If you wanted to tell the story of Andrea Esperanza Martinez, you’d have to do it with a musical. Or an opera. Or one really good ballad. That’s because Andrea lives a life of music. Even the way she says her name sounds like a song.
Born into a musical family, Ms. Martinez’s early influences ranged from The Beatles and No Doubt to Broadway musicals and mariachi. In her early teens her father started a family band with her younger brother and sister, and of course she had to be the singer. In school she took advantage of every opportunity to sing whether it be choir, jazz band or musicals. She completed her education at the prestigious American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Hollywood, where she honed her singing, acting, and dancing skills.
Today you can hear her doing what she loves throughout Southern California, singing pop, rock and jazz solo… or with groups such as Live Band Karaoke(LA), 80’s tribute band Pop Gun Rerun (as her alter ego, Roxanne Redlight), the current incarnation of her family band, Funk’d Martini, or at the top of her lungs in her car while stopped in traffic.
