Marty Beller (born July 10, 1967) is an American musician and songwriter. He is the current drummer for They Might Be Giants since 2004 due to Dan Hickey's departure. He has recorded two solo albums. He has contributed writing and vocals for three of TMBG's albums: Here Come the ABCs (on "Alphabet Lost And Found"), Here Come the 123s and Here Comes Science (on "Speed and Velocity").

On TMBG's 2011 compilation album Album Raises New and Troubling Questions, Beller is referenced in the song "Marty Beller Mask", the lyrics of which suggest that he is actually Whitney Houston wearing a mask. On the news of Houston's death, TMBG decided to phase the song out from public performance.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Beller is married to the literary agent Jill Grinberg, and has two children; a daughter named Violet Beller (born September 12, 2005), and a son named Noah Beller (born January 18, 2008).
