The Azure Vault Los Angeles, California

Six years in the making, The Azure Vault comes out of the gate with an ethereal, contemplative, and expressive EP that finds a balance between a 140 year-old story and a visually motivated musical expression.

Tim Cooper (Signal Hill) and Steve Molter (Beware of Safety) man multiple instruments to drive the compelling and pensive sounds inspired by the story.
