With an all female band, Aurin has created a sound and space that is rooted in the soul of Memphis fused with the legendary grit of Chicago. Aurin's band, The Human Experience (also known as The Hex) met at Columbia College Chicago in 2017 and have been combining their collective influences ever since. With influences from rock, punk, and funk music, Aurin and her Hex give a diverse voice to the complexity of human experience. Influenced by the very same, Aurin and The Hex delivers a new synthesis of sound to the R&B world and bring it to life with an electrifying five piece band. As an artist, Aurin is proud to go outside of her comfort zone to find meaning where others may not and tell those untold stories. Her most recent track, "Addiction" puts an unusual spin on self-awareness and is her unique take on what it means to be human. If you let them, Aurin and The Hex will put their spell on you.
