MARINA CHRISTOPHER is a rising star in the Seattle jazz scene. Earshot Jazz Magazine named her the Emerging Artist of 2017, and she took home the honorable mention from the Kobe-Seattle Jazz Vocalist contest in 2018. Her style of jazz enthusiastically embraces the music of pop and RnB, and her bass playing, singing and song-writing has an infectious feeling of joy. Marina’s trio is a rotating roster of top players in Seattle. Do not miss the artist The Seattle Times declared one “you should get to know”.
Marina was born in Seattle, Washington. She began playing the electric bass at age 11 and began playing the upright bass a year later. She grew up listening to her father play jazz and boogie woogie at the piano. This opened Marina up to wide range of music at a young age.
Marina earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Classical Double Bass Performance from Central Washington University, where she studied with Jon Hamar. After college, she worked in the orchestra of Royal Caribbean cruise ship, entertaining passengers from all over the world with her fabulous bass playing!
