Artwork by Patrick RaceAnnouncing a NEW Live Holiday EP to get us all through the Christmas season: Yippee Ki Yay by Marian Call.

These eclectic songs span the holiday experience, from liturgical plainsong and heartfelt hymns to an old-fashioned Airing of Grievances.  Listen or download for free at Bandcamp today!

**Note: the title track has grown-up language, because it’s quoting a classic holiday movie that is for grown-ups.  All other tracks are family-friendly as usual.**

 

 For the annual Worldbuilders fundraiser, Marian Call and Patrick Race filmed “Never Measure,” Marian’s favorite soup recipe in song!  The recipe is for smoked salmon potato corn chowder (ingredients and process in text below).  And keep an eye out for the Biscuit Cheat Code, which unlocks 2-ingredient 10-minute PERFECT biscuits.

Worldbuilders is a fundraiser for Heifer International, created by Kingkiller Chronicles author Patrick Rothfuss.  It is full of amazing, and you should check it out! . . .

Artwork by Karen Luke FildesAfter six long years, Got to Fly has returned on CD!

Got to Fly is my second album from 2008, produced by Quantum Mechanix and inspired by Firefly and Battlestar Galactica.  Although young and raw and eclectic, it remains one of my fans’ favorite records, and I sing songs from it most every night on tour.

The first printing was a limited edition of 1000 signed and numbered discs, and those have been sold out for years.  But this November, by your many many requests, I’ve released a new CD in a recycled materials CD wallet, with all new artwork by Karen Luke Fildes (yup, my Mom)!  They’re not in fancy jewel cases, it’s a little more reserved packaging than the limited edition, but I am sure you’ll enjoy it.  It costs $12.95 plus S&H, and through Bandcamp we ship to Canada and abroad at or below cost.  The CD’s will begin shipping Nov. 24-25.

The new CD’s should arrive in time for the holidays for the US and Canada if you order soon.  If you’re overseas or in Canada and want priority shipping just in case, contact me at marian@mariancall.com and I’ll send you a special invoice, we’re happy to accommodate you and we’ll ship exactly at cost.

If you’ve already purchased the digital album and it’s a financial hardship for you to get the CD but you reeeeeally want it, I dig. Email me at marian@mariancall.com and I can get it for you at a steep discount, because hey, you already bought the music.  You shouldn’t have to pay twice.

If you already love Got to Fly, have a listen again, and tell a friend about this good little record that could!
