About this Artist

Canadian producer Lydia Ainsworth developed the minimalist electronic pop songs that would make up her first solo recordings from audio sketches she made while enrolled in a film-scoring program at Montreal’s McGill University.

Splitting her time between Toronto and Brooklyn, Ainsworth recorded for years, drawing on her love of a wide variety of shadowy musical influences as well as her background in composing and orchestration to craft her tracks. A self-taught cellist, Ainsworth blended string arrangements and layers of vocal samples into her tunes, augmenting sparse, eerie electronic beats with walls of dense Kate Bush-informed vocals. Her debut album, Right from Real, appeared in 2014 on Artbus Records, the Canadian indie label that also served as a home for like-minded artists such as Grimes and Doldrums. Her second LP, a still bolder set of electro art pop titled Darling of the Afterglow, arrived via Artbus and Bella Union in 2017. ~ Fred Thomas, Rovi
