Marian and her fans have reached a new milestone — her Kickstarter in August 2015 raised $67,035 to make it the fourth highest funding Kickstarter in the state of Alaska.
The funds are for Marian’s next studio album, Standing Stones, due to be released in 2016. But fans also helped to fund the creation of new original songs, music videos, custom vinyl, an acoustic EP, and an EP of jazz standards and covers, all now in the pipeline.
