Marina is a diamond

Marina Lambrini Diamandis, better known as Marina & The Diamonds, was born in 1985 in Abergavenny, Wales, UK.
Her father is Greek and her mother is Welsh. She was brought up in the village of Pandy with her parents and her older sister. When her parents separated, Marina moved to Greece when she was sixteen years old to live with her father but returned to Wales two years later.
At the age of 18 she leaves the University in search of her dream; a music career. But it's not until 2008, when Derek Davies discovers her voice and trust her. Finally in 2009, Marina finds success with I'm not a robot.
Vocalist of a style that could rank among the indie pop, new wave, and in his latest work, electronics. She has cited a wide-range of influences such as Daniel Johnston, Blondie, The Distillers, Patti Smith, Tom Waits, Nirvana, PJ Harvey, Kate Bush, Britney Spears, Yann Tiersen, Elliott Smith, Dolly Parton and Madonna.
Here her amazing discography:
Studio albums
2010: The Family Jewels
2012: Electra Heart
Extended plays
2007: Mermaid vs. Sailor EP
2009: The Crown Jewels EP
2010: The American Jewels EP

For me, Marina & The Diamonds has been a light in the way of musical darkness that surrounded me lately. A voice and a spirit like no other. I love her too much because talents as hers are those who wake up hope.
