18 September 1975 (age 45)
Orenda Fink (born September 18, 1975 in Birmingham, Alabama) is a musician, composer and singer closely associated with the Saddle Creek label, and probably best known as half of Azure Ray with Maria Taylor. She is also a former member of Now It's Overhead.
She released her full first full-length solo album, Invisible Ones, on August 23rd, 2005. A rockier affair than the measured etheriality of Azure Ray, or Maria Taylor's first solo album, it yielded the single Bloodline which bears a passing resemblance to Belly.
In 2009 Orenda released her second solo album, the acoustic Ask The Night. In places the album echoes some of Azure Ray's starker pieces, such as Raining in Athens, foregrounding Fink's distinctive banjo playing and invoking the traditional soundscape of the American South.
Orenda is married to Todd Fink (formerly Todd Baechle) of The Faint, another Saddle Creek band.
