Biography

Becky Ainge is a British contemporary pianist and composer, based in the English county of Dorset. Born in the West Midlands town of Solihull, Becky received her classical training in an environment exhibiting a proud regional identity rooted in both heavy industry and popular music, elements of which exerted a strong stylistic influence upon her musical development. After seven years abroad, immersed in the cultural idyll of Finland's Uusimaa region, Becky returned to England in 2018 with a unique artistic perspective and began to forge her signature style of individualistic compositional minimalism. Becky's contemplative, creative spirit draws upon such disparate influences as raw industrial precision and the natural world, through which her characteristic application of sound contains and punctuates the tranquil, voiceless space underlying each composition. With a growing international audience and frequent airplay on both local and regional radio stations, Becky continues to develop her signature sound, composing on a vintage Steinway piano and recording in her rural home studio. 'Drifting' - (Felted) 26.03.2021 Cast adrift once again in a new but reassuringly familiar vessel, Becky Ainge transports us back to her creative world where the rhythmic forces of human endeavour meet those of nature itself. 2021 is a time to experiment. Bear with me as I place my microphone in slightly different places! Becky :) www.beckyainge.com
