BIO: MARINA ORCHESTRA
Rock n’ Roll soaked in tropical sun vibes. Marina Orchestra will block your blues with their upbeat grooves.
Marina Orchestra is currently releasing a series of singles. The latest single "Mistake" is a cautionary love song “that’s cleverly delivered in sweet vocals and slow and lovely harmonies” (aipate). Also check out “Where There’s Life and "Before You Walk Away" which was named top 5 singles on the WWOZ New Orleans Music show in 2017.
The band regularly plays around the New Orleans area with weekend trips to their surrounding Gulf South region. Formed in 2010 by Justin Powers, the band has released albums "Take on the Silence" (2011), "Oceans" (2014) and EP "Wildlands" (2016). They have also played Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Secret Stages Festival and have shared the stage with Sierra Leonne's Refugee All-Stars, Rusted Root, Future Islands and Peelander Z.
“Marina Orchestra brings sun-kissed, danceable tunes brimming with harmony vocals — like some kind of tropical cocktail served with flowers in it, but for your ears — about the desire to escape the disappointment and frustration of contemporary living.” -Nashville Scene
