Melanie Martinez, a young and talented singer/songwriter out of New York, put on a show at JBTV Studios. After having great success on the popular television show, The Voice, in 2012, Martinez went on to release music of her own. Her first album, Cry Baby, was released in 2015 and peaked at number 6 on the Billboard 200. Many of Martinez’s songs have a creepy or haunting sound, in fact, her song Carousel was used in the a preview for American Horror Story: Freak Show. She picked up an acoustic guitar for a mellow performance of her ballad, Dead to Me, off of her 2014 EP, Dollhouse.



My condolences
I’ll shed a tear with your family
I’ll open a bottle up, pour a little bit out in your memory
I’ll be at the wake dressed in all black
I’ll call out your name, but you won’t call back
I’ll hand a flower to your mother when I say goodbye
Cause baby you’re dead to me
I need to kill you
That’s the only way to get you out of my head
Oh I need to kill you
To silence all the sweet little things you said
I really want to kill you
Wipe you off the face of my earth
And bury your bracelet
Bury your bracelet
Six feet under the dirt

Rainy days and black umbrellas
Who’s gonna save you now
can you cheat from underground

I need to say sorry
That’s the only thing you say when you lose someone
I used to say I’m sorry
For all of the stupid shit you’ve done
So now I’m really sorry, sorry for being the apologetic one
But if I told you again, if I told you again
You would think I was crazy
