Just because you aren’t from around here doesn’t mean you can’t beat the locals at their own game—blue-eyed soul, anyone?—at least some of the time. As Jerry Lewis charming the French, any pop star who’s big in Japan, and the phenomena that is Rick Bayliss has taught us, provenance is only one part of the game. Hence, Audrey Auld is the Aussie with the voice of a Low Country angel.
Devils are not the only thing to come from Tasmania. Audrey Auld’s heart is in Country, Folk and Americana music with a presence as big as The Outback. Her songs are the wry and poignant observations of an Aussie girl living in California and then Nashville, since 2003. An honest and witty writer, Audrey is never afraid to venture into the dark places of life and shine a humorous light upon them. Her songs are heard on the Grand Ole Opry and Fox TV shows “Justified” and “The Good Guys”. Auld’s 2012 album Resurrection Moon is a retrospective collection of tracks taken from her 10 album catalogue. Wood is a 5-track acoustic tribute to Woody Guthrie. Auld lives in East Nashville with her husband, dogs, chickens and frogs, growing food, writing songs, recording and touring.
And to celebrate the centennial of the birth of a hero, Auld recorded a limited edition CD honoring Woody Guthrie. We can’t wait to give it a listen! And, boy look at that sticker. As the Okie from Okemah would have said, “this sticker was made for you and me.” Or something like that.
