A singer/songwriter originally from London, Marina’s music crosses a number of genres. Her music has been described as acoustic, Americana, Blues, Country and folk but while it doubtless draws inspiration from all these sources her voice and style are uniquely and identifiably her own.
She has been compared to some of the best vocalists in the music world, from Stevie Nicks to Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash to Nanci Griffiths, Patsy Cline and more. Have a listen & make your own mind up about who springs to mind when you hear her sing.
