"Bass, Vocals, Writing: Marina Christopher Is A Hip Cat"

A product of Mountlake Terrace High School and Central Washington University's strong jazz programs, Marina Christopher has developed into a multi-talentend, highly in-demand artist on the Seattle jazz scene.

She's worked with singers Eugenie Jones, Jacqueline Tabor and Billy Brandt. She leads a soul group called Marina and the Dreamboats. You'll find her playing bass and singing at Sea-Tac Airport now and again, and she brought in five terrific musicians with her to celebrate her latest album, "Must Love Cats."

Through three of her own compelling and sweet compositions, we were left at the end of her session thinking our listeners Must Love Marina Christopher!

"Upstream 2018: From Miguel to Tacocat, here’s who you need to see and who you should get to know"

"...Marina and the Dreamboats
Accidental discovery is part of Upstream’s charm, including the buskers around Pioneer Square. But you might make a point to catch this soul-jazz troupe, led by bassist/vocalist Marina Christopher — named Earshot’s emerging artist of the year in 2017 — busking outside Starbucks on Occidental Avenue. 6 p.m., Starbucks Occidental..." - The Seattle Times


Still working on that hot first release.



After being diagnosed with a tumor that threatens her right arm, Marina Christopher felt a fire to further launch her dream project. Writing and recording in between surgeries and radiation therapy resulted in ‘Marina and the Dreamboats’, a sassy and soulful band performing songs with depth, humor and pure joy. ‘Marina and the Dreamboats’ deliver an addictive blend of jazz, soul, and classic pop and aren’t afraid to throw in a New Orleans second line here and there for good measure. Be sure not to miss the band The Seattle Times called one "you should get to know".
