The year was 1986. The singer was only twenty-two, but since childhood she had been captivated by the worlds of wonder and imagination that she discovered in fantasy and science fiction.
Later, she would become a John W. Campbell award-winning writer of science fiction stories and novels, but for now she poured all her imagination and creativity into crafting songs that combined haunting beauty with a sweeping narrative style.
The result was Divine Intervention, an album that shattered the boundaries of science fiction and music with delicate orchestral and pulse-pounding rock settings of Julia Ecklar’s song-stories.
This remastered edition of Divine Intervention combines the original album tracks — polished and re-mastered under the supervision of producer Michael Moricz — plus fourteen minutes of new and previously unavailable tracks.
