DIARY - 29 SEPTEMBER 2003
TASMANIA TO TEXAS
Auld, fresh from a series of acclaimed American concerts and guest
role with Bill Chambers on the third Australian tour by Canadian troubadour
Fred Eaglesmith, opens the show with the revealing video clip of her
song I'd Leave Me Too.
Tasmanian born Audrey wrote most of her second album Losing Faith
about her split with Bill after a four year romance but still performs
with him and releases his albums on her Reckless Records label.
But the video
of this song, from first solo album The Fallen, is an humorous vignette
about a lover taking all his goods and chattels from the marital home
after a ruptured romance.
Ironically, since releasing her latest disc Audrey has set up house with
a new husband so the next video may depict a home being filled with love
