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. Read more on Last.fm
See the following statement from Maria and Orenda on the postponement of their upcoming China shows:
“We regretfully announce that our China tour has to be postponed due to unpredictable schedule conflicts. We appreciate all those who worked to make it possible and our Chinese fans. New dates will be announced soon! For those who already bought tickets, please contact the ticket agency for refunds."
