Melanie has spent the past few months celebrating the release of her debut album, CRY BABY, on a hugely successful sold out North American headline tour. The shows earned rave reviews from The New York Times which noted that "Ms. Martinez's voice -- whispery, sardonic, tearful, furious -- was joined by high-pitched singalongs, throughout verses and choruses," while The Boston Globe calls Melanie "an anti-pop force to reckon with."

Hailed as a stunning singer, performer, and visual presence, Martinez made her late night TV debut this past October with stellar performances of "Pity Party" and "Soap" on NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly; a return visit is set for Monday, December 14th (check local listings). Other high profile TV performances include an appearance on TBS' Conan.

Melanie's debut album, CRY BABY, made an extraordinary entry onto the charts upon release debuting on the Billboard 200 at #6, #5 on the "Top Albums" chart and #1 on the Billboard "Current Alternative Album" chart. In addition, CRY BABY hit #1 on the iTunes Alternative Albums Chart, and #8 on the iTunes Overall Albums Chart. Most recently, Melanie released a captivating double feature "Soap/Training Wheels" video that was both written and directed by Melanie Martinez. Watch here:
