Martin Jr. is a NYC artist that's on the rise, with his new music. Martin Jr. was born and raised in Provence, Rhode Island. He has since moved to New York City to pursue his dreams in music. This twenty-six year old artist is ready to hit the music scene with his melodic harmonies and smooth lyrics. Martin Jr. has finally graced us with his debut release “Alive”.
This song goes really hard! I can totally hear it in today’s Hip Hop and R&B radio rotation. Martin Jr. has a sound similar to a blend of Ty Dolla $ign and his own new vibe that he brings to the table. "Alive" is one of those songs you can sit around listening to it on repeat, no matter the occasion, Martin Jr. has you covered. "Alive" has an into that will entice you, we loved the song opening up into guitar. It lulls you into the song, getting you fully ready for the beat to drop.
I really appreciate Martin Jr.'s lyricism throughout "Alive". It’s makes you want to love the life you live with it’s catchy hook. Sometimes we all take life, people and the things we have for granted. A nice reminder to take a step back and remember everything we have, even the little things we don't tend to appreciate on the daily. Martin Jr.'s vocal layers of sound are one of my favorite things about the R&B sound and he uses this well. Two big thumbs up for “Alive” - we can't wait to hear what's next!

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Peace. I’m Martin JR.
Can you give us a brief history of your musical career?
I had a passion for music since I was 6 years old. Started out beat boxing then began to rap at the age of 8. I released a few early demos through out the years for local audiences in my hometown and have always gotten cool responses back.
How did you come up with your stage name? Is there a meaning behind it?
Yeah my stage name is actually apart of my real name. I’m a Jr and my father is a Sr. I always felt best keeping my real name and remaining authentic to myself as an artist.
Do you write your own music? Can you tell us a bit about your writing style?
I write all of my music. Usually I choose an instrumental that speaks to me. Then I come up with the lyrics and melody for the chorus, shortly after I begin to write my verses.
We’re really into your new song Alive! Can you tell us a bit about it?
Thank you appreciate it. Alive is my new single I released in January 2019. Produced by KontraBandz a really dope producer. It’s just one of those songs to chill to or just vibe out with and have fun.
Where did the inspiration behind the song come from?
The inspiration just comes from being alive in the moment and just appreciating life as it is. While also fantasizing on the successes that we hope for in the future.
What’s next for you?
I plan on releasing more music and videos this year and also continuing to keep building a genuine relationship with music lovers across the world.
