Amber Martin

Amber Martin is a celebrated NYC vocalist, cabaret star, and comedic monologist. Named one of the Top Performers of the Year by The New Yorker, Martin brings a combination of cabaret, belting vocals, and no-holds-barred comedy to her live, raucous, genre-hopping musical performances. She previously made her Broadway debut in Tales of the City at the Music Box Theater. Some of her performances include appearing with Joan Rivers on Celebrity Apprentice and opening for Rivers’ live NYC shows. You can hear her belting out featured vocals on the Scissor Sisters’ single “Inevitable” (co-produced with Pharrell). She was a featured vocalist with comedian Sandra Bernhard at Town Hall in New York City and has twice been a featured guest on Bernhard’s Sirius XM radio show, Sandyland. Martin has performed her own solo shows in New York City and New Orleans, as well as at the TBA Festival, Treefort Festival, Outsider Festival, and the Jazz and Blues Festival in Altomonte, Italy, and has recurring NYC residencies at Alan Cumming’s Club Cum­ming, Joe’s Pub, and the Cutting Room. Martin continues to evolve as writer, curator, choreographer, and star of her own performances, The Days of My Lives and Three Women: Joplin, Midler & Nyro (Solo Artist Residency at Joe’s Pub, NYC), Hi! (Best Solo Performance Drammy Award), Wigshop, Stoned Soul: In Love with Laura Nyro (Residency at Feinstein’s/54 Below) and Janis: Undead (a continuing national and international tour).
