Devils are not the only thing to come from Tasmania. Singer-songwriter Audrey Auld’s heart is in Country/Folk music, with a presence as big as The Outback. Her songs are the wry and poignant observations of an Aussie troubadour touring the States since 2003. Audrey Auld’s latest release, recorded in Nashville 2013,Tonk is a breath of fresh country air, right out of a Saturday night honky tonk.
“Right from the outset, this latest release from the Nashville residing Aussie sets out to be a blueprint of how traditional country music can be made relevant in the 21st Century and Audrey succeeds in this mission.” ~ Three Chords and the Truth, UK
Ever the fearlessly independent woman, she runs her own label Reckless Records and enjoys great success as a songwriter. Auld’s songs are recorded by Nashville stars and Carter Family descendants, are heard on the Grand Ole Opry, TV shows (Justified, The Good Guys, Longmire) and within the walls of San Quentin Prison where she has hosted songwriting workshops since 2006.
“The only problem with Auld is trying to decide if she’s more remarkable as a singer or a songwriter, which isn’t the worst problem an artist can have.” ~ John Conquest, 3rd Coast Music, Austin, TX, April 2012
An honest and witty writer and a spontaneous comedienne, Auld is never afraid to venture into the dark places of life and shine a humorous light upon them. It’s in her live show that you’ll really meet her. She’s entertaining, funny, heartfelt and dry. You’ll laugh and cry. She’s wickedly witty with a country sound that harks back to the days of a tight frock and a promise. But don’t be fooled – she’s Australian after all….
Auld lives in East Nashville with her plumber husband, good dogs, wayward chickens and emancipated frogs.
“Audrey Auld’s voice and songwriting skills are talents to behold in a very shallow musical world.” ~ Alan Harrison, No Depression 2013
“Anyone doubting that Audrey Auld is one of the world’s best songwriters should give “Resurrection Moon” a listen.” ~ Paul Riley, Country Music People, UK, April 2012
