After earning applause as one of Southern California’s most talented young artists, Marina was personally signed to Chop Shop Records by label founder Alexandra Patsavas, famed music supervisor for such films and TV shows as Twilight, Gossip Girl, and Grey's Anatomy.
Marina’s new album, Felony Flats, marks a major leap forward for the Portland, Oregon-based singer/songwriter. The self-produced album sees Marina joined by some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest musicians, including guitarist Cody Votolato (Blood Brothers, Telekinesis), bassist Jeff Bond, drummer Joe Plummer (Modest Mouse, Mister Heavenly), and Blitzen Trapper’s Eric Earley, who contributes additional piano and guitars. A carefully crafted collection of twinkling pop gems, Felony Flats is built around Marina’s deft melodic sensibility and wryly humorous lyrical point of view. The record is strongly heartfelt, thanks in part to the tenderness of Marina’s vocal style and the personal nature of her lyrics. Highlighted by songs such as “Notice Me” and “You Are Invisible,” Felony Flats is both richly textured and deeply personal, a remarkable musical journey chronicling loss and love in all their many permutations.
