Jonny Martinez (born John Martin Martinez 1969, San Antonio, Texas) is an American of Mexican descent Tejano country singer, producer, arranger, composer, and songwriter, based in Austin, Texas. He has positioned himself as an Educated independent Artist who is interested in recording authentic Tejano, Tex-Mex and country music. He has been recording as an Artist since 1988, to include "Caminos Chuecos" (1995 Joey International), "Ron Con Coca Cola" (1998 Joey International), "Mujer Mexicana" (2001 AMI Records Latin), "La Callejera" (2004 AMI Records Latin), "Lo Mejor de Jonny Martinez" (AMI Records Latin 2007) "Dedicado A Mi Madre" (2010 AMI Records Latin)and "Admirando a Mi Padre" (2015 AMI Records Latin). Martinez, owner and producer of AMI Records Latin, signed Rebecca Valadez in 2005 and received a Grammy Award Nomination in 2006 for Best Tejano Album. In 2007, He also participated as a recording engineer for Ram Herrera, in which the CD was nominated for Best Tejano Album. In 2008 & 2009, Martinez was involved in yet two more CD projects as an engineer with Grammy Nominations under Sunny Sauceda for Tejas Records.

Martinez is following in the footsteps of his father, Tejano Hall of Fame inductee Anselmo "El Chemiro" Martinez, who has traveled coast to coast, recording 13 albums, writing hundreds of world Tejano music and currently singing and writing Christian music with compositions of 146 original songs. Jonny Martinez has ventured into 28 U.S. states, covering Mexico by touring in Monterrey, San Luis, Potosi and Durango.

By age 16, had his first radio appearance on San Antonio’s KEDA-AM radio station, where he sang an old standard hit "La Bamba", and was interviewed by Guero Polkas on KEDA in San Antonio, Texas. In January 1990, Martinez won the All campus Southwest Texas State Talent show as a Sigma Nu by singing his rendition of "La Bamba" and "Twist and Shout". Martinez altered those skills with his Father by recording an album on Carino Records with his new Group called John Martinez y Carino. Martinez continued his education at Missouri Valley College and graduated in 1992 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and an MBA from University of Phoenix. The singer was anxious to record again and began soon after graduating. After interning at Custom Recording Studio with Toby Torres, Jonny Martinez began recording as an engineer by recording Flaco Jimenez. Joey Records signed two solo Artists shortly after on July 6, 1994 Jonny Martinez and Michael Salgado.
