ABOUT MARTONE

Martone’s Biography

Martone is a multi-talented artist who continues to make positive strides in the music and entertainment industry. He has recently added yet another success to a long list of accolades in his musical career in becoming a member of Grammys. Some of his many hits include Groove Tonight, Love You I Do Auoo, Chocolate – The Spoken Word Mix and Office Politics.

His most recent album ‘The Evolution of Martone’ #TEOM Deluxe Edition, has been described as ‘both a synthesis of Martone’s roots and future.’ Buddy Nelson – Jamsphere Magazine.

Erick from ElectroWow Music Blog says ‘Martone’s New remixes will sweep you off your feet!’

Pop star Martone’s rich vocal range gives passion filled diversity to his sound. The pulsating deep house beats erupt with power and seduction. His deep and playful vocal energy has a strength and sensitivity which comes across warmly throughout his music. The Evolution of Martone Deluxe Edition,(#TEOM) has exclusive remixes by Duce, DJ Extreme Detroit, and DJ Suspence.

No stranger to the world of music, Martone’s years of experience have earned him both recognition and respect. Martone first realised his passion for entertaining after a televised performance at his first school at just seven years old. Originally from Lansing, Michigan, he is often described as an impassioned visionary, poised to become one of the most recognized names in the entertainment industry. The positive feedback from the audience at a young age of seven, no doubt helped to cement his determination to succeed.

Between ages seven and fifteen he experienced some bullying, but still succeeded in becoming the youngest person to enroll and complete a Continental Cablevision’s Public Access producer’s course. Within a year of this achievement he created, produced and hosted Video Control, a music video program which was broadcast on the public access network. By its third year the show was syndicated and could be seen by viewers in Phoenix, New York City and Cincinnati along with other prominent Cities. During the shows thirteenth year Martone interviewed an impressive line-up of vocalists, musicians and rappers including Will Smith, Queen Latifah, En Vogue, Vanilla Ice and Public Enemy. These artists would later become some of the most recognizable names on the R&B and hip hop music scene.

During 2015 Martone’s music video for Chocolate, spoken word mix premiered on MTV.com, his album cover appeared four times in Times Square Jumbotron. This spent 68 weeks and counting  at number one on Reverbnation and twelve weeks in the top five nationally and internationally on Reverbnation.

In November 2015 he was nominated for entertainer of the year by UBE Ellument Dallas.

Other personal achievements include his success in supporting the gay community as an openly gay African American entertainer. He highlighted same gender loving relationships in a music video as the principal character the music video for Chocolate | Spoken Word Mix, which premiered on Vevo in January this year [2016].

Martone has been trending on social media since June 2015 at least 3 times per week with hash tag #Martone and #TEOM using www.Bing.com

The development of his album has been inspired by some of the more positive things in life like love, hanging out with friends and clubbing; all of which Martone holds dear. A quote from Martone says ‘for all that I experienced in my personal life, the odds were against me. I defied the odds and when someone told me what I couldn’t do, I absolutely showed them that I could.’ The making of this new album has not happened without some very difficult and raw emotions as disturbing events in the news unfolded during the final production. Forty nine victims were gunned down during a massacre in Pulse Night Club Orlando. Shortly after the news took another devastating turn with the killings of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and the ambush of five police officers which took place in Martones home town of Dallas, Texas.

Martone made the compassionate decision to donate 10% of all sales of #TEOM to the Pulse Night Victims Fund and various victims of gun violence organizations in the United States, to help educate and prevent gun violence.
