Singer/Songwriter Audrey Auld will bring her humorous, provocative and soulful songs to the Norman Depot, 200 South Jones Avenue on Sunday, March 6. Tickets for this 7:00 pm Winter Wind Concert are $15 and available at The Performing Arts Studio in the Depot, or online from TicketStorm by clicking the "Buy Now" button below.
Auld came to the U.S. from Tasmania, Australia, where her debut CD was released in 1999 to award winning acclaim. Looking Back to See, a duet album with singer/songwriter and guitar great Bill Chambers, laid a foundation for Auld's next seven releases including The Fallen in 2000 which was nominated for Best Country Album in Australia.
Losing Faith was released in 2003, a dark haunting release that put Audrey on the map in the U.S. with Americana radio, and of which Eliza Gilkyson said “I just finished listening to Losing Faith and it leveled me... Even after only one listen -- I’m hooked.” Audrey won the 2006 MerleFest Song Contest with Losing Faith.
She began touring the states, opening shows for Todd Snider, Kevin Welch and Fred Eaglesmith, among others. Eaglesmith said "Audrey Auld is a great singer/songwriter. She holds a unique place in contemporary Americana/Roots music... Audrey is one of the most honest original artists I know."
By 2004 Audrey had married and was living in Stinson Beach just north of San Francisco. She quickly became a favorite on local stations including KPIG, playing frequently for Sleepy John's local shows and touring the region. "I have hosted over 700 live music shows on KPIG radio and if asked to give the top 10 performers Audrey Auld would be on that list” Sleepy John says. “She has a great voice and writes serious songs and humorous songs that make you think and laugh, but the best part is that she is a great entertainer."
In the House, a stunning live release in 2006, was followed by Lost Men & Angry Girls which went to number one on the Freeform American chart in 2007.
Now living in East Nashville with her husband, dogs and chickens, Auld is writing songs and touring. Her Winter Wind Concert promises to make you laugh, (she is also a spontaneous comedienne) to move your heart and to get you thinking.
The Performing Arts Studio Gallery and office in the Depot are open from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm Monday through Friday. Phone 405-307-9320 for additional information about PAS programs. For additional information about Audrey Auld visit http://www.audreyauld.com/.
