Melanie Martinez is a remarkable 18-year-old artist from Long Island, New York. A stunning and provocative singer, songwriter, and visual presence, her incredibly unique and arresting performances on the last season of The Voice brought her to fifth place in the competition. She's had two Top Five songs on iTunes (her covers of “Seven Nation Army” and “Too Close"), and has 93,000 Twitter followers and 94,000 fans on Facebook. Her cover of “Toxic” also had huge staying power on iTunes.
Now Martinez looks to release her original music. She currently is recording new songs with producers John Feldmann, Robopop, Syience, and Thomas Bartlett (Doveman). Her songwriting at her young age is reminiscent of both Fiona Apple and Regina Spektor, and her ambition to make a commercial mark is fierce.
