Having spent much of 2013 selling out clubs across the country, Martinez will celebrate “THE DOLLHOUSE EP” with her biggest national tour to date, kicking off June 4th at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s World Café and continuing through the end of June. Additional live dates will be announced soon –please see www.facebook.com/melaniemartinezmusic for updates.
Martinez – who is also currently hard at work finishing her eagerly awaited debut album alongside such collaborators as Robopop (Jessie J, Lana Del Rey) and the aforementioned Kinetics & One Love – has been hailed as a provocative singer, songwriter, and visual presence. The song “positions Martinez as an American version of Lorde,” writes Newsday. “(Martinez) sings about a picture-perfect family that is much more troubled under the surface,” declared Us Weekly, noting that Martinez – a former contestant on NBC’s smash reality singing competition series, The Voice – “might be the show’s first real breakout star.” The Long Island, New York-native captured the country’s imagination with her arresting performances on the highly rated Fall 2012 season of NBC’s The Voice, driving her unique renditions of “Too Close” and “Seven Nation Army” to top 5 sales on the iTunes Store. In addition, Martinez’ rendition of “Toxic” lit YouTube on fire, earning more than 6 million individual page views.
