The quirky and flamboyant Marina Diamandis is gaining a following for her inventive songwriting, theatrical stage shows and dazzling style. If a young Liza Minnelli was starring in a Broadway musical telling Tori Amos's life story, it might sound like this.

The half-Welsh, half-Greek singer uses her deep, dramatic voice to create overblown pop. She gets inspiration by studying DVDs of Britney Spears and covers Gwen Stefani on stage.
