MUSIC NEWS: MELANIE MARTINEZ (@MelanieLBBH) OPENS “DOLLHOUSE TOUR – PART TWO”

Atlantic recording artist Melanie Martinez has unveiled the next leg of her acclaimed US headline tour. "Dollhouse Tour – Part Two" gets underway November 9th in Dallas and then continues through the month. For full details, please visit www.facebook.com/melaniemartinezmusic.

Martinez's compelling "Dollhouse" companion video has proven an online phenomenon, with individual page views now in excess of 6.5 million at www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcVv9R1ZR84. Co-written by Martinez with GRAMMY® Award-nominated tunesmiths Kinetics & One Love (B.o.B, Neon Hitch), the dark pop dream of "Dollhouse" has already earned an array of ecstatic critical notices. The song "positions Martinez as an American version of Lorde," writes Newsday's Glenn Gamboa. "She's an 18-year-old writing songs for and about teenagers in an authentic, memorable way." "(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."

"Carousel," taken from Martinez's breakthrough debut, "THE DOLLHOUSE EP," is currently featured in the first extended trailer for FX Networks' hugely anticipated American Horror Story: Freak Show (www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKGwySm9nMc). An official companion video – filmed earlier this month on the acclaimed singer/songwriter's native Long Island, New York – is currently in post-production and will premiere in the coming weeks.

Having spent much of 2013 selling out clubs across the country, Martinez followed the spring release of "THE DOLLHOUSE EP" with her biggest national tour to date. In addition, the talented singer/performer is also currently hard at work finishing her eagerly awaited debut album 'Cry Baby'  alongside the aforementioned Kinetics & One Love. 'Cry Baby' is slated to arrive in early 2015.

Hailed as a provocative singer, songwriter, and visual presence, Martinez 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's rendition of "Toxic" lit YouTube on fire, earning more than 6 million individual page views.
