“It’s been a bit since I’ve been on tour and I’m incredibly excited to bring the movie to life on stage,” says Martinez, “I’m putting all of my energy into making it not only visually stunning and pleasing to the senses but also a fun learning experience and a safe place to express yourself and be accepted for exactly who you are.”
“K-12” marks Martinez’s long anticipated follow-up to her RIAA platinum certified, 2015 debut album, “CRY BABY.” Produced by Michael Keenan with the exception of one song produced by Kinetics & One Love (who previously collaborated with Martinez on such hits as “Dollhouse” and “Carousel”), the album serves as a soundtrack companion to an eerily enchanting new musical film, written, directed, and starring Martinez.
