Liv Austen Set To Release Debut Album ‘A Moment Of Your Time’

Liv Austen is one of the most promising country music stars in the UK today and has been making waves performing at country music festivals, both here and in Nashville throughout the last 18 months. Following the pop/ country trend of the new wave of rising young artists Liv’s uptempo songs, straddle both traditional and mainstream.

Her singles and live performances have been amassing steady critical acclaim from the country music media and pop platforms. Following a knock out performance at this years C2C Music Festival in London and on the Jack FM stage at Cornbury Music Festival, collaborating with the likes of Ben Earle, Jessica Sharman, and Ash Howes, her debut album ‘A Moment Of Your Time’ is to be released on October 19 via NUA Entertainment, with further shows at Millport Country Music Festival and One Night In Nashville.

Reviews amongst the online community, interviews on specialist Country TV and National Radio, a session for Bob Harris, and a newcomer profile in Country Magazine aside, you may be forgiven for thinking this Nordic beauty has a very familiar face, as Liv has also made many screen appearances as an actress, the most noteable being one of the synths on the Channel 4/ AMC drama ‘HUMANS’.

Liv hasn’t always been a natural performer however. Growing up in Norway, she suffered from terrible stage fright. It wasn’t until a 3 year stint in Belgium in her late teens, that her music teacher re-discovered her beautiful singing voice and taught her how to overcome her nerves. Liv started writing music at 16 and now living in the UK full time in her 20’s performs with the confidence and sass of a superstar on any stage.

Liv studied musical theatre in Oslo and went to acting college in Guildford, where she was discovered whle gigging at a hotel in East London, by ground breaking Grammy award winner and electronic music pioneer Paul Hardcastle, famous for his global smash hit ‘19’.

You can see Liv on the following:

Sun 2nd September – The Horn & Half Moon, Bishops Stortford

Sat 8th September – The Millport Country Music Festival

Sun 7th October – One Night in Nashville, Manchester

Further details and tickets are available from her official website.
