    Debut Single for Starmaker finalist Christy Kilpatrick

    2007 Starmaker finalist Christy Kilpatrick releases her debut single ‘Wishing You Were Here’ on NfS 116 August’s compilation.

    A gifted storyteller with a passion for pure unpretentious melodies Christy Kilpatrick unveils the beauty of everyday experiences through song.

    Walking the line between roots country folk and bluegrass she melds infectious harmonies with a spirited exploration of life love and things that go bump in the night.

    Christy's soothing vocals and soaring country-tinged arrangements invite comparisons with the likes of Gillian Welch Alison Krauss Sarah McLauchlan and Sheryl Crow.

    Her live performances have taken her to Melbourne Fringe Festival Gympie Muster and the Noosa Jazz Festival. No novice to songwriting she’s had ‘By the River’ placed 11th in MusicOz’s Country category and ‘Like a Man’ used as the theme song for a TV pilot series.

    Her album only a matter of weeks away is the soundtrack to a dusk road trip adventure - chasing a warm spring sunset through grassy winding dirt roads
    - with the windows down. Maybe not in a ute though.

    Kilpatrick assembled an enviable ensemble to perform on this stunning debut borrowing the likes of Lee Fielding Ben McCarthy and Pete Williamson from Pete Murray's band The Stonemasons Tim Webb and Dave Sanders|Acre and Mal Winkle.

    With a music degree from the Queensland Conservatorium Christy is no slouch on the instruments herself - but making a record is so much more fun with a posse.

    And the richness of that vibe comes through in the finished product.

    Recorded at Rockinghorse Studios in the Byron Bay hinterland guided by the magic ears of Anthony Lycenko and at GTO in Brisbane by herself and Lee Fielding you can expect Christy Kilpatrick's debut album is a release to get your hot hands on.
