Marina P got a taste for jazz from her parents and cites Nina Simone and Chet Baker as early influences, as well as contemporary hip hop, trip hop and reggae artists. These styles combine in her unique live performance, which will definitely get those hips swaying!
She started performing on the underground scene in her native Italy before moving to Paris where she has made her name writing killer tracks and providing vocals with power and style for an impressive variety of producers.
In France she formed a band called “Surviv’all” and started to get involved in the Soundsystem scene. Her break came when she voiced the massive “Divorce à l’italienne” with Knockengorroch favourites Mungo’s Hi Fi, which was first released on Scotch Bonnet Records in 2007, and she has gone on to release hits with Jahtari, Stand High Patrol and DJ Madd.
In 2013 she released her first full album “My Homeys” on her own label “Homeys records” where she showcases the latest productions with a wide range of producers and shows her ability to go from soul music to digital reggae to bass music and back again. Throughout her career she’s worked with a great number of artists including: Stand High Patrol, Jahtari, Stepart, DJ Madd, Soulvybz, Soul Stereo, Ondubground, Dub All Sense, Cool Runnings, Dub-4, Soom T, and Jahspora.
