A native of Baldwin, New York, Martinez grew up listening to her father's Beatles records and hip-hop music. In 2012, while still in high school, Martinez auditioned for, and won a spot on, NBC's The Voice with her performance of Britney Spears' "Toxic."

In 2014, Martinez released the Kinetics- and One Love-produced EP Dollhouse on Atlantic Records.
