Liv Austen is one of the UK’s select group of rising country stars, in part thanks to her successful performance at C2C Festival last year and the release of her EP ‘Workin’ Man’s Dream’. She went on to be represented by Think Country and has spent the year playing shows around the nation, releasing singles and building her fanbase. Norwegian by birth but having moved over to England to attend drama school, she fell in love with London and decided to stay, gracing our music scene with her country folk and pop country stylings.

Situated in the heart of London’s bustling Camden Town is the Barfly, a pub-cum-music venue that played host to the album launch of Dexeter this past Friday. In high spirits and in high heat, country fans filed into the venue (beers in hand) to witness a night of live music that would be triumphant for all. First up was Liv Austen, who expressed her delight at the sheer volume of folks already gathered to check out the first support act. She was treated to a great deal of respectful silence as she performed each of her tracks, too, with appreciative applause and cheers meeting each lull in music. Joined by her acoustic guitarist, Liv delivered a selection of songs that highlighted both her gritty low range and fluttering, pure high range, in addition to excellent songwriting and beautifully-crafted melodies. Her set included each track from her debut EP ‘Workin’ Man’s Dream’, as well as a track about having two choices in each situation and ‘Don’t Regret A Single One’, a sweet little ditty about every man she’s been in love with.

FEATURED: Liv Austen ‘Workin’ Man’s Dream’

liv austen workin' man's dream

Norway-born, UK-living Liv Austen has recently crept onto many fans’ radar through her appearance at the Brooklyn Bowl with her band The Banned at this year’s C2C Festival in London. With her eclectic brand of folky country pop, her EP ‘Workin’ Man’s Dream’ has gone further intro solidifying her place on the British and European country music scene, and it seems like there are big things ahead for the songstress. Moving away from her training in acting (that saw her perform around both of her countries of residence), Liv’s focus on music is an entirely welcomed one; her EP, although only four tracks in length, serves as just a hint of what she is capable of as it is full of catchy, well-written material from start to finish.
