MARIA TAYLOR ANNOUNCES TOUR DATES TO SUPPORT HER THIRD SOLO ALBUM

Critically acclaimed songstress Maria Taylor, who you may already know from Saddle Creek's Azure Ray, is gearing up to release her third solo album titled Ladyluck on March 31. Teaming up with producer friends Andy LeMaster , Mike Mogis and Lukas Burton and featuring collaborations with Michael Stipe, Nate Walcott of Bright Eyes and Mckenzie Smith of Midlake, LadyLuck showcases Taylor's ability to pull at your heart strings while proving shes not a woman down on her luck.

Already available on iTunes, "Time Lapse Lifeline" is about how fast life moves and how in a moment everything can change. Appropriately, the song is punctuated by both a driving beat and lingering, plaintive vocals. The video for "Time Lapse Lifeline" features Maria alongside friends from local bands Har Mar Superstar, Whispertown 2000, Tilly and the Wall, and The Donnas.


The album's second track, "Cartoons and Forever Plans" will be released on iTunes on March 17. As on previous albums, she works with Andy LeMaster as well as new contributor, REM's Michael Stipe.
