Ziemba lost her father nearly two years ago. It was during the holiday season when her father fell in, an experience that ultimately fueled her new holiday-themed new LP, Unsubtle Magic. “Set in Ice” is the lone outlier, actually a song her father wrote back in the ‘70s. Ziemba’s vocals twist the words like twine, rustic and crunchy. “Living by myself for so very long / Get up every morning just to sing these songs,” she reflects.
