(Glass Onyon) Americana ensemble Auburn featuring Liz Lenten will release "Favourite Mistake EP" on April 28, 2023. After lockdown, desperate to reconnect with music, singer/songwriter Liz Lenten spent a year with the TSA (The Songwriting Academy) writing at home, in her Lincolnshire countryside studio, and after a few song assignments (from the brilliant mentors), set to challenge her, she ended up with a whole bunch of new songs....recording initially at home, then adding instruments and musicians via cyberspace in London, Wales, Sussex and even Australia - until sending everything to Nashville to award-winning long-time collaborator and producer, Thomm Jutz, to finish off recording and mix.
The first 4 completed tracks make up the digital "Favourite Mistake EP", which will be released on April 28th. A further 4 track digital EP will be released in September 2023, and a vinyl, with both EPs + 4 extra new songs, will be out at end of the year.
As always, the lyrical themes cover a myriad of emotions - Love, Resignation, Betrayal, Metamorphosis, Yearning...amongst others!
With wonderful contributions from Thomm Jutz (guitars), Mo Pleasure (bass), JB Bennetts (drums), Ruth Elder & London String Group (cello/violin), Eden Parish & Ivan Toolit (harmonies), Will Fowler (piano), and featuring Nottingham-based rapper - Sanka GBM.
".... it's Indie-Americana / singer-songwriter....so many different, but well-blended ingredients - it's beautiful - and very Auburn.......perfect for a road trip playlist!!" - Pat Garvey/CILC
The second digital EP will be released in the Autumn, and finally a vinyl, with both EP's + extra new recordings, to be released in time for Christmas.
