Continuing to learn the music business from C.J. Kearney and The Superior Band, she began opening shows for performers like B.B. King, Willie Clayton, Bobby Bland, and Betty Wright from the east to the west coast. Audery and The Superior Band have performed at many Blues Festivals from La Grange to Dallas to Houston, Texas where she got great reviews. She periodically returns close to her hometown to perform at The Fairgrounds to a packed house. In 2003, Audery recorded her first CD single, "Ready to Love You (Baby Come Back)" and "Whole Lotta Woman". The CD "No House, No Home Without My Woman" was released as The Superior Band.

**** I felt the best song on a recent CD by Little Buck ("I'mma Bluesman") wasn't by Mr. Buck but by Lady Audrey who provided a percolating dancer called "Never Too Old To Get Your Groove On". It had hit written all over it and really deserved an album of it's own...and perhaps I'm a prophet for here it is! Surprisingly, it's not even the top cut on this superbly produced set of upbeat party Soul, slow jams and even a bonus Gospel triad.
Behind the scenes and largely responsible for the success of the record are writer/producers Rue Davis and Harrison Calloway who provide Audrey with quality songs, real drums, plentiful bottom and even some real horns (such as the sweet sax solo by "Ronnie" on "That Candy"). The commercial potential is naturally the three irresistible booty shakers- "Work Me 'Til I Sweat", the title cut and "Ride The Saddle", plus the requisite dysfunctional relationship slowie ("You Can Have Him Back")- but the highlight of the disc is the New Orleans tribute "The Storm Is Over". A gorgeous, earnest vocal by the Lady and a simple, sympathetic arrangement that manages to not be maudlin despite the tragedy of which it refers. Besides it's positive and uplifting. "The storm is over now...you can make it!". Sweet. Two more inspirational jams follow that balance out the record righteously.
