Liz Lenten formed AUBURN in the summer of 1999. Their first gig was at the jam-packed launch party of Scarlet Records held at the salubrious and smoky Madame JoJo’s in Soho to a completely packed and enthusiastic house.
Their first EP ‘Sweet Sebastian’ received extensive airplay, and sold out of its limited pressing within 2 weeks. They then teamed up with producer Tim Pettit, (Travis, Sun House and Carlene Carter) and recorded ‘For Life’, which also got great radio support and the band toured UK and played many live radio sessions.
The debut Album DREAMS was released in 2003 and AUBURN toured with SOPHIE ELLIS BEXTOR in UK and EUROPE, playing to 40,000 people. In 2005 CRY reach no 5 in the indie video charts after which they took a break concentrated on parenthood!
Auburn reunited in 2011 to create one of the break-out releases of 2012, ‘Indian Summer’, which garnered rave reviews worldwide.
‘Indian Summer’ is a mix of up-beat and slower tempo electro-acoustic pop music, but borrowing much from the roots, country and blues genres; definitely 2013 – but with a slightly retro sound, that has its listeners reminiscing. It is a mixed sound of lush acoustic guitars, rich cello lines and groovy percussion, underpinned by hypnotic bass lines, with guest performances by ELIZA CARTHY and LAURA VANE.
