Marian Call:  Something Fierce

Marian Call: Something Fierce

  • $ 1595

'Something Fierce' is a fan-funded album by Anchorage artist Marian Call. It's a double album; volume I is called 'Good Luck With That' and volume II is called 'From Alaska.'

The music is a little silly but mostly very sincere and honest, mostly acoustic, occasionally symphonic, eclectic, rhythmic and warm with a side of whimsy. Marian approximates the sweeter, wilder improvisational vocals in her live shows more on this record than on any to date.

Marian really really really hopes you like it, or at least some of it.
