Kylie Auldist

Australia’s most exciting soul diva, Kylie Auldist was born to sing. Hailing from the small farming town of Hay, New South Wales, Kylie was introduced to music at an early age and recorded her first song at just six years old. From such humble beginnings Kylie has grown to become one of Australia’s most respected and accomplished performers, having graced stages the world over, providing emotionally charged, powerful vocals for a variety of musical acts and establishing her own successful career as a solo artist.

Most notably, Kylie has performed with Funk, Soul and Hip Hop outfits including Polyester, Mega Bias and of course The Bamboos and provided studio and live backing vocals for music legends such as Renee Geyer and Jimmy Barnes, thrilling and delighting audiences both at home and abroad.

To quote Melbourne’s PBS Radio website: “Kylie is something of a treasured hometown secret! – She’s never been on Idol or Neighbours but she CAN sing!!”

In 2007 Kylie travelled Europe and the UK as lead singer of Melbourne based soul powerhouse The Bamboos. With her smokey voice and on stage sass Kylie commanded the attention of UK record label Tru Thoughts who snapped up her services as a solo artist and in May 2008 released Kylie’s debut album ‘Just Say’.

‘Just Say’ is co-written and produced by Lance Ferguson of The Bamboos and it’s impossible to resist lead single ‘Community Service Announcement’ received accolades from the likes of Mark Lamarr (BBC), Bobbito Garcia (Kool Bob Love) & DJ Andy Smith.

“Community Service Announcement is the song of the year” – Holla Howard, June 2008.

“Auldist has a wonderfully smokey, well travelled voice” – Alan Ranta Pop Matters. June 2008

Kylie’s follow up album, 2009’s ‘Made of Stone’ was released to similar rave reviews from Soul bible; Black Sheep Magazine and the single ‘In a week, In a day’ was listed by BBC radio’s soul guru Mark Lamarr as one of his records of the year receiving heavy airplay on Radio 2’s ‘God’s Jukebox’.

“The totally delightful ‘In A Week, In a day’ insinuates with understatement … and it will insinuate. After a couple of listens its sass and strut will haunt you (pleasantly) all summer … great track on a great album”. –, 2009.

In 2012 Kylie has critics and fans on the edge of their seats once again awaiting her highly anticipated third album with Tru Thoughts and if ‘Just Say’ and ‘Made of Stone’ are any indication we are witnessing the arrival of soul’s brightest star.
