Maria Taylor - Something About Knowing

Maria Taylor’s solo album, Something About Knowing, is available on CD, LP, and Digital.

You can download the track, “This Is It,” at Rolling Stone. Maria talked with the Examiner about the joys of and being a first-time parent working with friends on her record.

Orenda & Maria collaborate with director Tom Gilroy

The Cold Lands

Orenda and Maria collaborated with the director Tom Gilroy in conjunction with his film The Cold Lands. Produced by Todd Fink (The Faint), the girls wrote a short ambient score to the beautiful outtakes of the film. Here is some info about the project:

The Cold Lands Music Collaborations are seven short videos comprised of bonus footage from Tom Gilroy’s new feature film The Cold Lands and original music  by emerging and established musicians. This atmospheric collection explores the visual and thematic landscape of The Cold Lands, but consists of eclectic, stand-alone works. Rather  than  retell the film’s story, they reclaim imagery from it that would otherwise be forgotten. Gilroy gave each artist a distinct selection of footage and free reign to use it. Some composed a new score, and some edited their footage to an existing work.
