Marina V Biography
Marina V - Piano, Guitar, Vocals
Nick Baker - Co-writer, Guitarist, Drummer

Born in Soviet Russia to a Communist nuclear physicist father and a child psychologist mother, Marina grew up in Moscow singing and making up her own melodies before she could talk. Noticing her daughter's musical talents, Marina's mom insisted that Marina receive her music education. So, Marina went to a school of music each day right after her regular school for eight years.

When she was about ten, Marina decided to play a song of her own for her piano teacher, who scolded Marina saying that it was "simply nonsense". Too young to understand why, Marina didn't realize that the Soviet culture was not the perfect environment for an aspiring young artist with big dreams. She took her teacher's negative comments to heart and put her songwriting on hold. She turned to reading, skateboardifng, torn jeans, karate and swimming, went figure skating in winter and often skipped her music classes.

Then Marina discovered the Beatles. She spent hours playing their songs on the piano and even more hours trying to find more Beatles tapes (which was quite difficult as Western music had just started to appear on the Russian markets). Marina did try to write a few more songs but was too self conscious to keep them.

Everything changed when Marina turned 15. She entered a national competition for a scholarship to study in the U.S.A. for a year and won, beating thousands of Russian peers. That year made Marina realize that the American culture was more nurturing to individual creativity and she decided to move by herself to America - whatever it took.

Marina had to return to Moscow at 16 only to find out her mom was moving to Australia and that her year of study abroad wouldn't count academically in Russia. To finance her trip back to the U.S.A., Marina took a job at a beverage franchise as a secretary and saved up her money whilst helping support her family and studying hard to finish high school.

At 17, Marina finally found a way back to America, but life was far from easy, but soon Marina met Nick Baker, who inspired her to seriously pursue a career in music. At about the same time, Marina entered her college talent competition, sang her original song "Leaving" and won first prize. After receiving dozens of emails and comments from students saying how much her song moved them, Marina finally decided to go into the studio and record her songs. She received so many pre-orders from students & faculty, that she was able to finance the whole recording session and to manufacture the CD (Let Me Dream). Her first show in a little coffeehouse in Jacksonville, IL, was filled to the fire capacity!

A self-described ambitious workaholic, Marina continues touring, writing & recording. "I love writing songs and I really love performing them for my audience. I can't imagine a day without music. I will be doing this forever," she says.
