 Kylie2 150      


Adelaide Singer/Songwriter Kylie Brice sounds like Missy Higgins meets Clare Bowditch. Born with a deep love of music, Kylie would sing with joy as a child. As she grew into her teenage years, Kylie began feeling insecure about her voice and was hesitant to openly share her thoughts and emotions with others. Behind closed doors; Kylie loved to write songs, a private escape to reflect on and digest life experiences. Check out kyliebricemusic.com

Lily and the Drum. Some risks are worth taking. When Lily and John decided three years ago to leave the safety net of a full band and embark on the duo project they had no idea what the public reaction might be. Much to their surprise the public and music industry reaction has all been positive. With a great fan base and two albums in the Top 25 Most Played Australian Blues and Roots Charts Lily and the Drum have had little time to look back. Described as one of the hardest working duos in Australia Lily and the Drum continue to tour promoting their second full length album “Welcome Change”. www.lilyandthedrum.com.au

Set your mind at ease as their songs take you on a journey of spirit.
