Maria Taylor brought along a band of characters that included her brother Macey and Taylor Hollingsworth (both of Taylor Hollingsworth & The Spider Eaters, a fantastically punk inspired rock outfit from Alabama whose stint opening for The Detroit Cobras recently blew me away).
Strange as it was to see the dynamic pair playing dreamy pop music and seemingly in slow motion compared to whirlwind I had witnessed prior, it was a great addition to Taylor’s soft Tanya-Donnelly-meets-Sarah-Mc Lachlan vocal performance.
I mean, why wait around, if it's just to surrender? An ambition, I've found, can lead only to failure.

Craig Ferguson: See, I love your work, and I'm reading that they're saying you're the new Bob Dylan, how does that stuff kinda get you? As one half of dreamy indie-pop duo Azure Ray, Maria Taylor caught the attention of everyone from the average coffee shop worker to Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst.Now on the road supporting her second solo effort (Lynn Teeter Flower), the pretty and petite songwriter has a built-in audience who came out in strong numbers for a mid-week show at The Social.
