Singer ~ Songwriter ~ Arranger
I am Christina Martino, a singer/songwriter from New York, and I LOVE telling stories through music.
Singing was my first love. I don't remember a time when I wasn't singing all over the house (my family was thrilled by that, of course). I grew up doing musical theater and taking voice lessons from teachers that specialized in classical, musical theater, rock, jazz and R&B.
In high school, my passion for songwriting sprouted from my first band experience. I fell in love with writing songs that spoke to both my own personal experience and also connected with people in the audience. I was hooked!
I write in many genres including pop, rock, disco, country and blues, but I specialize in soul/pop music. My influences are, but not limited to, Bonnie Raitt, Allen Stone, ZZ Ward and Stevie Wonder. I hope to create songs promoting strong, positive messages with infectious grooves to back them up.
I am currently studying at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami where I am majoring in Music, Artistry Development and Entrepreneurship and minoring in songwriting and music business. Hope you enjoy the rest of my website!
