Ainsley Farrell is a native Californian, who now resides in Sydney, Australia. From her early teens until present, she has been influenced by the likes of strong female blues singers like Aretha Franklin, Bessie Smith, and Big Mama Thornton. At age thirteen, you could find Ainsley in her bedroom grooving along to Franklin’s version of the song “Respect”. She is smitten by many other genres and pulls in her influences from a wide array of artists. Many of her lyrical motivations come from her strange dreams and the marvels and mysteries of life.
