Following the Vancouver show, she had two more gigs lined up on the West Coast. At the end of the month she heads to Europe for more dates. 

The Toronto-based singer/songwriter is on tour for her second album, Darling of the Afterglow. The album follows the Juno-nominated, critically acclaimed Right From Real (2014).

Darling of the Afterglow features contributions from a team of Toronto musicians along with Ainsworth’s programming, samples and string arrangements. According to a press release, “The songs on Darling Of The Afterglow were all begun away from home, before being brought to fruition in her hometown.” Songs include a cover of Chris Isaac‘s “Wicked Game”, previously covered by Lana del Rey, among others

Opening the show was Vancouver-based singer Nashlyn.
