A sweeping rock album written by Marian over several years and produced by Bryan Ray in Austin, TX. Based on the Medieval/Renaissance devotional Book of Hours, each bold and lyrical song marks the time of day and the ages of man. Click to play:
Marian’s bootleg album recorded on the road. These are not polished studio tracks, they are simple, imperfect, & transparent. The CD packaging is hand-stamped recycled cardboard. The songs are about time, lightning, birds, books, and hope. Click to play:
Marian tackles life, love, astronomy, spaceships, and beer in her double-album masterpiece. The songs range from silly to heartwrenching, the arrangements are rich and inventive, and the 16-page liner notes with lyrics are worth sinking into. Click to play:
A Kickstarted European tour allowed Marian to capture a few magical evenings in pubs for posterity. This collection of songs from Got to Fly, Vanilla, & Something Fierce features guitarist Scott Barkan and Marian’s new typewriter Neil (named for Neil Armstrong).
In 2008 Quantum Mechanix, purveyors of artisan geekstuff, commissioned Got to Fly. Marian delivered songs dedicated to Firefly/Serenity and Battlestar Galactica that continue to inspire fandom today. Just rereleased on CD!
Bootlegs, basement recordings, and other fun singles from Marian’s one-year-long songwriting project. The tunes range from punk to jazz to an original choral composition. A fan favorite is “We’re Out for Blood,” the theme song to the film Zombie Cheerleading Camp.
