Blues-rock-folk outift The Audreys today launch the 2nd single from their acclaimed album ‘Til My Tears Roll Away’; the stompin’ little slice of sultry swagger ‘Baby, Are You There?’.  The band also adds regional tour dates to their broad ‘Til My Tears Roll Away National Tour, which rolls out across the country this June and July, kicking off Thursday June 5 in Canberra.

Watch the video for ‘Baby, Are You There?’ here:

Praise for ‘Til My Tears Roll Away’ has come in thick and fast:

“… an album of impressive depth and diversity… big minor chords, which combined with Shane O’Mara’s shaggy production and Tristan Goodall’s schizophrenic guitar (at one moment heartbroken, the next violent), support a record of abandon and grace.” Rolling Stone (4 star review)

“They exhibit a newfound swagger and muscle… It’s another winner.”STACK Magazine (4 star review)

“Guitars buzz and fizz, rhythms rumble, in arresting contrast to Taasha Coates ever temperate tones… it’s a triumphant evolution… leaving behind the ‘banjos and violins’ in favour of rock guitars.”Rhythms Magazine

“There is little on ‘Til My Tears Roll Away that passes for country and a couple of tunes that qualify as seriously sexy rock’n’roll… Pick of the bunch is the searing ‘Ballad For The Fallen’… (with) a vocal performance so good that it raises the hairs on my neck…”Courier Mail (4 star review)

“The Audreys, with Shane O’Mara producing, make a welcome return with a mighty sound palette on display. The first couple of tracks are straight from a purple paisley past with fuzztone guitars like big angry hornets buzzing in a whiskey jar. Then it’s acoustic and crying guitars for Keep Your Company. They go rock with big drums and heavy guitars for Ballad of the Fallen. There are actual ballads too, but it’s a large lively set generally. The constants are Tristan Goodall on guitars, and truly special singer Taasha Coates playing the damaged angel, flirting with boys and bars.” – The Age (4 star review)

“While still adhering to their country, roots and swing origins, they have muddied the sonic waters and injected some grit and grime... ‘My Darlin’ Girl’ is a long and slow bluesy number that rumbles with menacing intent as guitars swirl around Taasha Coates’ sultry yet gritty vocal” The Big Issue (4 star review)


Known for their graceful, impassioned live performances and ramshackle impromptu covers, as well as their playful banter and disarming charm, The Audreys are a live act second to none.
