Discovery: Ainsley Farrell

Ainsley Farrell is an American singer songwriter who now calls Sydney, Australia home. Having already received a lot of attention in Australia, and a placement in Netflix show Afflicted, I feel a little late to party in discovering her. Yet, I’m glad I did. Her latest is called The Way Back.

By Graeme Smith

The Way Back explores the feeling of worry that comes from a friend who’s far away struggling. Ainsley wrote the song as a way to reaching out to her friend who was having mental difficulties and the track is infused with a sense of authentic emotion, brought to life through thoughtful lyrics. It’s all delivered against a backdrop of scuzzy but gentle rock instrumentals.

The first single of her forthcoming EP Dirt, you can check out The Way Back below.
