Singer-songwriter Audrey Auld-Mezera, a one time Nashvillian, died on Sunday, Aug. 9 following a battle with cancer. She was 51 and had been living in California.

The Australia native’s full-length solo debut The Fallen was nominated for Best Country Album by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA). During her career she also received a second ARIA nomination.

Auld worked with musicians including Bill Chambers, Kieran Kane, Fred Eaglesmith, Mary Gauthier, Dale Watson, Kasey Chambers, and Carrie Rodriguez. Auld’s music was used on television shows Justified, Longmire, NCIS: New Orleans and The Good Guys.

In recent years she hosted songwriting workshops for inmates in San Quentin Prison. Her final album, Hey Warden, was inspired by those experiences and released earlier this year.

She is survived by husband, Mez Mezera. Funeral arrangements have not been announced.
