Biography

Marian Call is a composer and singer currently living in Juneau, Alaska. Her self-produced debut album, Vanilla, is an eclectic yet internally cohesive collection of songs. Her compositions are half study & calculation, half improvisational instinct.

Marian was born into a family of musicians and artists, and she was raised on a steady diet of Bach, Beethoven, and Joni Mitchell in her hometown of Gig Harbor, Washington. Over twenty years she has performed with chamber choirs, jazz combos, early music groups, rock bands, a gospel choir, and experimental music ensembles, and all of these influences (and more) meet and mingle in her own writing. She completed her bachelor’s degree in composition and vocal performance at Stanford University in 2004. After graduation, she spent two years pouring coffee, waiting tables, and listening to good music in Anchorage coffee shops, slowly learning about the craft of songwriting through osmosis and eventually through practice. She continues to write and record in Anchorage and looks forward to collaborating with friendly musicians from all backgrounds.

    Marian Call is too talented for the geek community to keep her all to ourselves. Her music blew away my father, a man who credits the music of Joni Mitchell with saving his life. That's the highest praise the man can give.

    Something I love about Marian's music is that it isn't just something a geek can enjoy! Her songs are passionate and full of their own energy.
