As with Auburn’s previous releases, the band’s new album, Love & Promises, was recorded in Nashville.

Liz Lenten says: “Nashville is one of the most wonderful cities on earth to me. It is buzzing with music and creativity.

“My fantastic producer, Thomm Jutz, who totally brings my ideas to life, is there, so I would go wherever he was. And the musicians are amazing – all so incredibly talented and sensitive, and just lovely people to be around.

“I have done three albums there and will be going back next year, hopefully, to record a duo album with Chet O’Keefe. I just feel at home there.”

Chet O’Keefe, who is performing the Cross the Deep Atlantic tour with Liz, also has a new CD out, called Because of You.

All bar one of the tracks on Auburn’s new album were written by Liz, who performs vocals on the CD.

Love & Promises will be released on Liz’s own label, Scarlet Records, which has also released albums by Galia Arad and Shane MacGowan as well as Eliza Carthy and Norma Waterson.

Liz also runs Scarlet Music Services, a long established music education and recording business.
