Ainsley Farrell is a native Californian, who currently resides in Sydney, Australia. From her early teens, you could find her singing and grooving along to Aretha Franklin’s version of the song ‘Respect’ on repeat in her bedroom.
Since the release of Dark Hours in May 2017, the EP has received airplay from radio stations all around Australia, including national station Triple J. Farrell was named FBi Radio's Independent Artist of the Week following her single release ‘Lady Long Hair’ back in January 2017. Songs ‘Dark Hours’ and ‘Lady Long Hair’ have been given high rotation on Sydney’s FBi Radio.
Dark Hours EP has been described as “a bright and beguiling new record from a special talent, “Dark Hours”, for all of its somewhat mystical sense of vagueness, is a record to climb inside and explore; a most intriguing voice to follow in to the dark.” - Tom Johnson from GoldFlakePaint
She has supported Australian artists Julia Jacklin, Stella Donnelly, Angie McMahon, Jess Locke, Katy Steele, Brightness, Slow Dancer, Emma Davis, and Morning TV. This year, Farrell is back in the U.S. gearing up for a single release and a 2018 national tour.
