Marian Call: Dear Mister Darcy
Her personal transformation after moving to Alaska, and her journeys to and from the Last Frontier, served as a primary inspiration for Something Fierce. Each song in the two-movement work is forged from personal experience and grounded in a powerful sense of geography. The stories range from Nome to New Orleans, and many were written and recorded during Call’s 2010 tour of all fifty United States and Canada. But after sweeping the length of the continent, in a whirlwind of rhymes, Marian Call’s voice always returns to a clear ringing melody and magnetic North.
