Audra is an Arizona-based band from Mesa, Arizona formed by brothers Bret and Bart Helm. Audra broke out onto the national scene in 2000 when they signed with indie label, Projekt Records. After two well-received albums and well-over 300 live performances, the band decided to leave Projekt and go back to the ‘do-it-yourself’ approach that started their career in the 90s.
The band gained the attention of Davey Havok, lead singer of AFI, who chose Audra’s 2002 album Going To The Theatre as one of his top 10 CDs of the year. The next year, AP Magazine selected Audra as one of the top ten bands on the scene. 11 songs from their first two albums were featured throughout three seasons of MTV’s The Real World and several independent films.
On May 19, 2009, Audra released Everything Changes, their first album in 7 years. It was recorded in Tempe, AZ at Uranus Recording (owned by Robin Wilson, lead singer of Gin Blossoms, and produced by Robb Vallier (Dave Stewart, Paul McCartney, Peter Murphy).
Audra has recently shared the stage with AFI, She Wants Revenge and Nitzer Ebb.
