Auburn - Produced by Max Gilkes (Lily Allen, Prince Fatty, Manu Chau)
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 UK and played many live radio sessions.
The debut Album DREAMS was released in 2003 and AUBURN toured with
SOPHIE ELLIS BEXTOR in UK and EUROPE, playing to 40,000 people. In 2005 CRY reach no 5 in the indie video charts after which they took a break 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.
Now, with Producer Max Gilkes, she has written and recorded a brand new album, INDIAN SUMMER, featuring special guests including ELIZA CARTHY & LAURA VANE and is looking forward to resurrecting AUBURN in 2012.
