2004: Marina Lazzara

Marina Lazzara was born and raised in Easton, Pennsylvania where the Lehigh River falls into the Delaware. Her appreciation for music began at a young age when her mother encouraged her and her sisters to sing in bed before falling to sleep. A San Francisco based poet-musician, she graduated from New College of California where she received a Masters of Arts in Poetics and wrote an expressionistic thesis entitled The Ear is the Last Face: the Epistolary-Poems of Emily Dickinson. She has published in various small press magazines as well as a book of poems entitled The Backdrop Line. At the turn of the 21st century, she was a member of the rotating indie-rock trio, Blue Gum Art. Besides ambitious endeavors toward a life of creativity, selfish social activism to enhance the urban imagination, and endless schemes to dodge student loan payments, Marina's current musical projects include singing backup for the gypsy rock band, Liesl's Wet Dress as well as the indie-rock-christian-mock band, Smile God Loves You. She also writes, plays guitar and sings for the electric-folk band, Poetiks, currently playing the Frisco scene and working towards a full-length collection of songs about war, senseless fortune, dirty dishes and really heavy thoughts.
