Fatih Karaca (born 31 August 1985) better known by his stage name Mabel Matiz, is a Turkish pop music singer-songwriter. He chose his stage name from 2 different words that he was inspired by. "Mabel" is from the Turkish novel Kumral Ada Mavi Tuna by Buket Uzuner. It is the nickname of Tuna who is one of the main characters. "Matiz" is a slang word in the old Greek language meaning "drunk". "Mabel Matiz" reflects his point of view about the world and life.[3]
