Nazaruddin Mashruddin (NAzTyKeyz) is an active and sought-after pianist and keyboardist in the Singapore music scene. Having learned the piano and violin formally at 10 years old, NAz has developed a keen sense of hearing and harmonically rich playing, and captures the attention of his audience with his rambunctious performances.
A recipient of the NAC Georgette Chen Arts Scholarship and “Best Keyboardist” at Yamaha Asian Beat ’09, NAzTyKeyz has been knocking down doors at 19 years old performing and recording piano with Hady Mirza (Asian/Singapore Idol) for his Hit Single “Ku Ketap Kan Menunggu Mu”.
NAzTyKeyz started focusing more on his career after National Service, and by 2014 had already sessioned for many local artists such as Sezairi, Sam Rui, The Sam Willows, Narelle Kheng, THELIONCITYBOY, Tabitha Nauser, and many more. In mid-2014, he got the call to play for local band 53A, playing regular nights at Timbre@Substation.
In 2015, NAzTyKeyz landed his biggest session gig with local artist Gentle Bones (Joel Tan), playing multiple shows and touring overseas. Joel then had his debut concert at The Esplanade Concert Hall in 2016, selling out both days (10th and 11th June), marking the first ever local artist to achieve this remarkable milestone. To this date, NAzTyKeyz still sessions with Joel, having been a part of most of his music such as "dear me,", "Can We Have A Conversation", "You're My Superhero" and "At Least I Had You (with JJ Lin)". NAzTyKeyz also worked as a Music Director for Gentle Bones on most of the shows and tours.
NAzTyKeyz performed with 53A during the National Day Parade 2016 where they played the theme song titled, "Tomorrow's Here Today".
Other local artists and bands NAzTyKeyz has done session work for include The Summer State, The Stoned Revivals, Tim De Cotta, Alicia Pan, Eugenia Yip, Jon Chong and more.
