Amber is the real deal, a fucking scream, like I Love Lucy on acid beyond the pale! I think she is brilliant! - Sandra Bernhard This is one broad who has a voice and needs her own TV show. NY Press Amber Martins hilarious characters and soulful voice bring me back to the New York City of my dreams, where the most talented ones rule. Where a girl with a voice and a heart of gold can make it on sheer talent alone. Amber is that girl. James Kaliardos, co-founder of V Magazine "Ms. Martin is an artistic brick shit-house of a performer. Her blend of rubber-faced, pitch perfect singing and backwoods showmanship make for a musical trip-out you wont easily forget." Jake Shears, Scissor Sisters Like watching Ruth Draper after shes come back from an acid trip during which she thought she was Janis Joplin... Fight for a ticket. -- Willamette Week In the footsteps of comic character comediennes such as Lily Tomlin, Carol Burnett, and Whoopi Goldberg, acclaimed vocalist and comedic performance artist, Amber Martin brings her award winning chops to San Francisco.
