Tinsley is a Seattle-based singer and songwriter whose songs explore love, growth, and learning to love oneself. Inspired by 80s new wave, she weaves together emotion-driven lyrics and melodies to create a vibrant, synth-infused sound.
Tinsley grew up singing in church and picked up acoustic guitar in high school to share her original songs on YouTube. After graduating from college and starting her marketing career, she began playing acoustic shows around Seattle in 2017. She was soon approached on Instagram by electronic artist and producer, Jake Crocker – marking the beginning of their collaborative relationship. In a matter of months, she joined Crocker onstage to perform their co-written music as an opening act for Ryan Caraveo at the Neptune Theatre, following with festival appearances at Capitol Hill Block Party and Bumbershoot in 2018.
She released her debut single, “In Bloom” produced by Crocker in November 2018, and her second single, “Narcissus” aired on KEXP by DJ Marco Collins. She is currently working on her debut EP.
