Marina Lambrini Diamandis, who is far better known for her stage name, Marina and the Diamonds, is a Welsh singer-writer that burst onto the music scene in 2010 with her debut album, The Family Jewels. She has been experiencing continued success ever since. Coming from humble beginnings, she credits the genesis of her success to one dedicated music teacher she had in high school. The message that teacher delivered to Ms. Diamandis was quite simple: you can do anything you want. She sure took that to heart!
Now, very well-known and successful, she recently shared some information about herself that might otherwise not be common knowledge. Her first album was not really her first album, but rather was the album that she became known for. Like most struggling artists trying to find their way, she had previously released an album, although to not such great acclaim.
She also took heed to the path the Spice Girls took to fame, and tried to scan the newspapers, desperately looking for opportunities to audition for most anything as they did. Marina is also in a new relationship, with Jack Patterson of Clean Bandit. In this case rumors have proven to be true as this budding romance has been in the gossip circles for a little bit now, so she just confirmed that this is indeed the case. In fact, Ms. Diamandis recently went into the studio with her new beau, collaborating on a song called Disconnect, and that which they performed at Coachella this summer.
Finally, and to the dismay of her many fans, Marina did reveal she feels a certain sense of satisfaction from the release of Froot, her third hit album, and is not convinced she will release another, or perhaps not soon anyway. She speaks of a desire to quench her thirst for new challenges. Surely we have not heard the last from this artist.
