Ainsley Costello drops ‘Little Sister’ music video

Ainsley Costello brings her sensational single ‘Little Sister’ to life in her new music video, released on April 15.

In partnership with Jason Johnston of Fifty Oars motion Pictures Co. no detail is left to chance. Costello uses a variety of shots of herself singing and playing guitar on her bed, glancing at a flat-screen television on which her sister is sitting with her back to the camera. We also see shots of Ainsley singing his song, alternating between sleek red and black outfits. These two colors are skillfully able to convey his mixed feelings about his older sister; she loves him, but she also hates feeling like she’s always stuck in his shadow, chasing an ideal that isn’t her. a goal. Costello cleverly sneaks in a quick pick swipe from Taylor Swift (someone she’s always been compared to), just another example of how you can live in someone else’s shadow. From the first frame to the last, this song reinforces the challenges of stepping out of a “big sister’s” shadow.

In a world dominated by overnight internet sensations and one-off wonders, rising star Ainsley Costello aims to create a legacy that stands the test of time. Delicately delivered yet powerfully deep, Costello’s heartfelt and personal approach to lyricism results in a seraphic, easily digestible and comforting listening experience.

At a very young age, Ainsley began performing with a full band of professional-level adult musicians. She could regularly hold a 3 hour cover at just 14 and turn heads when you heard this little blonde girl sing “Folsom Prison Blues”. Before COVID, Ainsley had already performed more than 130 shows in 10 states. Notable performances included shows at NAMM in 2019 and 2020 and Americana Fest 2019. She also performed on both “The Voice” and “American Idol” when she was just 13 years old. At 14, Ainsley became one of the youngest artists endorsed by Breedlove Guitars and has also since been endorsed by Mackie Sound by Loud Audio. but dig deeper and you’ll discover a wealth of diverse musical influences and lyrics that speak to the insecurities of today’s teenage girls. In February 2020, Ainsley and her family moved to Nashville just as the music world and industry was shutting down. But throughout quarantine, Ainsley has used her time to write new material and connect with dozens of Nashville “row writers” to hone and perfect her craft. Creating a body of work that says a lot about his young age, Ainsley already has a catalog of over 150 unreleased songs. In 2021, Ainsley released one song each month, the equivalent of his second studio album.
