With her beautifully crafted and honestly told stories, singer/songwriter Ainslie Wills has gathered an army of lifelong converts at home and internationally. Following an appearance on #1 Dads’ So Soldier and accompanying triple j Like A Version performance, as well as her 2015 genre-bending Oh The Gold EP, a follow-up to 2013’s Australian Music Prize nominated album You Go Your Way, I’ll Go Mine. Latest single ‘Running Second’ released earlier this year showcases Wills reputation for quietly profound lyricism and musical sincerity and will feature on her forthcoming EP, slated for later this year. The release of her Oh The Gold EP was picked up in the UK, becoming Lauren Laverne’s Track Of The Day on her BBC Radio 6 programme and played on Guy Garvey’s Finest Hour as well as BBC6.
The past year has also seen Wills’ captivating live show reach great heights, recognised by main stage slots at Falls Festival, NYE On The Hill, Queenscliff Music Festival, WOMADelaide, a Splendour In The Grass appearance, and has been invited to support the likes of Leon Bridges, Grouplove, Michael Kiwanuka, Hiatus Kaiyote and Vance Joy.
