There's a lot of buzz about Melanie Martinez. She was an outstanding contestant on The Voice last year. She's here Nov 7. Mei caught up with her for this short and sweet Q&A.
Where and when was your first show?
The Vibe Lounge in Rockville Center NY. It was a great experience and I've learned/grown so much since that gig. I actually had to baby sit this little girl while I was there haha. She loved the show.
What band/artist would you consider to be your main influence? Many! The XX, Lana Del Rey, Angus & Julia Stone, Regina Spektor, etc.
What is one of your most memorable or off-the-wall touring experiences? Well every show I've done was very special in their own way. I love hearing the crowd sing along. It's such a lovely moment.
Favorite Food: Chicken nuggets, grilled cheese, honey bbq wings. And anything chocolate. Favorite Drink: Strawberry Lemonade
If you were to have a film/movie based on your career, which actors or band would you select to portray yourself? It would be a Tim Burton movie, and it would be a cartoon/animated movie.
What two words would best describe your music? Interesting and heavy.
