrix was released on iTunes and CD on January 27, 2009.
