After being rewarded a prestigious scholarship, Marina came to America at the age of 15, by herself. It wasn’t easy, and somewhere between visa issues, crazy odd jobs, missing her family, playing ice hockey and attending a university in Illinois, she worked hard and has quickly blossomed into an international voice. She self-released several albums and, together with her husband/co-writer, Nick Baker, has played over 1,100 shows worldwide.
Marina has written songs for may films, TV shows & ads and has collaborated with Grammy & Emmy winners, platinum-selling artists and legends like Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Aerosmith), received many awards (such as The Los Angeles Music Critic Award, a Hollywood International Entertainment Award and an award from Sir Bob Geldof) and has been praised for her work as a cultural ambassador by Senator Bill Bradley.
Marina's fans have played an instrumental part in her success, sponsoring the creation of all of her albums, including her newest ones: INNER SUPERHERO and BORN TO THE STARS.
