- 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
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.
