If think you recognize the hauntingly beautiful vocals of Melanie Martinez, you might be right. The up-and-coming singer/songwriter was in the top 6 on Season 3 of The Voice. Now, Martinez is breaking out as a solo star, having just released her debut EP “Dollhouse” on May 20th. She has been dubbed the “American Lorde” by Newsday.

Martinez handles difficult topics, from families not being as they appear on the outside to breakups, through her talented lyricism and unique sound. In addition to her own material, Martinez has also covered “Too Close,” “Seven Nation Army” and “Toxic,” the latter two which have ranked top 5 in downloads on iTunes.

Martinez will kick off her US tour on June 4th in Philadelphia, PA. She will be stopping in Norfolk, VA at FM Backstage on June 5th for a show that is definitely worth checking out.
