Exclusive Interview: Isa Marina

Isa Marina is a dynamic female artist and singer-songwriter from New York who is not afraid to covers important issues in her music. This includes self-confidence, romance and life experiences in general. By combining Latin and R&B styles, Marina has created an ideally unique sound to accompany her delicate, yet powerful, vocals. In an exclusive interview with CelebMix, the singer opened up about her recently released EP, inspirations and more.

What can you tell us about your new EP, True Colors, and your experience recording it?

The experience was a true testament of our team's determination. The songs were recorded between Pittsburgh and LA, so matching up people's schedules, traveling, experimenting with new sounds and writers, yet making sure we kept the same vibe throughout while working in different studios, was not easy. But I think that in turn, it plays a major role in what makes the EP so special. Also, being forward thinking critics of our own work and really narrowing down on our best tracks throughout the process. We went through a lot of songs before we settled on the strong, final four that made it to the EP.

What inspired this EP?

Just really coming into my own as a person and embracing my upbringing; my culture. I really wanted to solidify my niche sound, and most importantly get some things off my chest. I was going through the beginning stages of finally releasing an expired situation-ship; I wanted to be direct and feel free. All the songs on the EP gave me that.



Do you have any inspirations in the music industry currently?

I love so many artists right now: Nipsey Hussle (God rest his soul), 2Pac, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Karol G, Natti Natasha, Etta Bond, Kehlani, A$AP Rocky. They inspire me for so many different reasons. But the core bond is that they all worked super hard to achieve their dreams and maintain their careers; their music is a diary of their lives. I relate to that experience on so many levels.

For people who recently discovered your music, what do you want them to know?

I want them to feel inspired and hopeful. I hope my music can bring those feelings to them.



What would you consider a highlight of your career thus far?

It would have to be performing on MTV's TRL; I cannot wait to go back to promo my own original music!

If you could open for any artist or band this summer on tour, who would it be and why?

That's a tough question! But it would have to be…Anne-Marie. I've always loved her music. Her music is fun and vivacious, but very truthful (great storytelling). I think it would vibe well with the sound I bring to the table.

What can fans look forward to in the near or distant future? Music videos, tour, etc.

Expect a tour very soon!

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."
