A sought-after collaborator and touring /recording back-up singer, Aikins has appeared with some of the world’s greatest artists on renowned stages across the globe. She now steps forward with her ecclectic debut solo effort titled JUNK JEWELRY.
With tracks produced by Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, The National), the record features contributions from Don Kerr (Ron Sexsmith, Bahamas), Drew Jurecka (Dua Lipa), Brad Barr (The Barr Brothers) and members of Patrick Watson, The MynaBirds, Brave Shores, Paper Bird and Zeus.
JUNK JEWELRY is brimming with more than just her own lush background arrangements. Aikins’ powerful ability as a lead vocalist shines through. Her dynamic range from tender vibrato to distinct raw rasp finally take centre stage, where Carleigh belongs.
