About this album

Release date 2007

All songs written by Audrey Auld-Mezera, except Track 2 written by Bonnie Lamb (of Bonnie and Clyde).

“Strong, mature album” David Obermann, KUT Austin

“a superb vocalist and songwriter in the roots tradition… excellent collection… an artist who deserves wide recognition…” ~ C. Baguely, Country Music People, UK

“Lost Men and Angry Girls” chronicles the past three years Audrey Auld-Mezera (Mez-air-ah) has spent living on the coast of Northern California. Musically and personally it’s been an eventful period for the Chris Austin Song Contest winner and two-time ARIA nominee (Australian Recording Industry Association).

“My first year in America was spent living in Bolinas in Marin County. It’s the Wild West! Within a matter of months I got married, moved hemispheres, filed a restraining order on a stalker, dealt with grief, and missed my musician friends back home” says Audrey.

No surprise then at the title of this album.

Mezera calls it ‘Ameri-kinda’ music - traditional American music influences with Australian roots.

Love, Hate, Life, Death, Money and Music.
Mezera’s writing has evolved to be less about the state of her heart and more about the path we all share as human beings in this time of political and global imbalance. But there’s no finger-pointing in these songs of small towns, self-help, lives derailed, musical heroes, lost men and angry girls. Mezera travels her path with humor, insight and a great band.

“the songs here consolidate Mezera’s enormous writing talent” ~ Forte Magazine, Aust.
