One of the reasons that I chose to make a solo record was that I was ready to take a different approach to songwriting than I had used previously with Azure Ray. After traveling extensively in India, Cambodia and Haiti, I began to focus more on the external world instead of the internal. I was drawn to issues like spirituality, oppression, and the mystical and interminable spirit that underlies the human condition. The challenge that I faced was representing these issues with songs. This collection of songs is my attempt at that. It is an expression of my personal experiences, revelations, and observations. - Orenda Fink

Invisible Ones, Orenda Fink's debut solo album, relates a human journey from inward to outward, crossing boundaries of self and culture to find reconciliation with guilt, betrayal, tragedy, and regret. Orenda weaves empathetic tales of struggle with compositions that by turns haunt and offer clarity. Invisible Ones is haunted by ghosts from the earth’s four corners. It is troubled but ultimately optimistic. It is enigmatic and soulful. It is best heard with eyes closed.

“Leave It All” lures us in with its heartrending open-airiness; “Bloodline” feels like flying. On “Les Invisibles,” a resplendent chorus of Haitian voices reach to the sky in cries of transcendence. The album closes with “Animal,” a song in which surging, dirge-like percussion drives to an escalating frenzy that symbolizes the vodou cycle of life.

Also known as one half of Georgia’s Azure Ray, Orenda emerges on her first solo release as a new musical treasure. She’s inspired, bold, perceptive and real, and Invisible Ones soars with unassuming brilliance.

Engineered by Andy LeMaster (Now It's Overhead) and co-produced by Andy LeMaster and Orenda Fink. Featuring appearances by Todd Fink (The Faint), Scott Amendola, Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio), Martin Perna (Antibalas), Dan McCarthy (Mayday and McCarthy Trenching), Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes, The Faint, Rilo Kiley), Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers), and Rozna Zila and Sandy M. Saint-Cyr (Troupe Macandal).
