It’s been an incredible few months for Liv Austen. At the end of last year she released her debut album ‘A Moment of Your Time’ and has been busy on the road, most notably when supporting the wonderful Sarah Darling on her UK tour (Liv has also headlined two Belles and Gals gigs in that time too, which were both incredibly special!).
The release of the album has seen Liv move to another level and has a fan base which seems to grow with every performance – there are not too many UK country gigs where most of the audience know every word!
In a fantastic move, it has been announced today that Liv will release a double A-side single on May 19th, featuring ‘Detour’ and ‘Whole Heart’. Both songs were placed together on the album and now they work, almost as a team, on this double A-side release. The release will be on limited edition 7″ vinyl!
Liv Austen: ““Detour and Whole Heart are very special songs to me because they came completely from a place of raw honesty – my mask is totally off in both of them. It’s fascinating to me how vulnerability and strength go hand in hand as much as they do; when I opened up and wrote about something so personal and painful, I felt more empowered than ever!”
Previous single releases include ‘Window Shopping’, ‘The Next Time’ and ‘Don’t Regret a Single One’ and there is little doubt that this new release will be another winner.
About Liv Austen:
The Norwegian-born singer-songwriter arrived in the UK in 2010 to study acting. However, Liv’s greatest love – music – took her on a slightly different path. After her first EP release, and performances around the UK (including a set in front of a packed 800-capacity venue in the early days of C2C), she quickly found herself as one of the hottest properties in the ever-expanding British country music scene. She has become a key part of that explosion, but also has the pop sensibility to cross over to the widest possible audience.
Liv Austen is an artist who came to London for the drama but stayed for the music. To say that she made the right decision is turning into quite an understatement.
