This Friday, the super talented Liv Austen will release a song that I think is very important to her in so many ways because it is born of this love. ‘Why Don’t You’ is a song that tells us we should be as generous to ourselves as we are with the outside world. It is a song that on first hearing sounds like advice but on repeated listening evolves into a mission statement from the singer to herself.
Norwegian-born singer-songwriter Liv Austen announces that she will be releasing tracks ‘Detour’ and ‘Whole Heart’ from her debut album ‘A Moment of Your Time’. The tracks will be available from Friday May 17th as a double A-side limited edition 7” vinyl, sold exclusively on Liv’s website and at live performances, and available across download and streaming services.
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.
Liv Austen has signed with NUA Entertainment, and is set to release a new album in the autumn. After playing numerous shows this year – including the prestigious C2C, as as a variety of festivals – Liv’s next move is her latest single, ‘Window Shopping’. We had the chance to ask Liv six quick questions ahead of the release of the upbeat, high energy track, on 20 July.
