Maria Taylor follows the release of her 2016 record In The Next Life, co-produced alongside Nik Freitas (Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band), which features guest vocals from Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), Joshua Radin, Jake Bellows (Neva Dinova), and others. After putting out four albums and three EPs as one half of Azure Ray (with co-vocalist Orenda Fink) and lending her voice, piano and drumming skills on numerous Bright Eyes records, Maria announced her solo career in 2005 - a change that would pave the way for five critically acclaimed albums and collaborations with renowned artists such as Jim Eno (Spoon),
Michael Stipe (R.E.M.), Moby, Doug Easley(Cat Power, Pavement), David Barbe (Sugar, Drive-By Truckers, Son Volt) and Crooked Fingers. As a performer, Maria has shared the stage with Ben Lee, Josh Rouse, Jason Isbell, Jim James and more. Over the years, fans have heard her music on TV shows such as This is Us, Grey's Anatomy, Parenthood and more. Maria's impressive resume runs long with critically adored music and collaborations, and on her latest recording she adds to the list with a work that catalogues the experiences, both unique and routine, in a life of music, love, achievement, loss, and lessons learned. So often
our most important touchstones are simultaneously beautiful and painful, and this record reflects a life lived by someone conscious of the multitudes in herself and everyone around her.
