Kylie Castle delivers a variety of easy listening music ranging from traditional Australian folk and bush ballads mingled with warm laid-back stories through to bluesy, and up-tempo American styled country, merged with classic rock n roll.
Having always appreciated the storytelling aspect of music and poetry, Kylie was moved to pen her first song on hearing of the passing of Australian music legend, Slim Dusty in 2003 and continues to expand this skill, picking up the Daryl Kirkup Award - Country Radio Single 2014 and the Gidgee Coal Bush Ballad Award – Female Vocal 2014, 2015 & 2017.
Kylie’s albums “Dusty Bottle” and “Nothin’s Botherin’ Me” both contain award winning songs.
Kylie always loved music but the only way to get her to sing was to allow her to hide behind the big old timber kitchen door or be just one in a crowd. Eventually she joined a local country music club, flirted with a short stint in a rock’n’roll band and found her passion of expression in songwriting. From her home on the outskirts of Aratula, a small town nestled at the base of the Great Dividing Range south-west of Brisbane, Kylie travels to perform as a solo artist, duo or band member for community events and private functions, in pubs, paddocks and festivals, cafes, clubs and churches, backyards, barns and beaches.
“Your recording blew me away – it certainly ticks all the boxes. It is very Australian yet of world standard”
WALLY SPARROW (Country Brekky Radio)
“From the first notes of the title track, Dusty Bottle, right through the other 11 tracks, I was enthralled”
PAUL ROWE (Capital News)
“I melted like an ice cube in a hot cup of tea at the first listen. Uptempos, blues, honky tonks, R&R, boogy, I don't know how you manage to create all that”
ROLAND LANZARONE (Le Cri du Coyote magazine & RCF Haute Normandie Radio)
