Christina Martin

CEO,
Backstage Artist Lounge
Nashville / LA, USA
@ontour4ever
Christina led investor relations across Ireland, Scotland, England, France, Monaco, Canada and all US territories. She became an investment firm’s international ambassador, raising $2 billion in new assets before she was even old enough to rent a car. During a stint in the UK, Christina founded Equity Strategic Relations with senior studio execs at Pinewood Studios. From there, Christina's new company became a central force at Sundance, Toronto and other film festivals. Front row to LA and NY fashion weeks, Christina was swept into the world of Emmys, Oscars, Globes, VMAS and Grammys. In 2007, Christina traveled to Venice with Emilio Estevez, Lindsay Lohan, Freddy Rodriguez and Christian Slater. Eventually, Christina's passion became music…specifically, rock n roll. Her company gradually shed film and celebrity clientele, replacing them with a new set of rock star projects. Becoming a VJ for Music Plus TV, Christina played around on camera on the show “10 Deep,” and produced their show “Hollywood Downlow.” She partnered up with KROQ's Stryker to produce artist events for Avenged Sevenfold, Angels and Airwaves, Fall Out Boy and Saosin. Christina starred on VH1's “Rockband 2 The Stars” alongside Sebastian Bach and Alice Cooper. As part of the show, Christina performed at Viper Room and Staples Center, opening Staples Center for Panic! At The Disco. Business grew organically for Christina, as one thing led to another. Brokering a long term relationship with KPNT 105.7 The Point, Christina produced branded backstage lounges for Wolfmother, Papa Roach, The Killers, Bullet For My Valentine, Staind, Offpsring, Sum 41, Breaking Benjamin and Seether. Ultimately, Christina reinvented her company, branding it the Backstage Artist Lounge. Backstage Artist Lounge hosts preeminent touring rock bands backstage at their largest festival tour dates all across North America…and the Caribbean now thanks to VH1's Best Cruise Ever and Kid Rock's Chillin' the Most Cruise. Backstage Artist Lounge™ Tour is sponsored by hundreds of corporate partners including Wicked Audio, Bella Voda Water, Tippmann Sports, Firefly Vodka, Civil Society, CREAM, Westone, Rollerblade, Toku, Bacardi, Clif Bar and Line 6. Backstage Artist Lounge has become the leading platform for brands to integrate effectively in the touring music industry. Revered by rock royalty, BAL has hosted Motley Crue, Godsmack, Alice In Chains, Slipknot, Wolfmother, Shinedown, Theory of a Deadman, The Killers, Rancid, Rise Against, Three Days Grace, Buckcherry, Hoobastank, Blue October, Sickpuppies, The Used, Charm City Devils, Saliva, Chevelle, Puddle of Mudd, Jet, Saving Abel, Flyleaf, Halestorm, Cavo, Loaded, Street Sweeper Social Club, Billy Talent, Korn, Weezer, Deftones and Eminem just to name a few.
