-Matteah Baim was born and raised in Milwaukee,WI.

-After spending her teen years at goth dance nights

and bouncing off the walls of venues, she headed

to the San Francisco Art Institute to study painting

and drawing.

-Upon graduating, Baim decided to complete the

continental criss-cross and moved to New York.

-There, she co-wrote and recorded the song,

Dragon Flys, with Devendra Banhart for his album,

Cripple Crow.

-At the same time, Sierra Casady and Baim formed

Metallic Falcons, a “soft metal” band.

-Their album, Desert Doughnuts, was released

through Touch and Go Records.

-Baim went on to record her first solo album

Death of the Sun, for Revolver USA.

-Mojo Magazine described it as “an intense, moving

communiqué from the edge.”

-Laughing Boy followed soon after.

-For her 2014 album, Falling Theater, Baim worked with

arranger Maxim Moston and members of the NY Phil,

MGMT, The Boys and Girls Choir of Harlem,

Au Revoir Simone, and Antony and the Johnsons

to create a symphonic and rich atmospheric sound.

-Having “a romantic sense of fading opulence,” it

was named as one of Pitchfork’s Contributors’ Top 10s.

-Today, Baim continues to work in the mad world of

music, as well as in sound editing, mixing, and

composing for a variety of multi-media projects.
