Marya Stark Interview & Remembering David Darling This Weekend on Echoes
Weekend listeners will hear Marya Stark, a singer-songwriter with a more celestial approach to lyrics. Last year she released the album, Sapphire, produced with Joshua Penman of Akara. You can hear influences from Loreena McKennitt to Sheila Chandra in her work which includes “Womb Healing” and her “mystical dark pop.”
This weekend we also remember cellist David Darling. He left the planet on January 8th. Born in Elkhart, Indiana on March 4, 1941, he was 79. We remember him as a great cellist and pioneer of ambient chamber music. His albums like Cello, Eight-String Religion and Prayer for Compassion remain timeless beauties. He was also a member of the classic edition of the Paul Winter Consort. We’ll listen back to his last interview and some tracks from across his career.
