When: Thursday, March 24, 2016, 7:00 PM
Where: PlayStation Theater, 1515 Broadway, New York, NY, United States
Melanie Martinez is an unforgettable 20-year-old artist from Long Island, New York – a stunning and provocative singer, songwriter and visual presence. Her debut Atlantic album, Cry Baby, was released on August 14, 2015 and debuted as the “Hot Shot Debut” at #6 on the Billboard Top 200. On May 20, 2014, she released her debut EP Dollhouse, largely collaborating with Kinetics & One Love (B.o.B). The EP debuted at #4 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. Her self-conceived and/or self-directed videos for “Dollhouse,” “Carousel,” “Pity Party,” “Soap,” and “Sippy Cup” have driven her YouTube Channel to 50 million views and counting.  “CRY BABY” is “a distinctly 21st century twist of pop, spikily honest and occasionally barbed words served up in cinnamon-dusted melodies,” declared Noisey, “a swirl of R&B curves, stuttering beats, and ratatat hi-hats.” (Martinez) possesses an arrestingly innocent voice that just barely hides its true power,” noted SPIN, “the bend-over-backwards ability to go for the jugular.” “The juxtaposition of promiscuous parents, complicated love, and substances with carnival pop is haunting,” applauded NYLON, but infectious enough to keep you coming back for more…like candy.”
