Maria Taylor

Azure Ray, the duo of Maria Taylor and Orenda Fink, formed in Athens, Georgia in 2001. Soon afterward, they relocated to Omaha and joined in with the whole Saddle Creek scene when it was at its apex. Taylor and Fink worked with Saddle Creek artists like Bright Eyes, Cursive, and the Faint, and they also released three of their own albums of dreamy, folky indie. Azure Ray have gone on hiatus and reunited a few times over the years, and Taylor and Fink have both released solo records and collaborated with other artists. Today, Azure Ray have announced that they’ll soon release a new album, their first over a decade.
