Reviews: It's hard, if not impossible, to avoid the early Neko Case comparisons. There's a kind of sullen country vibe-maybe 'country gothic,' in the literary sense of that loaded second word - that resembles Seattle's favorite red-headed export. Marvel doesn't have Case's over-the-top pipes, but she's better at atmospherics: Her songs are tiny, sad stories, beautifully told with an aching heart. If you can listen to Marvel and not get that genuinely sad, old-school country-music hurt in your gut, there's something wrong with you. - Paul Constant, The Stranger Zera Marvel has finished her first solo album titled, 'Birds & Bullets Fly'. The recording features her enchanting, sometimes low timbered, dusky voice audiences have come to love so much from her Tagging Satellite days. - Radio Free Seattle Zera has just finished recording a full length album. She sings low and serenely. The compositions are dark and long. There are gothic turns in her stoic stance and she shades country into night. - Trent Mooreman, The Stranger Dark And Dreamy Singer/Songwriter- Why we love her: Her acoustic country is perfect back porch listening. - Seattle Magazine "Then there's Marvel's voice, elusive as Hope Sandoval's but possessing some of Kendra Smith's wearied mystique." ~ The Oregonian Bio: I moved around quite a bit growing up. I call Newport, Rhode Island 'home' because I lived there consistently for the longest amount of time. I bought my first guitar when I was seventeen. I was inspired by local bands like Throwing Muses and Belly. In 1997 I wound up in Charleston, South Carolina - where I met Graig Markel, who was in town on tour with his band. Our love affair began where all great romances start...in a bar. Soon after, I took a Greyhound bus to Seattle so we could be together. We formed a band, Tagging Satellites. Over the next six years Tagging Satellites released two EPs and three full-length albums. We had a few line up changes but Graig and I remained the consistent thread that held the band together...until we couldn't. It nearly cost us our relationship but instead of becoming another rock and roll casualty, we broke up the band and got married. Graig started a new project called, The Animals At Night, and I started recording some of my own songs. Lately I have been playing live with a five piece band including: Jon Hyde (pedal steel), Greg Panto (banjo), Doran Bastin (bass) and Joe Patterson (drums). Along with Graig recording and producing my first solo album at The Recovery Room here in Seattle, he also joins me on stage playing guitar. 'Birds And Bullets Fly' is my first solo release. I hope you enjoy the songs.
