Creative Artists Agency has signed singer/songwriter and director Melanie Martinez, who was previously represented by ICM Partners.
The 23-year-old’s first album Cry Baby was released in 2015 and went on to be certified platinum, hitting No. 6 on the Billboard 200 and amassing more than two billion global streams. Her singles “Dollhouse” and “Pity Party” both charted on the Billboard Hot 100 and were both certified platinum, and nine other songs went on to become certified gold.
Martinez conceived and directed the 13 music videos from Cry Baby, which have garnered 1.4 billion views and counting. Her Youtube channel currently has more than seven million subscribers and she has 5.4 million followers on Instagram.
This summer, Martinez will release her highly anticipated follow-up album, paired with a 90-minute feature film written, directed by, and starring herself. She will continue to be managed by Ron Shapiro Management. Her attorney is Debra White at Loeb & Loeb and she is signed to Atlantic Records.
