For singer/songwriter Marina Chello, music has been everything for as long as she can remember. Originally from Uzbekistan, Marina learned English from singers like Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, and Celine Dion. After years of voice and music classes, Marina began writing her own songs, eventually reaching out to notable producers via her Myspace Page. She greatly impressed legendary producer and Bad Boy Records President Harve Pierre, and is now preparing to release her debut album, What’s Done Is Done, on Crazy Joint/Bad Boy.
There is significant excitement brewing around the young singer as she finishes recording her album, a heartache-heavy hybrid of next-level pop and R&B. Her single “Sideline” is already being picked up by Top 40 stations across the country and continues to gain momentum, while her uptempo track “What’s Done Is Done” has also been snapped up by DJs across the country. A flurry of glowing online profiles and reviews on sites including Elle Girl, Teen, Young Hollywood, Alloy, MySpace and Imeem, just to name a few, have solidified the buzz, as fans hurry to upload their own versions of her songs on YouTube.
Since she grew up singing in several languages, including Russian, Spanish, and Italian, she brings a unique perspective to pop music. Her sound blends all the elements that have gone into the making of a young artist on the eve of great success – the inherently relatable songwriting that reflects a childhood glued to the radio, the passion of a young girl raised between two cultures, and the energy of collaborating with some of today’s most notable producers. With What’s Done Is Done, it’s clear that there’s a new voice on the scene, and as “Sideline” continues its climb up the charts, Marina is ready to take center stage.
