From Dublin, Ireland, the dynamic duo of Carole Nelson and Maria Walsh, dubbed “Zrazy,” present music that will add a bright luster to your dramatizations in any media. The crystal clarity of a delicate bell informs Maria’s beautiful voice. "Captured in a Song” reminds us of the divine Jazz-Diva Shirley Horn. Maria also plays flute and percussion, while Carole is the team’s composer and piano/sax player. Performing together since 1993, Zrazy has won many awards: Best New Band in Hot Press Mag Awards and had a commissioned piece reach No. 1 in the Irish Pop Charts.
