Sunita “Sunny” Martini

Sunita “Sunny” Martini wants to make you look like a rock star. Making her way to the Pacific Northwest just a few short years ago, Sunny dove head first into Seattle’s legendary music scene and decided put her photog skills to use, capturing incredible live moments forever on film, or at least on a digital memory card. Armed with a degree in graphic design from Florida State University and plenty of experiments with a camera, she marched straight into the pit, snapped her first pictures, and hasn’t looked back (except to pull up her pants).

Sunny has quickly made a name for herself and you might have seen her work on NadaMucho, Seattle Music News, KEXP, and various radio stations. While you’ll probably find her at shows clad in one of her favorite black hoodies – no matter the weather – she can also be found hunting local restaurants for her next @baconmartini fix or home editing with her cat #EppleyJas on her lap.

Not only is he a multi-media journalist, he is also an accomplished musician. He is the founder of SMI and drives the creative look, feel and branding for the publication. His years of writing, arranging, and performing live music in a variety of genres inform his ability to communicate the message and the mechanics of music. Roth’s work on SMI reflects his philosophy that music is the universal language, and builds community. He believes it has the power to unite people of every race, religion, gender, and persuasion.
