Aspiring to the Highest Ideals

Ainslie is razor sharp…on a CD which manages to be topical and tender, dark yet uplifting, rich in polished poetry and raw emotion, a love call, and a call to action.

“The Feral Crow” is, most of all, a creative achievement that aspires to the highest ideals. It’s the work of a mature artist whose life experience and musical experience are brought to bear with impressive integrity.
