Go to Soundcloud to listen to Audra Mae's "The Real Thing."
Since arriving in California seven years ago, with the proverbial $20 in her pocket, Audra Mae has done alright for herself. She landed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell, a TV placement singing Bob Dylan's "Forever Young" on the hit F/X series, Sons of Anarchy, and in 2009, she wrote the lyrics to "Who I Was Born to Be", the only original track on Susan Boyle's chart-topping, 9 million-selling I Dreamed a Dream album. Not too shabby at all.
And now Audra Mae is about to see her own dream come true.
Audra Mae and her band The Almighty Sound will be releasing their self-titled album on Feb. 14, 2012. The 11-track album is quite a departure from her darker, more dramatic release The Happiest Limb. Audra Mae & The Almighty Sound is a celebration of her own blossoming as a performer, the perfect storm of all her influences, spiked with the energy of a group who honed their chops in a live setting.
"The Real Thing" was written with Bravo's Platinum Hit contestant Jackie Tohn and will give old fans and first time listeners a taste of what is to come:
