Audra's musical path began when her grandmother Estelle Karp taught her how to sing at 3 years old. Audra mainly focused on musical theater and opera throughout grade school, then expanded to pop/rock music in college. Audra also had the privilege of studying vocal performance with Robert Ray (Atlanta) and John Hall (Los Angeles) throughout the 1990's. Before graduating from high school in Atlanta, Audra was named MVP (most valuable player) in one of the first Grammy High School Jazz Bands in 1993. As a Freshman at UCLA, Audra was selected as a solo competitor in the school's prestigious Spring Sing competition. At the Univ. of Southern California, Audra was a co-founder of the SoCal VoCals in 1996, and can be heard as a soloist on the a cappella group's debut CD that was released in 1997. More than a decade later, Audra dove into songwriting, and her debut EP called "I'm All In" showcases her melodic and heartfelt writing style on four songs. The EP was produced by Michael Getches and will be released in July 2012 via iTunes and other digital distribution outlets. Audra and her band (Tommy Reeves, Maria Martinez and Ron Suffradini) will make their Southern California debut on June 1, 2 and 3, as a featured performer at The Home Entertainment Show in Irvine, where more than 10,000 music lovers will gather for this annual convention focused on high-end audio and live performances.
