Balancing a life of leisure with a humble dedication to his craft, Los Angeles-based musician Marino makes music that mirrors his life. Guided by authenticity, the songwriter, producer, and proven artist discovered his passion for music during his formative years in South Florida playing and performing in bands inspired equally by both pop and punk. Marino’s youth was one defined by collaboration and peer enlightenment- virtues that forged him into the leader he is today. Walking a tight rope between hip-hop, pop, and electro-R&B, Marino’s music today rejects modern genre queues and instead embraces the formless nature of sound itself.
In addition, his writing credits and collaborations include MOD SUN, blackbear, grandson, Charlotte Sands, Huddy, Justus Bennetts, Cassadee Pope, Lil Aaron, Bad Wolves, Lil Lotus, SMRTDeath, Fame On Fire, No Love For The Middle Child, Boon, John Harvie, MKLA, Jacob Sartorious, Tana Mongeau, Lauren Sanderson, poutyface, payton, Terror JR. and many more..
Notably, Marino’s influential collaboration with MOD SUN and blackbear on their single “Heavy” dominated streaming charts by tapping a cool 1 million streams in just 24 hours. At the beginning of 2022 Marino joined Fame On Fire to assist in the writing of their single 'Plastic Heart' that reached #1 at Sirius Octane as well as breaking into the Top 40 at Active Rock radio. With over 40 million streams spanning his own discography, a handful of sync placements with MTV, and a deal with Lava Publishing/Primary Wave, Marino’s innovation manifests triumph. A pathfinder behind the scenes and in front of the mic, Marino’s relentless effort to discover newness in both sound and spirit is preserved by a bold appreciation for life’s simplicities. The world as his canvas, Marino translates life’s little moments in love and laughter into songs that are at once celebratory and deeply affecting.
