Marina Bousa, a sixteen year old singer/songwriter hails from Wellesley in Massachusetts. Her love for music began as a toddler with her relentless renditions of Rogers and Hammerstein musicals. A chance meeting with a producer took Marina’s talent to a whole new level.
Marina is an incredibly passionate vocalist and self-taught pianist with a distinct original pop-rock style. Though she never formally learned the piano, she manages to baffle some outstanding players with her ingenious time changes and crafty style of playing on her self-penned tunes.
Marina’s style is heavily influenced by classic piano and pop-rock artists such as Elton John and Billy Joel. Her idols in acoustic rock include Alanis Morissette, Jack Johnson, James Blunt, and Jewel.
Marina’s debut EP features a soul bearing and passionate collection of songs that speak to the generation of teens around the world. Her music amplifies the emotional battleground of growing up, falling in love and facing the loss of innocence.
Two of her songs, “Days Go By” and “Where Are We Now?” have made the final cut for a motion picture; her first great milestone and hopefully, the beginning of many.
This summer she completed the Berklee College of Music 5-Week Summer Performance Program.
