Ailsa Tully

Ailsa Tully appearing at this event

London based singer-songwriter Ailsa Tully has created an ethereal world rooted in folk, tinged with indie, and grounded by lofi field recordings. Ailsa’s vocals are tender yet determined, central to the haunting soundscape she has crafted. Her lyrics are unflinchingly honest, rousing and poetic as she explores themes such as her own mental health and her experiences as a woman. Accompanied by an all-female band Ailsa Tully sways between intense emotive harmonies, driving rhythms and modal melodies. Playing the bass in a distinctive and unique way to accompany her voice, she is elevating it from its conventional role and exploring its unknown potential.
