Marian Call is a composer and singer currently living in Anchorage, Alaska. Her compositions are half study & calculation, half improvisational instinct. Her self-produced debut album, Vanilla, is an eclectic yet internally cohesive collection of songs, and she writes and records new music all the time.

Marian was born into a family of musicians and artists, and she was raised on a steady diet of Bach, Beethoven, and Joni Mitchell. 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 tour outside of Alaska as opportunities present themselves, and she looks forward to collaborating with friendly musicians from all backgrounds.

I used to date a real Alaskan Girl for real back in the days of college. I went up to see her a couple of times and you are so on point...That girl could out drink many of us in college...Probably still could today. I've seen her kick a couple of guys asses. Don't get me wrong, she was very pretty. Don't know what she has turned into now...LOL. She always used to say: "Alaska: where the odds are good, but the goods are odd..."Great, funny songs. I thoroughly enjoyed them. Welcome to IAC!!!

I drove a used Volvo wagon for more years than I care to admit...I finally left enough pieces on the road behind me to give the thing away to somebody who was in a mood to care for it properly...lol...the toon sounds groovy - welcome to the site...don't know if I have the brainpower for your blog, but will dip a toe in the water...
