L.A.-based artist, Good Intent, aka Marty Valentine, uses contemporary R&B, pop-infused songwriting to share his tortured yet romantic take on the human condition. He dropped his first EP, “The Sada Project”, on his 16th birthday, June 1, 2016, followed-up by several singles including “Diamond” in 2017. As part of Blackbear's 'beartrap sound' label, he wrote “Froze Over”, which was included on Blackbear’s 2018 album Cybersex. Good Intent's version of do re mi was featured on the do re mix tape. His sophomore EP, “Onodera Valentino”, was released on Valentine’s Day 2018. The EP was self-produced with a guest feature by DMV rising star, Kelow LaTesha.
Good Intent was classically trained in piano studies - his keen understanding of chords leads to airy and whimsical note by note arpeggios that pack a heavy beat. With each new single and his production work, he is gaining momentum and the attention of industry influencers. He was nominated by Illroots Awards as a 2018 “Producer to Watch” based on his released production work for blackbear, Lil Yachty, Goldlink, Allan Kingdom, Ski Mask the Slump God, and Lil Dude and Goonew, both under Hoodrich Pablo Juan. His production work continues to be sought out and he has unreleased work with with blackbear, Goldlink, Shaboosy, and Famous Dex.
Good Intent released his first music video on August 1, 2018, "Lil Cupid". When you hear his recognizable tag, “ridin’ round in that kompressor with my lil bro Good Intent”, you’ll know you’re in for a smooth ride, with its fair share of glimmer and grit. Next in line after an EP in the works and a 12-track mixtape titled “babyMarty”, will be Good Intent's long-awaited freshman album, “In a Heartbeat”.
