Russian-born Los Angeles resident Marina V is an intriguing singer/pianist/songwriter with an incredible life story. Marina's music is a magical blend of her angelic voice, hooky melodies, thoughtful lyrics, and fresh chord progressions, which make this new artist truly special.
Influenced by Tchaikovsky & the Beatles, Marina's music style has been described as an unusual mix of Tori Amos, Jewel & Paul McCartney, but "with her unique phrasing, breathless, smoky-sweet and compelling vocals, she's got a sound all her own" (Artists Studio Magazine).
In January 2008, Marina released "Modern Fairytale", an exquisite new album where elements of reality & dreams co-exist in a wonderful and a creative way.
With subjects such as love & loss, peace & war, struggle & success, togetherness & loneliness, intertwined with vivid fairytale images (ghosts, butterfly/guardian angels & such) Marina creates a magical, yet a very real world, full of highs and lows. From the first notes of "Hope", through the happy beats of "Sunshine Guaranteed" to the longing words in "Babushka", sung in Marina's native Russian, the album is a magical collection of songs, through and through.
