'Losing Faith' Winner of the MerleFest Chris Austin Song Contest 2006 Country Category. "The beauty of Audrey's work is that she understands the power of simplicity. Whether it be in a traditional country setting or on the more edgy tracks her voice stays honest and true.' ~ Kieran Kane 'Losing Faith' is a stunning follow-up to Audrey Auld's ARIA nominated debut release 'The Fallen' - a debut which earned her international acclaim. Featuring duets with three of the biggest names in alternative country - Fred Eaglesmith, Mary Gauthier and Kieran Kane and collaborative contributions from some of Australia's and the USA's best musicians - Bill and Kasey Chambers, Michael Carpenter, Scrappy Jud Newcomb, Spenser Campbell, Camille Te Nahu, Gerry Hale, Mick Albeck, & Dave Steel. Audrey's been to the depths of a broken heart and returns with one hell of a tale to tell. This is no jagged little pill, this is life administered intravenously. 'Losing Faith' re-invents hillbilly rock, setting it with moments of acoustic sweetness, of innocence lost or regained. 13 tracks: novocaine candy for your old aches, and an oxy torch for the new. Auld takes musical and emotional fragments to forge a new whole, charming the Phoenix from the ashes. These are adult emotions, not Nashville sentimentality. You can't help thinking: maybe she hasn't lost faith after all. Just redefined it. Whether singing with Buddy Miller, or opening for Keb Mo, Paul Kelly, Lee Kernaghan or Kevin Welch, or taking the stage with Jim Lauderdale, Fred Eaglesmith, Kim Ritchie and Jason McCoy in the International Singer Songwriters Series, it is Audrey Auld herself that demands your attention as the stand-alone singer/songwriter. From Nashville's legendary Bluebird Cafe, to Billy Block's Western Beat, to appearing in Billboard - Auld's art is in the moving on, leaving the dobro to do the crying. With the power of alt. Rock and the pure integrity of roots music, 'Losing Faith' walks hallowed ground. It takes a traditional understanding to make Auld's 21st Century meld. CMAA nominations for 2001's Female Vocal and Best New Talent recognised Auld's capacity for innovation within tradition. Her success as a solo artist follows a 2000 CMAA nomination for Best Vocal Duo, for her work with Bill Chambers as Bill & Audrey.
