Marina V

February 22, 2021

Marina V is an award-winning Russian-American singer/pianist/songwriter with a "hauntingly beautiful" voice (LA TIMES).
Born in Moscow and now living in Los Angeles, Marina has performed over 1,200 concerts worldwide and self-released 12 critically-acclaimed albums.

She's written & licensed multiple songs for films, TV shows and ads (such as PEPSI) and has collaborated with numerous GRAMMY & EMMY winners, platinum-selling artists and legends like Jack Douglas (producer of John Lennon & Aerosmith). Marina has received several awards (including one from Sir Bob Geldof) and has been praised for her work as a cultural ambassador by Senator Bill Bradley.

Supported by her loyal fanbase, Marina has been an innovative independent artist from the very beginning of her career.
She's had each of her albums and tours crowd-funded by fans, raising as much as $35,000 per album. She was among the first artists on Patreon (launching her 2 Songs A Month Club in 2014) and (starting her online concert series a year before livestreaming became widely accepted).

Additionally, Marina was one of the first performers to embrace house concerts as a lucrative touring option, adding private dinner/concerts at her own house for some of her biggest fans.

She's been a GRAMMY voting member for over a decade, and in 2017 she's helped open the first-ever GRAMMY Museum exhibit in Moscow, Russia, at the Kremlin.

In 2019 Marina & her husband/guitarist/co-writer, Nick Baker, welcomed their first child.
