Acclaimed Australian Artist Ainslie Wills Announces 5 European Dates
Headlines Slaughtered Lamb 26th September New Single ‘Society’ Out Now
“All the ingredients of mature pop bliss lie in the work of Ainslie Wills” – The Guardian
“Seemingly limitless vocals” – The Line Of Best Fit
Having earned her position amongst the pantheon of acclaimed songwriters globally, Ainslie Wills returns to Europe for five special shows including a headline date in London at The Slaughtered Lamb on 26 September 2018.
Blessed with a voice of assured range and deep character, the Melbourne singer-songwriter has recently released her latest stunning single, ‘Society’.
“I want this song to be a talking point for people who feel restricted by the pressure that society places on us to fit into a conventional way of living and existing,” says Ainslie. “I know I feel that pressure constantly.”
To celebrate the UK/EU dates, Ainslie has released a live version of Society, filmed on her front porch. “Amongst the common noises of suburbia, we had a limited time to shoot this before the light faded. We filmed it in one take in the stairwell of my old house.”
Ainslie’s captivating live show has seen her support the likes of Leon Bridges, Grouplove, Michael Kiwanuka, Lianne La Havas and Tom Chaplin, grace the stages of The Great Escape, Falls Festival and several other renowned festivals in Australia, as well as selling out headline shows in Australia and the UK.
With her beautifully crafted and honestly told stories, Wills has gathered an army of lifelong converts at home and internationally. ‘Oh The Gold’ EP was picked up in the UK, becoming Lauren Laverne’s ‘Track Of The Day’ on her BBC Radio 6 program and played on Guy Garvey’s ‘Finest Hour’, also on BBC6.
Ainslie will release her highly anticipated second LP ‘All You Have is All You Need’ in early 2019.
