GONZO WEEKLY #194: Jon meets Liz Lenten

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 the UK and played many live radio sessions. 

The debut Album DREAMS was released in 2003 and AUBURN toured with SOPHIE ELLIS BEXTOR in the UK and EUROPE, playing to 40,000 people. In 2005 CRY reached no 5 in the indie video charts after which they took a break and Liz concentrated on parenthood! 

Since then Liz has continued to work as a vocal coach, artist manager, record label, songwriter and choral director. She was 'SING UP' (governments' national singing campaign) lead facilitator/vocal advisor for Lincolnshire; has conducted the London Mozart Players Orchestra with the South Holland Choirs; written for and directed a 1000 voice kids choir for 'Sing 66' and manages several artists including award-winning folk artist ELIZA CARTHY and New Yorker GALIA ARAD.

She has just released the third of her records to be made in Nashville with legendary producer Thom Jutz, and I truly think that it may be her best yet.

I am very fond of Liz, and never need much of an excuse to talk to her, and so, when I heard that all sorts of things had been happening on Planet Liz, I phoned her up...
