Marti Jane Robertson began her career as sound engineer in 1977 in his hometown of Seattle. Under the expert wing of Peter B. Lewis, he learns the secrets of radio and television post-production. A year later, her love of music and desire to grow professionally naturally led her to move to New York City, where she was hired as an assistant at Automated Sound Studios, one of the most important jingle and record studios of the United States. 70s and 80s.

Driven by engineers like Elliot Scheiner e Artie Friedman, e lavorando quotidianamente con i più talentuosi musicisti e produttori del Paese, la sua carriera progredisce rapidamente. Due anni e mezzo dopo, a 22 anni, Marti lascia lo staff di Automated Sound per intraprendere la sua carriera di free-lance. Inizia a lavorare regolarmente in studi storici quali A&R e The Power Station (che diventa Avatar), The Hit Factory e Skyline, e accresce le sue competenze collaborando con artisti e produttori come Marcus Miller, Phil Ramone, David Sanborn, Don Grolnick, Michael Franks e molti altri.

She felt the need to grow not only professionally but also personally, and in 1986 Marti moved to Milan. Her years of experience as a sound engineer and musician (she studied clarinet, saxophone and flute during school and privately with Eddie Daniels at NYC) opened the door to many new experiences. In addition to working in the studio, Marti began working live as a FOH engineer and in 1990 followed the Eros Ramazzotti European Tour. It was the beginning of a new phase in her career. In the following years, she worked with the most important artists of the Italian pop and jazz scene, both in the studio and live.

The desire to contribute to the production of quality products even for small customers, jazz musicians and young musicians, pushes Marti to invest in her own structure. A "mobile" studio was created for recording and mixing that works both at home and on-location. Her new autonomy allowed her to leave Milan, and in 2002 she moved to Sardinia. While continuing to travel and work on the continent, Marti set up a complete direction at home where she worked on editing, mix and mastering. Broadband allowed her to work with customers even remotely. In 2016, she opened janeStudio, a recording room, with a record label, MGJR Records.
