As a child, the only way her parents could get Kylie to sing was to allow her to hide behind the big old timber kitchen door. A few records and the ABC’s wireless transmissions of the day were the source of music for the young child who loved to participate in life on their wheat and cattle property near Wandoan, Queensland. A rare rendition of ‘Grass Hopper Loose in Queensland’ is one that friends remember well.

The death of Slim Dusty led her to pen her first song, “The Friend I’ve never Met,” which continues to be a regular request as does ‘Dusty Bottle’ a light-hearted favourite.

Kylie’s love of this great country, its remarkable people, and the stories told by songs, has always been an inspiration to her throughout her entire life. Sharing the beauty of this unique nation and its people is close to her heart and she believes important in keeping the spirit of Australia alive.

Kylie Castle is an unassuming singer/songwriter with a remarkable capacity to elicit emotion from songs. It is not unusual to sit transfixed as a story unfolds before you or to close your eyes and be lost in a moment, only to open them to a powerful display of vocal ability or infectious toe-tapping. With her congenial and unpretentious personality, Kylie Castle’s distinctive and dynamic vocals have been enjoyed in pubs, paddocks and festivals, cafes, clubs and churches, backyards, barns and beaches.

After many years of requests from her audiences, Kylie has now released two albums from her songbook.
