About Audrey Auld Mezera
Audrey Auld Mezera is an Australian singer/songwriter in the Americ-kinda style. “Music with the dirt left on” is how she describes her music. “Closer to being organic, than something that’s been manufactured.” Whether humorous or poignant, Audreys songs carry the ring of truth.
The Chris Austin Song Contest winner (MerleFest 2006) and two-time ARIA nominee has a healthy balance of respect and irreverence for the traditions. Audrey is an engaging entertainer who writes and performs with passion, humor and insight. Her love of contemporary roots music is evident, as are the influences of traditional country music.
She writes and sings songs with a worldly truth… She not only sounds like she grew up on Music Row in Nashville, but she writes the kinds of songs that built Music Row in the first place. ~ Gabe Meline, North Bay Bohemian
After marrying and relocating to California in ’03 it was only a matter of time before she crossed paths with one of the greatest accompanists in the world, Nina Gerber. The magic created by the two was evident from the start and after hearing the recording of their second show together they realized they had something special. In The House (2006) a live double CD is the result.
In The House is a document of pure fluidity. Second to Mezeras songwriting is her expressionistic phrasing, something that Lucinda Williams and Patty Griffin share. When she sings that youd leave me stra-a-nded it feels as if her entire body were supported by tiny twigs, each slowly starting to crack. When this delicacy is augmented by Gerbers sprawling atmosphere of arpeggios, absolute chemistry is at play. ~ Gabe Meline, North Bay Bohemian
“Audrey Auld is a great singer songwriter. She holds a unique place in contemporary Americana/Roots music. I believe that this uniqueness is largely due to the fact that she is Australian. This affords her a totally different attitude as an artist than traditional American contributors to this genre. Audrey is one of the most honest original artists I know.” ~ Fred Eaglesmith
The beauty of Audrey’s work is that she understands the power of simplicity. Whether it be in a traditional country setting or on the more edgy tracks her voice stays honest and true.” ~ Kieran Kane
Audrey tours regularly & has shared the stage with Buddy Miller, Kim Ritchie, Jim Lauderdale, Fred Eaglesmith, Bill & Kasey Chambers, Tom Russell and Charlie Louvin, opened for Keb Mo, Junior Brown, Paul Kelly, Vic Chesnutt, Chris Hillman/Herb Pederson, recorded with Nina Gerber, Kimmie Rhodes, Carrie Rodriguez, Fred Eaglesmith, Kieran Kane, Mary Gauthier and Dale Watson.
In 1997 Audrey, along with Bill Chambers (Kasey Chambers’ father) established Reckless Records in Australia. Apart from their own albums, Reckless has released albums from Sam Baker, Fred Eaglesmith, Mary Gauthier, The Lees and The Yearlings.
Audrey hails from Tasmania, Australia but is now based in Northern California and is learning to speak American.
Audrey Auld is one of my favourite Songwriters. Not only does she have a way of telling it straight with passion, shes totally fearless. She reminds me of Steve Earl. Scary! Audreys the real deal. ~ Bill Chambers, Producer/Artist
