About Melanie Martinez

Melanie Adele Martinez (born April 28, 1995) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born in Astoria, Queens, and raised in Baldwin, New York.

Born to Dominican and Puerto Rican parents, she got her start on the Emmy Award-winning TV show The Voice USA at 17 years old. Although she did not win, this lead her to produce her first single “Carousel”, which was used in promos for American Horror Story: Freak Show.

Starting her independent career, Melanie signed with Atlantic Records. More than a year after Melanie’s Dollhouse EP was released, her first studio album Cry Baby made its debut on August 14, 2015. She worked with the likes of Kinetics and One Love in producing the record, and directed her own music videos.

Her unique style of writing, singing, and story-telling has garnered her enormous fanbase— songs like “Mrs. Potato Head” and “Dollhouse” yield a touch of social commentary, while “Alphabet Boy” and “Cry Baby” give listeners a glimpse into her personal life.

She cites Lana Del Rey, Regina Spektor, Feist, Fiona Apple and Marina and the Diamonds as major influences on her music.

In addition to her accounts on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, Melanie also uses Tumblr, YouTube, and her official website to connect with fans.
