Marian Call is a nerd extraordinaire living in Anchorage, Alaska, and touring the country as a singer-songwriter. She has been singing in public since age three, and since that time she has performed music in nearly every genre -- classical art song, musicals, gospel, pop, country, rock, folk, jazz, and all kinds of choral music. She writes songs that appeal to all audiences, but nearly always encodes a deeper, encrypted layer of meaning for fannish friends who know what to listen for. Though new on the scene, she now plays for Browncoat and BSG events around the country. Her new album "Got to Fly" was commissioned by Quantum Mechanix, Inc., and consists entirely of songs about Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, and a life of fandom.
