Singer-songwriter Marian Call does things a little differently. Her albums are funded by fans, her songs are about spaceships, avocados, and Windows Vista, and she makes her home in Alaska. She has played in all fifty United States, all across Canada, and even in Europe on a wildly successful Kickstarted concert tour. Her music has been described by fans as “funky acoustic joy jazz” — she plays eclectic, humorous and heartfelt songs that reach across all ages and demographics. Her signature typewriter, rain stick, and kazoo can be heard in most of her performances.
Marian Call’s latest studio album, Something Fierce, is available now at MarianCall.com, as well as on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, and wherever digital music is sold. Her newest album, Live in Europe, is available at exclusively at Mariancall.com and Bandcamp.com.
Call’s concerts are unlike any other, and she is most often compared to other artists noted for their uniqueness and whimsy — songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Regina Spektor, Ingrid Michaelson, and Amanda Palmer. Marian Call releases music and tours under her own power without label support, and her crew of loyal fans on the internet has supported her through five years of intensive travel and recording.
She has an international online following and the enthusiastic endorsement of a number of web celebrities such as Wil Wheaton, Felicia Day, Peter Sagal, and Adam Savage of the Mythbusters. She has played on the Jonathan Coulton Cruise and she has toured with w00tstock and the Ladies of Ragnarok (The Doubleclicks and Molly Lewis), warming the hearts of comic shop denizens across the country.
