Australian-born country gal, Audrey Auld now living in East Nashville has made good use of her six years there. She has consistently impressed with her authentic brand of traditional country music. I stood in the studio with this great band and knew that I had lived my whole life to get to this point. It was so much fun and such an honour to play with these great guys, the way country music should be recorded summarised Auld on completion of the 14 track album two days after first stepping into the studio. There are also another two songs available from the session on 7-inch vinyl and download.

Tonk starts off bright ‘n breezy as she brings flavours of the past. As in Loretta Lynn, Carter Family …etc. So honest and pure  is her music she could be of family stock such is her brand of country music augmented with hues of today. And with a list near as long as your arm quality acts in Kenny Vaughan, Paul Martin and Harry Stinson of Marty Stuart’s band The Fabulous Superlatives, Chris Scruggs, Andy Leftwich (Ricky Skaggs), George Bradfute and Gary Carter, (Connie Smith) Auld and co-producers Vaughan and Bradfute deliver top-class goods. Auld’s songs have not only graced, Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry but made it onto TV shows Justified, The Good Guys and Longmire and there is more credits too.


Though Auld has an uncanny knack of doing traditional country justice she also has the ability to veer over to Americana and nail a tune or two, and while not all selections blow my socks off she does enough on the likes of “Your Wife” and a mandolin lined “Siren Song” and quirky ‘Aussie’ slang piece “Rack Off” (as the players lend it something of a Johnny Cash Sun records sound, and even a hint of his hit with June Carter Cash, “Jackson”) plus as a tribute to past greats of country music “Lonely Town” to offset any variances. Like with the steady and less than ground shaking “Sweet Alcohol” (Terry McArthur) she reminds me a little of the ever improving Laura Cantrell. An act who too has been made to serve her dues and has through great determination made it over the hump, and with pickers like those featured Auld has the likes of her songs “Nashville #1” and “Nashville #2” presented in the next best possible light, as we have seen her develop on more than one front. For she is a wonderful songwriter and better than some of those enjoying hits every other week on the Billboard charts.
