The Wee Red Bar, Edinburgh
Sunday 17th December 2023
PINLIGHT headline The Wee Red Bar in Edinburgh this December, with support from Dara Dubh & Aino Elina.
PINLIGHT is the alt-pop songwriting project of Edinburgh-based multi-instrumentalist Jenny Laahs. Jenny is a hearing-impaired musician, acquiring a profound unilateral hearing loss at the age of 4. She began performing on the songwriter scene in Edinburgh in 2014, playing ukulele and piano. In 2018 she moved towards a more electronic sound and adopted the moniker PINLIGHT, in reference to A Pin-Light Bent by Joanna Newsom. Inspired by Kate Bush, Passion Pit, and Stealing Sheep, PINLIGHT combines these influences into retro-tinged soundscapes, with themes of self-affirmation, love and relationships.
After gigging around Edinburgh with a live band in 2018, Jenny retreated to her home studio in 2019 to record the independently produced and released debut album, Grow Slow, produced entirely in mono in recognition of her hearing loss. Since then, she has continued to write, record and release a variety of singles, including local, national and international collaborations. As said by Advosound, PINLIGHT is "simply one of the best up and coming prospects in Scotland" - one to watch as her journey continues.
