What’s In-Store Music’s Bob Catania gathered up the pups and Karen to see old friend Marina V perform a concert for 88.5 FM (KCSN) last Sunday at their studio at The Village at Westfield Topanga. Bob and Karen met Marina playing in a Borders book store 13 years ago and began a long time friendship.
Marina came to the U.S. from Moscow with basically the clothes on her back and has built a huge following though endless touring -- closing in on 1,000 dates -- with her husband Nick. Marina was at the forefront of the DIY artist era and learned how to utilize social media and crowd funding before most other artists, allowing her to record and release 10 albums! She has also been a pioneer in different forms of releasing music such as her "2 Songs A Month Club..” Her songs are amazing and tell a story or evoke memories from her life. Her new album “Born To The Stars” is available now.
