Henry, my sweetest friend.



I am happy to report that I’ve been writing some new solo material and hope to start recording in the spring or summer. My new band, Dead Ship Sailing, is also moving full steam ahead. We are in the studio working on a full-length record and are getting ready to play some shows. On December 14th we will be playing at Ella St. Social Club in Portland, Oregon. Stay tuned for an announcement about our first Seattle show…

Dead Ship Sailing

My acoustic guitar is gathering dust. My lack of enthusiasm regarding my solo music disappoints me greatly at times, but sometimes the songs just don’t come and it can be quite frustrating. I am happy to report that my electric guitar has recently been dusted off. My enthusiasm regarding “just not giving a fuck” inspires me greatly these days. Sometimes when you are alone in a room trying to write a song it can be easy to over-think everything, question if its good enough, write and re-write. With my new project with Graig Markel that just isn’t an option. Once a week for the past 13 weeks we’ve been going into the studio with a blank piece of paper, plugging in our guitars, and writing and recording a full song. We give ourselves one evening to complete each song. No time to over-think or question anything. Loud guitars, attitude, and simplicity. I couldn’t be happier with how it’s turning out. We’ve posted the first 10 songs we recorded on our website and they can be downloaded for free. We are currently writing a few more songs and then we will re-mix 10 songs and put out a record sometime in the near future. xo

City Arts Festival

While most Seattleites might know Zera Marvel from her onstage appearances with Head Like A Kite – she’s tough to miss – the singer also writes and performs her own material, dark, intimate and bare, yet somehow uplifting. A solo performance from Marvel is a rare one – the singer claims to suffer from stage fright – so… this, her first show in a year, should be a special treat. Show up and give her your support. -City Arts Magazine
