Aurin began as a vision of Guitarist Andrew Wayne in 2002. Andrew’s goal was to write music that appealed to the mind, heart, soul, and emotions of the listener by combining beautiful harmonies with an in-your-face heavy-type of style. In 2009, he was joined by drummer Linda Medina who in college, previously studied under Professional International Jazz Drummer, Karl Latham. In October 2010, Sarah Anderson was informed that the band had been looking for a lead vocalist. Excited about the opportunity, and Aurin’s captivating, eclectic, and powerful sound, Sarah immediately auditioned and became a perfect fit. Later Aurin would find bassist Joe Palamara who filled the last and final piece.
Growing up, the members of Aurin have all been effected by challenges such as mental illness, poverty, and bullying. Music was the one channel that provided answers, and allowed the members to connect with one another. “It is our goal to continue using music as a creative outlet and to keep writing songs that our fans can relate to”, says vocalist Sarah Anderson.
The band’s Pavement Entertainment label debut entitled “Catharsis” will be released world-wide via Sony RED in the USA and PHD in EU, JP, and AU on 10/14/2014.
“Through struggle we prevail. Through Struggle we unite. You are not alone…”
