ARTIST: Audrey Auld
SONG: “I’d Leave Me Too”
BIRTHDATE: Jan 14, nineteen sixty something.
AMBITIONS: To be true to myself and to the muse.
TURN-OFFS: Negativity and meanness.
TURN-ONS: Creativity, spontaneity, open-hearts, open-minds, kindness.
DREAM GIG: A band show at the Ryman.
TV ADDICTIONS: I grew up without TV so I don’t follow any specific shows. I did enjoy Desperate Housewives though!
CELEBRITY CRUSH: Edie Falco.
I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT: House key, notebook, phone, Gypsy.
PETS: Dogs – Gypsy Joe Baker and Cora Lynn Mezera, 12 chickens, 3 bullfrogs.
MY NIGHTLY RITUAL BEFORE BED: Lock up the chickens, lock the back door, say goodnight to Cora Lynn, adjust the house temperature, brush teeth, glass of water, turn down air-filter, say goodnight to Gypsy, snuggle husband.
I WROTE THIS SONG: after an argument with my partner, who made me feel dreadful about myself. I was sitting on the jetty outside our home in Woy Woy Bay, crying into the ocean when this song came. I didn’t realize the humor in it until I spoke to my sister on the phone later that day and she giggled.
