Melanie Martinez is a remarkable 18-year-old artist from Long Island, New York – a stunning and provocative singer, songwriter and visual presence. Her incredibly unique and arresting performances on the last Fall season of The Voice brought her to #5 in the competition, yielded 2 Top Five songs on iTunes (her covers of “Seven Nation Army” and “Too Close), and earned her 92,000 Twitter followers and over 100,000 fans on Facebook. Her cover of “Toxic” also had huge staying-power on iTunes. Now Melanie looks to release her original music to these literally clamoring fans; she currently is recording new songs with producers Robopop and Kinetics & One Love. Her songwriting at her young age foreshadows the resonance of both Fiona Apple and Regina Spektor, and her ambition to make a commercial mark is fierce. Melanie has played sold-out club shows all across the United States in 2013. Look for her fan-funded video to her first single, "Dollhouse," in early 2014.

Mike Squillante is an up-and-coming pop/rock singer/songwriter/guitarist. He's been writing and recording original songs since the age of 12. Mike released his self-produced debut full length LP in November 2010, entitled "Backward Glances, Second Chances." The album can be found on iTunes and Spotify. He has performed one-on-one for Grammy-winning artist John Mayer after being selected by the Berklee College of Music (his Alma mater) songwriting staff. Recently graduated from Berklee with a degree in songwriting, Mike currently lives in NY and gigs regularly around the New York club scene. In addition to playing out with his band, Mike maintains a thriving YouTube channel with over 1,000,000 total views and 15,000 subscribers, where he showcases his talents as a multi-instrumentalist, producer, filmmaker, and songwriter. After winning the Perez Hilton 'Can You Sing?' contest on two separate occasions and brief stint on NBC's The Voice, he was able to successfully fund the production for his next release by raising a whopping $12,000 via Kickstarter from fans all over the world.
