Artist Biography

Melanie Martinez is a pop sensation from Astoria, Queens, New York. She was born in 1995 and grew up on Long Island. Growing up with Dominican and Puerto Rican heritage, she struggled to express herself as a child because of her family’s traditional values. Malanie taught herself how to play guitar and used songwriting as an outlet in her teens. In 2012, she won a spot on NBC’s The Voice with her cover of “Toxic” by Britney Spears. She made it to week five before getting eliminated by audience vote. Following this brief time in the spotlight, Melanie started working on solo material, and in 2014 she released the EP Dollhouse via Atlantic Records. The next year she released her debut album Cry Baby, featuring her huge breakout single “Pity Party.” The record reached number six on the Billboard 200 and made it to number one on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums Chart. Melanie’s next album arrived in 2019 titled K-12 which included a full-length movie. The album continued the adventures of the character Cry Baby who was created in her debut album. The album made it to number one on the Top Alternative Albums Chart and hit number three on the Billboard 200. Melanie’s next album PORTALS was released in 2023 featuring the single “Death.”
