January 2016 saw Folkstock Records release Marina's latest album This, That & The Other. A self produced & recorded album, she has come a long way from making those first tentative steps...
Marina came to performing late in life, however, very soon after making the decision to "come out of the kitchen" to widen her audience she was awarded Arts Council funding, via the Escalator Project, to record a debut album, Somewhere Down The Line, using this as a platform she has since reached audiences never previously thought possible.
The self penned song Cry won the Oldies Composers Competition, judged by BBC Radio 2 presenters including Ken Bruce, Bob Harris, Johnny Walker and the late Sir Terry Wogan, resulting in Anthony Head singing the song live on ITVs This Morning, and gaining airplay on numerous radio stations including the BBC.
Marina was nominated on Soundcloud as Soundclouder of the day with the song The Guilty One and also added to their International Women's Day playlist, this has resulted in thousands of plays all over the world.
