Interview Questions: Azure Ray

Posted by - 09:12 AM on 08/20/10
I have an interview lined up with none other than Azure Ray, who are back this year with a new album titled Drawing Down the Moon that comes out in September. The band took a hiatus for a few years as Maria Taylor and Orenda Fink worked on solo projects, so if you are a fan, you probably have a lot of questions for them regarding the hiatus, this new album and much more. Simply leave the questions in the replies and I will try my best to include them in the interview.

haha I would, too.

Q: How have each of your writing processes evolved since the last time the two of you worked together on an album, since you've both released multiple solo records and worked on various other projects since the last time? Was it easier/harder?

Q: How do you feel about this new batch of songs compared with your older material?

Q: What brought you two to finally making another album together after a relatively lengthy hiatus?

Q: Can we expect any interesting guest artists on the new record aside from the regular Saddle Creek contributors?

Q: How long can we expect this reunion to last before you each go back to your respective separate projects? Is this a one-album-and-we're-done-for-another-few-years deal, or are you planning to keep this going for a while?

All pretty basic interview questions, obviously. If/when I think of more, I'll post them. I'm super excited for this.

Oh this is awesome; I've met the two ladies separately but I can't imagine how awesome it would be to chat to them both together.

Did getting back together feel like a natural progression in your musical careers? How did it feel to be making music together again?

Are there any international reunion touring plans?

I also second the 'will there be another album after Drawing Down The Moon' question.

Any chance of finally revealing the Azure Ray song whose misinterpretation inspired Maria Taylor's Song Beneath the Song (see Interview, http://www.undertheradarmag.com/inte...view_052005/)? I figure the chance is remote, but why not try?
