She released her first three albums, Vanilla, the Song of the Month Project, and Got to Fly in 2007 and 2008. In 2010 she undertook a tour of all 50 States and Canada. In 2011, she released her fan-funded double album Something Fierce. Marian successfully Kickstarted a European tour and live album, Marian Call: Live in Europe, released in March 2013. After the live album she continued touring internationally and releasing original songs (Sketchbook, Yippee Ki Yay) and covers (Marian Call Sings the Classics, vol. I and vol. II) at a rapid clip.

Marian was born into a family of musicians in Gig Harbor, WA. She was raised on a steady diet of Bach, Beethoven, Joni Mitchell, Gilbert & Sullivan, and They Might Be Giants. For over twenty years she studied music and performed with chamber choirs, jazz combos, early music ensembles, rock bands, gospel choirs, and experimental music groups; all of these influences (and more) meet and mingle in her own writing. She completed her 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, learning from the indie songwriting scene that blossomed worldwide with the advent of the internet.
Marian Call continues to write and record in Alaska and around the country. She loves connecting with fans everywhere, as well as friendly musicians, writers, and artists from all backgrounds. You can probably catch her checking Twitter right now when she should be working.
