Carleigh Aikins Announces Debut Solo Album

Today, Canadian singer-songwriter Carleigh Aikins announces her long-awaited debut solo album, Junk Jewelry, due December 3 via SilverDoor Music. Her recently released singles, “Letting You Go” and “Lose My Number,” are out now.

After years of touring and performing on world stages as a supporting band member, or the shiny pretty thing standing in the shadows of prominent artists as a backing vocalist, Carleigh Aikins finally emerges to reveal herself as a true Canadian vocal treasure worthy of the spotlight on her debut solo album Junk Jewelry.

Working with producer/engineer/mixer Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, The National), as well as Don Kerr (Bahamas, Ron Sexsmith), Evan Tighe (Patrick Watson, La Force, Elisapie), Brad Barr (The Barr Brothers) and an array of Montreal and Toronto’s finest musicians; Aikins offers this eclectic gang of tunes which draw from the varied influences and flavors of rock, soul, and pop found in the many bands Aikins has been a part of in the past.
