Auburn’s ‘Nashville’ to be released January 27th on Scarlet Records with tour dates supporting Jefferson Starship

Understated and more often than not charming Liz Lenten’s pop styled folk has a beautiful and on occasions a quirky feel” (Flying Shoe)

Fronted by a tremendous vocalist in Liz Lenten, whose influence bears hallmarks of some of the great dreampop singers, but with more singer songwriter approach, the group create mature heartfelt melodies for a new generation” (Morning Star Online)

Well-woven tales with gorgeous melodies – it’s a fine album’ (Ectophiles guide to good music)

One of the break-out releases of 2012, UK acoustic ensemble Auburn's Indian Summer gathered rave reviews worldwide. Featuring singer/songwriter Liz Lenten, Auburn reunited in 2011 after an almost 10-year break while the band members focused on personal projects.

Following live dates in 2012, including The Blue Nile Club in New Orleans, and a 10-date UK tour with legendary psychedelic band JEFFERSON STARSHIP, Liz went back into the studio to write new material. In June 2013 she took her new songs to Nashville TN, to record with award-winning producer THOMM JUTZ, and a collection of Grammy-winning musicians.

Thomm said: ‘Liz approached me about me about producing a record for her earlier this year. Our mutualfriend, master songwriter Gretchen Peters had suggested to Liz that working with me, here in Nashville might bea good idea. Liz and I had some great conversations on the phone and she sent me her songs. I immediately loved the material and the singing - I knew I had to think outside of the box for this project, and that's always a good thing.All the players loved working on this project. They understood that playing freely without stylistic constraints was the order of the day here. Everybody approached these songs with an open mind, especially, Liz - and that isone of the greatest qualities an artist/writer can have. It was a joy to make this record, from beginning to end. It was a creative adventure for all of us and that's when making music is at its most magical.’

Entitled ‘Nashville’, the resulting album’s sonic world showcases Liz’s many and varied musical passions including elements of southern blues, country and jazz, and with influences ranging from Billie Holiday to Bonnie Raitt and Ricki Lee Jones. Choral-director and artist/label manager (Eliza Carthy, Shane Macgowan & Galia Arad) Liz, whose voice has been described as “so sweet it'll make your hair curl” and “husky, with an emotional frailty”, isn't afraid to show her full range of vocal tones or emotions. Her vocals on this album have already been likened to those of Karen Dalton, Dusty Springfield and Norah Jones.

Selected tracks from the album were made available pre-release on ReverbNation, and within a few weeks had reached No.1 in the UK Americana charts and No.7 in Global Americana charts with over 45,000 songplays!

Auburn were delighted to be asked once again to support Jefferson Starship on their forthcoming tour (see dates below).
