Melanie Martinez is an unforgettable 20-year-old artist from 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/Training Wheels Double Feature," and "Sippy Cup" have driven her YouTube Channel to over 180 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."

In reviewing Melanie's New York show on the Cry Baby Tour, The New York Times wrote: ""¦ the songs aren't kid stuff. The music"¦perches prettily tinkling keyboards and concise pop choruses amid the slow, ominous basslines and twitchy percussion of Southern hip-hop - a candy-coated variation on the dirges of Lorde and Lana Del Rey."
