Biography

Athens, Georgia (2001 – 2004, 2009 – present)

Azure Ray is an American indie duo, consisting of musicians Maria Taylor and Orenda Fink. Azure Ray started in Athens, Georgia, in 2001 and later relocated to Omaha, Nebraska and joined the music scene there, leading to collaborations with Bright Eyes and Now It’s Overhead, among others. Their sound is sparse and understated, with intimate lyrics, elements of alt-country and folk Americana, and occasional forays into minimalist electronica.

Azure Ray disbanded in 2004 and Maria and Orenda have released solo albums on Saddle Creek Records.

Azure Ray reunited in 2009 after a hiatus of more than five years and began touring again with other Saddle Creek artists as supporting members, notably Andy LeMaster of Now It’s Overhead.

The duo released their new full-length album “Drawing Down the Moon” in the fall of 2010.

    I only knew Displaced until a few days ago, and I absolutely loved it. Then I decided to download the entire discography, and oh what have I gotten? Total Azure Ray addiction. Across the Ocean, No Signs Of Pain, November, These White Lights Will Bend To Make Blue, Rise... wow! I feel like I'm in a whole new universe.

    I think "Drawing Down The Moon" was the record of this summer. Many memories, it's just a great album for summer nights.

    They are amazing, I 've been listening to them for years, but not every day you know ? It's like I only listen to them when I need to. They are always calming me down and cheering my up. I really hope to see them in Paris one day. They are amazing.
