12th Manchester @ The Phoenix
13th Glasgow @ Nice n Sleazy
14th Newcastle @ The Cumberland Arms


“...it’s songs such as the seductive opener A Good Start that a make Maria Taylor a name you should get to know.” The Sun 4/5

“Lynn Teeter Flower? blooming marvellous” Word

“A winning hybrid of indie neuroses and Brill Building craft, precision and intimacy...” Uncut

The first time Maria Taylor’s graceful voice was heard through our speakers, we knew it was love at first listen. On Azure Ray’s 2001 debut, she sang with a knowledge and a weariness that made us trust and believe her words, fragile tones fragmented through soft acoustic strumming and velvety textures. Skip forward four short years later to when Maria set off on her own for a while, resulting in the stunning solo album called 11:11. A critical smash that wrapped her now-familiar voice in everything from acoustic folk to electronic dream pop, the album established Maria as a master storyteller with a flare for perfect, harmony-soaked melodies.To follow up a stunning debut, Maria has put together another glimmering collection of songs in the shape of her second solo record, Lynn Teeter Flower.
