Martella began dancing at the age of three, and delivered his first live performance in The Nutcracker. He began playing the piano at age five. Not long after, he was performing in school plays and being seen in local commercial spots. At age six, he began acting and vocal training, and by 7 years old he was working both print and national commercials.
By age 10, Martella was ready for Los Angeles, California, landing a guest spot on Fox’s Cracking Up and a recurring role on Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, where he developed his own character for the role of Scoop. The following summer, Vincent received his first film role working opposite Rob Schneider in Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo. Martella has guest starred on Fox’s comedy, Stacked and lent his voice to the feature film Bad News Bears.
In 2005, Martella landed as a main role in Everybody Hates Chris as Chris's best friend Greg.
Martella's voice is heard in the Emmy nominated Disney animation series, Phineas and Ferb as Phineas Flynn. He is one of the few voice actors on the show to significantly alter his voice to play their role.
He also played the part of Hope Estheim on the English dub of the video game, Final Fantasy XIII.
He recently recorded his first album "Time Flies By", playing the piano and singing. The album was written and co-produced by Vincent and is available on iTunes. He lives in Florida with his mother, father and three siblings. Many videos are on YouTube featuring him singing songs such as "Imagine" by John Lennon.
