Independent Recording Artist Marina V Tours U.S. In Her Prius (and Gets Sponsorship From Toyota)

Moscow-born award-winning recording artist Marina V is embarking on a 7-week coast-to-coast U.S. Summer Tour (called The C Minor To Shining Sea Tour) in her Toyota Prius.

The Los Angeles-based singer and her husband/co-writer and guitarist, Nick Baker, have mapped out, booked and organized the national tour entirely on their own.

They enlisted help from fans, many of whom are financing and hosting several of the shows.
Toyota Santa Monica is partially sponsoring the tour, which will take Marina and Nick on an 8,500 mile 25-concert journey across the United States. They will visit National Parks, historical landmarks, and will be making a documentary along the way.

This kind of tour is extremely unusual, as independent artists like Marina don't have the big-moneyed marketing machine of the record industry behind them. By being smart and crowdsourcing, Marina V is managing to pull it off.

"I am extremely grateful to my incredible fans for helping out with this tour.
They're helping us organize the shows, getting us places to stay, publicizing the tour and even helping us make the new tour tshirts!" comments Marina, whose last few albums have been sponsored by her worldwide fanbase (she raised almost $30,000 via her website, MarinaV.com, for her new album, INNER SUPERHERO.)

Toyota Santa Monica is partially sponsoring the tour of the environmentally-conscious husband & wife duo.

"Nick & I are very excited to have Toyota Santa Monica sponsoring a part of this tour," says the red-headed singer/songwriter, a recent recipient of The LA Music Critic Award and an international award from Sir Bob Geldof.

"Being that we're touring in our Prius, we thought it would be a cool idea (and a perfect match!) to contact Toyota. Toyota Santa Monica jumped onboard," Marina adds.

"Nick & I have played over 700 concerts worldwide, but this will be our longest tour so far. We are really thrilled about it, and excited to see parts of the U.S. we have not yet seen. And I feel very lucky to have such love and support from my listeners and to be living my dream."

The tour started in Pasadena on June 7th and will take Marina and Nick through 24 states. It will include several unusual venues such as wineries, living rooms, libraries and even a church. The Tour Wrap Party will be held in the heart of Hollywood at The Record Parlour, a vintage record store with a stage.
