Amber Martin with special guest Lost Lockets
Show Description“…the big, moving Bessie Smith-like sound of the chill-inducing Texas-born singer and actress Amber Martin”
-The New Yorker, Hilton Als (Best Performers of 2010)
“Her fullness of voice and spot-on characterizations put the show in another dimension. Martin is a powerful woman whose heightened sense of the ridiculous goes head to head with her distinctly American voice.”
-The New Yorker
“The pitch-perfect, multi-talented Martin seamlessly floats between multiple costumes, personae and skits, never once leaving the stage, and carrying the calm of a seasoned performer”
-The New York Times
"A chameleonic performer with a mind-blowing voice, Amber Martin dissolves completely into her original characters (and a spot-on Reba McEntire)"
-Time Out NY
“I haven't laughed like that in I don't know when. Amber is the real deal, a fucking scream, like I Love Lucy on acid beyond the pale! I think she is brilliant!”
One of Time Out NY’s ten New York women every gay man should know and be obsessed with, celebrated vocalist and comedic performance artist, Amber Martin premieres her new show for one night only at Joe’s Pub.
In her own exceptional way, Martin blends music, raunch, stories, movement, and acid-capped comedy with a pristine, multi-octave solo singing voice. Amber has seasoned her previous performances with rotating celebrity collaborators: Bridget Everett, Justin Vivian Bond, Casey Spooner, John Cameron Mitchell, Jake Shears and Karen Black, to name a few. Just wait and see who will be joining her this time! Also with opening artists, Lost Lockets from Portland, OR.
