Early life[edit]

Ball was born in Vancouver, British Columbia on March 31, 1983.[5][6][7]

Career[edit]

Ball has found a fan following through her band Hey Ocean! and through bronies, the adult fans of the television show My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, a show in which she voices and sings as two of the six main characters, Applejack and Rainbow Dash.[8] Ball has been to several My Little Pony fan conventions, including BronyCon and Everfree Northwest as a guest of honor. Ball stated in her documentary A Brony Tale, in which she is the main subject, "It's (My Little Pony) a really important part of a lot of these people's lives. So yeah, as long as My Little Ponies exist, there will be bronies."

On May 2, 2017, she released the music video "Crazy" and on June 2, released her debut solo EP Gold in You.[9][10]
