Kylie talks about her new album 'Light as a Feather.'
Light as a Feather is eleven tracks of my songs.
They're songs that pay tribute to my hometown of Bellingen.
I co-wrote two of the songs with Lola Patricia Brinton and John Seers and I wrote the rest of the album.
And I actually wrote alot of the tracks in the last minute because I had time.
We started recording in June 2021 and then COVID came back and so I had time to go back over the songs and write some new songs that I'm really happy with.
Michael Carpenter produced the album.
The multi instrumentalist. Fantastic representation and understanding respectfully of my music.
Double bass, dobro guitar, acoustic guitars, organ, piano, mandolin. Just layering different instruments to different tracks that suit the song beautifully and I'm so so happy and really really good at guiding my vocals aswell with what the song needed and I'm really really grateful.
We also had Zane Banks play his fine pickin' banjo on there and Luke Moller aswell was sending through fiddle tracks, lovely fiddle through most of the tracks aswell. Sounds great.
As a team we have produced eleven tracks that tell the story of my hometown,the place where I grew up in and not only that but they are songs that people identify with.
Songs that are Bluegrass, country, old school, traditional and songs that have these traditional instruments in them and it also allowed me to be myself.
And to be true to myself as a songwriter.
Every song is a song in it's own right.
And i'm so thrilled to bits that it's all come together so beautifully.
And the lucky eleven album 'Light as a Feather' I feel from the bottom of my heart is going to do really well.
What I'd really love to achieve with this record is longevity.
I would like each song to stand on it's own and I would like people to listen back to this album in twenty years time and go - that was a great album.
That was a great representation of the countryside, farmers, the valley, Bellingen and be able to identify their lives to those tracks and understand them themselves.
I really want people to love this album and remember it.
I feel spiritually that I have connected to back where I am from.
I feel that there is an element of Gospel in the album.
I see it being timeless in that respect and I think that this album is really going to affect people on a deeper level.
And I'm affected by it through the whole process of producing it and so I really feel that people are going to love it.
Really love it.
