Marina And The Diamonds: Marina and the Diamonds emerged from obscurity after placing second on the BBC's annual list of the year's breakout acts. The hard-to-define musical stylings of the singer-songwriter range from indie-pop to electronica. After two headlining club tours, Marina and the Diamonds tour dates have been booked on the opening stage of Katy Perry's international California Dreams Tour throughout 2011.

The Welch singer derived her stage name from her birth name, Marina Lambrini Diamandis. She explains that she is Marina and her fans are the Diamonds (which is the English translation for Diamandis). She embarked on her musical journey after dropping out of college to produce her own music. She recorded her debut EP Mermaid VS. Sailor on a Mac computer and released it independently in 2007. She was soon discovered by Neon Gold Records who booked Marina and the Diamonds tour dates until she was signed to Warner Music Group.

In addition to garnering a runner-up spot on the BBC Sound of 2010 poll, Marina and the Diamonds has received nominations and awards from several industry organizations. She won the MTV Europe Music Award for Best UK & Irish Act in 2010 and she won the Virgin Media Music Award for Best Newcomer. She was also nominated for the prestigious Brit Award for Critics' Choice.

Marina and the Diamonds released a second EP The Crown Jewels in 2009 which featured her single "I am Not a Robot", which became a Youtube sensation. Marina has crafted a unique style that has garnered her comparisons to Gwen Stefani and Ke$ha. She describes her look as "vintage, cheerleader, and cartoon". Her vocals are as eclectic as her clothes, her singing ranges between baritone vocals and hip-hop rhymes. In 2010 she released her debut LP The Family Jewels which contained the smash singles "Hollywood" and "Oh No!". The album debuted in the top five of the UK Albums chart and received a silver certification. Marina and the Diamonds is as visual as she is musical, her videos embody her eclectic style and have ensured her heavy rotation on MTV Europe.

Since releasing her debut album, Marina and the Diamonds tour dates were booked internationally on the Family Jewels Tour and The Burger Queen Tour. Marina and the Diamonds is currently in the studio working on her sophomore set Jealousy which is slated for a 2012 release. In the meantime, all you Diamonds out there can catch Marina and the Diamonds tour dates alongside Katy Perry this summer. Mariana and the Diamonds concert dates are booked at certain stops along the California Dreams Tour. Don't miss out when this rising pop darling comes to a stage in your area.
