Marina Strah is an award-winning singer/songwriter from Cleveland, OH whose influences infuse blues & pop with catchy lyrics, unforgettable melodies, and an energetic personality.
Strah’s first big step out into the industry was in 2014 when she was named the winner of the 2014 Ohio's Got Talent contest. Shortly after, she went on to win an international cover contest hosted by RyanSeacrest.com. After these contests helped to gain attention and exposure, Strah was named one of cleveland.com's most interesting people of 2015, and was able to release her debut album, Run Away, later that spring.
While working on her second EP, Marina landed one of her earlier releases, "Coming Home", on an episode of CBS's Criminal Minds, reaching thousands of people across the globe and skyrocketing the song all the way up to #9 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts becoming Strah's first charted song.
More recently, in October of 2018, Marina was voted by Cleveland Magazine as the best musician in Cleveland, Ohio. Strah and her band performed alongside other prestigious talents at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; thus fulfilling a long time dream. She was again voted best Singer Songwriter in Cleveland during the 2019 Cleveland Scene Magazine nominations this past April and just opened for LeAnn Rimes at the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Zimmerman Symphony Center this past June. Strah is now enjoying the fresh release of her second EP, Where You Are, this past August and is already itching to get back in the studio after all the positive feedback on the new music.
