Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Ainsley Costello. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify I liked her music very much.
I was immediately struck by the music of this artist, the thing that impressed me the most is that this girl is very young but already seems very mature in terms of composition.
Her voice expresses confidence and her interpretation is solid and she manages to make you believe the words of the lyrics.
Ainsley Costello is a true professional offering quality music … maybe we found the new Taylor Swift.
Her new single Little Sister has nothing to envy to the songs that dominate the charts, honestly, I have not found flaws in terms of production and performance.
An artist with clear ideas on how to offer her music to the masses and who certainly has all the credentials to stand out.
I recommend everyone to go and listen to Ainsley Costello as I believe she has a bright future ahead of her.
Little Sister is Ainsley Costello’s Single Out Now!
Solid and Mature!
In a world dominated by internet sensations and world dominating superstars, Ainsley Costello is determined to create a career that stands the test of time. 17-year-old Ainsley began performing in school talent shows and musical theater when she was 7. By the time she was 14, she was regularly holding down 3-hour sets with a full band of adult professionals. After performing at NAMM and receiving her first endorsement from Breedlove Guitars at 14, she began touring the West Coast full-time while finishing high-school online. At 15 she began taking classes at the prestigious Berklee College of Music while simultaneously finishing her H.S. finals. She is now finishing up her sophomore year at Berklee, studying Music Business, while pursuing music full time.
Delicately delivered yet powerfully profound, Ainsley’s heartfelt and personal approach to lyricism translates into an easily digestible and heartwarming listening experience. The Seattle native, now based in Nashville, released a strikingly diverse debut album titled ‘You Know I Am’ when she was just 15. On the surface, it was a collection of country pop songs but dig deeper and you’ll unravel a multitude of diverse musical influences and lyrics that speak to the insecurities of today’s teen girls.
Prior to the pandemic, Ainsley had performed over 130 shows in 10 states. In January of 2020, she and her family relocated to Nashville, just as the world and the music industry shut down. But that didn’t stop Ainsley from entrenching herself in the Nashville writing scene. During that time, she wrote over 100 songs and recorded and released 12 singles in 2021. Now, with a catalog of over 150 unreleased songs and 20 studio recorded releases (streaming worldwide) Ainsley already has a body of work that speaks volumes for her young age.
Initially inspired by a strong cadre of female country artists like CAM, Kelsea Ballerini, Taylor Swift and Caitlyn Smith, Ainsley found rock inspiration in the heart of Nashville’s diverse music scene. Learning that some of her favorite bands (Paramore, Kings of Leon) came from Nashville has inspired her to explore a broader, edgier sound – while remaining lyrically true to her heart.
