Orenda Fink was once the voice of Azure Ray, among other projects — we loved that Art In Manila record, for example. These days, the critically-acclaimed singer and songwriter once based in Birmingham, Alabama, is a fixture Omaha, Nebraska, where her label, Saddle Creek, is based. Currently performing her own music under her own name — and it certainly stands on its own that way — Orenda is joined here and on tour by her husband, Todd Fink (of labelmates The Faint), for an intimate session in the backyard of the BTRhouse in Austin during SXSW.
Featured song: “Ace Of Cups”
Special thanks to Southern Tier Brewing Company for sponsoring the BTRhouse sessions.
