Kylie Castle - Bio
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 country with a smattering of rock'n'roll.
When Kylie was moved to pen her first song on hearing of the passing of Australian music legend, Slim Dusty in 2003, little did she know how the sentiment in her song would touch others and earn for her the Gidgee Coal Bush Ballad Award - Female Vocal 2014. Achieving this award again in 2015 & 2017, Kylie, having appreciated the storytelling aspect of music and poetry from a young age, continues to be involved in the traditional Australian Bush Ballad scene.
With a background encompassing country music, rock and roll, old-time dance and the ability to deliver a great gospel set, Kylie Castle's diversity has her appearing at various music festivals and a wide variety of events. Kylie’s current albums “Dusty Bottle” and “Nothin’s Botherin’ Me” contain a delightful mix of original music recorded and produced by Stuie French, Swingin' Doors Studio (Sydney - Australia).
“Your recording blew me away – it certainly ticks all the boxes. It is very Australian yet of world standard”
— WALLY SPARROW (Country Brekky Radio)
“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)
