"MArina on Ear to the Ground"

My new friend MArina swung by the CFMU station late one night before leaving Ontario for the summer, and gave a performance that we decided to launch the Happening Hamilton podcast with.
As the performance went on she lead us into her world with songs filled with insight about traveling, friends, lost friends and criminals, with hidden messages that we can all relate to.
Later that week, on James St. North, we joined her in a small intimate environment for a farewell show with The Red Creek Parallel, made up of MArina on vocals, drum machine and keys, and Steve Dishur on Guitar. They played to a packed room of very close friends and family, with accompanying performances by Sam Klass, Marc Perri of The Dirty Sleves, and The Tewlips.

After the jump is the podcast recording of MArina from April 6th, 2011 and pictures from MArina’s going away show. - CFMU


Moving To Appear



Enigmatic Canadian folkstress, Marina MArina, recently released her self-produced, indie album "Moving to Appear". Isolated in the forests of northern Canada for four months of the year MArina communes with the natural world to produce her unearthly harmonies, heartbeat guitar riffs and illuminated lyrics.

Does it get any more independant than this?
MArina really proves to be a talent not only through her songwriting, singing and guitar playing but she also recorded, mixed and mastered her debut album, Moving To Appear.

With a very humble home recording studio and a lonesome cabin out in the wilderness Marina captures the sound of her isolated journey through earnest lyrics and mystifying harmonies.

MArina embodies familiarity. It is not uncommon when talking with strangers for them to say "Do I know you?" The same could be said about her music. A familiar sound. MArina connects the dots between the seen and unseen producing sounds to invoke that "at once far away but at home feeling". Visit for more Marina MArina
