16-year-old Bay Area artist Marteen, who recently made his Warner Bros. Records debut with the spicy, soulful single “Sriracha,” is joining label mate Dua Lipa on her North American tour this November as main support.
WATCH – MARTEEN “SRIRACHA”:
Dua Lipa’s “The Self-Titled Tour” kicks off November 20 in Boston, and will feature Marteen for all seven East Coast dates, including stops in New York, Chicago, D.C., and Nashville. For further information and to purchase tickets, go to dualipa.com/live/.
The young singer and songwriter is continuing to make waves both at home in the Bay Area, where he just wrapped a series of high school shows, as well as nationally, where he’s earning press love from Just Jared, Galore Mag, HollywoodLife, and The New York Times, who praise “Sriracha” as “A post-Lil Yachty melodic piano-rap ditty,” that’s “Absurd like a Lonely Island sketch and aw-shucks tender like MattyB,” as well as Marteen for his ability to be “both in on the joke and also very much not above it.”
Warner Bros. Records, in association with platinum-selling music producer J.R. Rotem’s new label Lyon Estates, signed Marteen earlier this year, off the strength of his independently released 2016 mixtape Focused. Both the mixtape and “Sriracha” were produced by Rotem (Jason Derulo, Nicki Minaj), and introduce Marteen’s self-described “Modern take on nineties R&B with a little Bay Area edge.” Marteen is currently finishing up new material in the studio to be released in the coming months.
In addition to the dates with Dua Lipa, Marteen will perform as part of Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in Chicago, opening for Khalid and Amber Mark at the sold-out show on November 29 at The Aragon Ballroom. A full list of tour dates is below.
