ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, February 7, 2024 / — Auburn has been captivating audiences around the world with their unique blend of Americana, blues and roots music. With varied reviewers’ comparisons from Bonnie Raitt and Macy Gray to Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits, their songs grab you melodically and tell stories of life’s ups and downs.

The band have recorded their last 4 albums in Nashville, Tennessee, with award- winning, Grammy-nominated producer Thomm Jutz, gaining airplay worldwide, and touring extensively, as special guests with Sophie Ellis Bexter, Jefferson Starship and Martin Carthy amongst others, as well as many headline shows.

Their brand-new single “Don’t Give Up: was recorded between Nashville and Malvern Hills, UK. Produced and recorded by Thomm Jutz, Liz Lenten also worked with seasoned vocal producer/hit songwriter Martin Sutton on the vocals.

Says Liz, “‘Don’t Give Up’ is all about how difficult life can get, particularly in today’s crazy times… and offering support and hope, to get through your troubles. Sometimes, we all need a helping hand; to know we’re not alone, and to be told ‘you’re enough – you got this!’”

“Intimate kind of retro styled blues” – Music Street Journal (USA)

“Auburn makes wonderfully atmospheric music…like the kind of country that first turned rappers on to Johnny Cash because he was such an OG” – Midwest Records (USA)
