Marina V.: Simple Magic

Marina V.
Simple Magic
(Self-released)

Marina V. (Verenikina) has released a hauntingly striking fourth album in her impressive do-it-yourself music career. The Russian-born singer/songwriter puts together epic songs that are painted with piano pop and vast melodies.

Marina’s strength comes in her vocal deliverance as she uses her voice as another instrument with a wide range of tones. Her passion for the songs she has created is evident throughout the 11 tracks on this disc. Even though I had no idea what she was singing about on “TTechr o tebe” (sung in her native language), I felt pulled into the song with her voice and one singular acoustic guitar accompanying her. That is the power of Marina V.
