Toronto-based and Juno-nominated artist, composer and producer Lydia Ainsworth released her stunning sophomore album “Darling of the Afterglow” a few weeks ago. To celebrate, she is taking the record on the road for her first-ever full U.S. headlining tour. That tour will bring her to the 7th Street Entry on 4/29 supported by locals Dem Yuut and Eric Mayson. Tickets are still available HERE.
“Jimi Hendrix said you need fantasy,” says Toronto’s Lydia Ainsworth, “to see reality more clearly.” On her sublime second album, Darling of the Afterglow, Ainsworth upholds Hendrix’s wisdom in the best way. Vividly imagined and richly felt, the follow-up to Ainsworth’s Juno-nominated Right from Real (2014) is an album of intimate emotions projected in heightened widescreen, where yearning pop classicism and classical smarts merge with other-worldly synthetic sounds and weird-gothic R&B influences.
