It takes a certain artist to not only draw you in with a song, but to keep you hanging onto every word. Aubryn, a singer/songwriter hailing from Nashville, TN, is known for her ability to do just that. Her quirky songs maintain a sharp wit, paired with catchy and often haunting melodies that tell surprising stories of multidimensional women. Aubryn’s versatile voice has often been described as “Badass Alison Krauss meets Susan Tedeschi.” Her sound has been described as “Wild West” meets “Old School New Orleans.” Sharing the stage with acts such as Love and Theft, she draws influence from the likes of powerhouses Joan Osborne and Bonnie Raitt. Aubryn is currently recording her debut album with producer and percussionist Pino Squillace, one of the original members of the “Music Mafia,” alongside Gretchen Wilson and Big and Rich. The album, which will be released on Friday, November 13, 2015, blends the genres of blues, folk, and americana, with cabaret influenced melodies.
Having graduated from Stephens College with a BFA in Theater Arts and a minor in music, Aubryn moved to Nashville to pursue a second Bachelors in Songwriting. Since then, she has established a strong local presence via her online show, and the two popular open mics she has hosted. Her first open mic endeavor, which started in 2012, was held on Monday nights at the National Underground; a venue on Broadway owned by Gavin DeGraw and his family. Last Spring, Aubryn hijacked the Monday night slot at the well-known 8th Street venue, Daisy Dukes, and moved her open mic there. It is still thriving today! The web show Aubryn’s Musiconversation, now almost in it’s third year, features a different musical guest every week. Loyal viewers have been known to tune in from as far west as San Diego, to as far east as the United Kingdom!
The unique talents of this songstress have not gone unnoticed nationally. Aubryn recently won 1st place at the San Diego County Fair Singer/Songwriter competition, and was a 2015 Kerrville Folk Festival finalist in the New Folk Competition. The prize for her first place win was recording time with Big West Music at Big Rock Studios!
Aubryn has always known that music was her passion and she has never strayed from her goals of making music professionally. She creates stories that are timeless and classic, yet relatable to the modern woman. Not to mention, her signature cloth headpieces, and modern yet vintage inspired attire makes it easy to spot her in a room! Touring often in the U.S., Aubryn frequents states such as North Carolina, California, Tennessee and Texas. Filling bars and venues across the states with her strong musical presence, Aubryn leaves a story behind everywhere she goes.
