Does size matter? Dynamite comes in small packages, and marina is a little
blond chick that weighs in at a mere 100 lb. plus tax.The size that matters here
is the size of Marina`s heart- it is as big as Texas (which just happens to
be her born-and-raised home state). Her super-sized heart beats in the
chest of a beautiful, young woman on a mission to open your mind and rock
Born in Austin during a summertime heat wave, she arrived in this world
smoking and she has never cooled off. Her mom, who still lives in Austin,
bought Marina her first guitar and she played it till her little kid
fingers bled- and then she played it some more! When Marina turned 12 or
13, her mom bought her a Marshall stack instead of a party dress. Marina`s
semi-autobiographical composition, "Shero", reflects her deep feelings of
love and gratitude for a parent able to appreciate and support a daughter`s
indefatigable pursuit of the "beat of a different drummer". A young woman
in a man`s world (especially the chauvinistic world of rock & roll), could
be forgiven for getting discouraged and giving up. Giving up is not
something that someone as determined as marina does very often.It is simply
not in her makeup to quit, and her persistence and resilience has paid off
in a fiercely loyal regional following. Without a doubt, the most intense
of these fans are the Harley-Davidson riding crowd who loves serious guitar
players and honest, unpretentious, hard working people in general.
Marina enjoys the intimacy of performing acoustic-solo in small rooms and
she has begun to do this type of gig more and more frequently. She
appreciates any venue where the song-writing is the star and she has
adapted well to the demands of being the dazzling delivery system for her
musical creations. Here,the embedded message contained in the lyrics never
gets drowned out or stepped on by the roar of a high-intensity rock band.
Yes,size does matter and sometimes smaller is bigger. Big things are in
Marina`s future. Don`t miss the artistry and excitement of the pretty
little lady with the pretty big bang!
