New Jersey based hard-rock band, Aurin, signed to Pavement Entertainment, initially began as the musical child of Guitarist, Andrew Wayne. His goal was to create songs that appealed to the mind, heart, and soul of the listener by combining beautiful harmonies with a heavy style that demanded attention. He was later joined by drummer, Linda Medina (who studied under Professional International Jazz Drummer, Karl Latham), Powerhouse vocalist, Sarah Anderson, and most recently bassist, Joe Palamara.
Together, Aurin is taking the Hard-Rock scene by storm, with their RAW performances, (and growing up as products of mental illness and poverty) leaving their fans with a message… “You are not alone in this world. Never give up hope. No matter how bad things can get, you will ALWAYS have the ability to take those negative feelings and turn them into something. For me, it was music… it became the songs we play for you today” says vocalist, Sarah Anderson. With their label debut, “Catharsis,” (available worldwide) Aurin plans to help raise mental illness awareness one show at a time. For “Catharsis,” Aurin worked with Grammy Award winning producer, Jason Corsaro (Soundgarden/Motorhead/Madonna), at The Barber Shop Studios in Hopatcong, NJ. The album was mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana/Staind/Disturbed).
Aurin has recently toured with Art of Dying, shared the stage with multiple national acts, and also is endorsed by Digitech, Steve Clayton USA, Curt Mangan Strings, Lampifier Microphones, Ultimate Ears, 69 Chosen Clothing, Dirtbag Clothing, The Music Zoo, and Andrew Wayne is proudly a Gibson artist as well.
