Australian vocalist Kylie Auldist will be no stranger to soul & funk fans, her singing having featured on her own albums ‘Still Life’, ‘Made Of Stone’, and ‘Just Say’ (Tru Thoughts), in The Bamboos, as well as Freestyle Records own Cookin’ On 3 Burners.
Auldist’s voice is currently topping the pop charts across Europe and now added to commercial radio playlists here in Australia as the Kungs remix of Cookin’ On 3 Burners ‘This Girl’ has proven a hit with club audiences as well as pop fans.
Freestyle Records has announced that it will be Auldist’s new home and that her brand new album is Family Tree, produced by Kylies’ long time collaborators Lance Ferguson (The Bamboos/Lanu/CO3B/Black Feeling) and Graeme Pogson (of Aussie electronic duo GL). The album is claimed to be a modern collection of boogie, disco and electro-funk inspired tracks that evoke the feel and sound of late 70’s & early 80’s club classics.
Freestyle Records A&R man Greg Boraman said, “Whilst Kylie has featured on various Freestyle releases over the years, to have her fully onboard to release this incredible album is exciting and feels like a natural and long overdue happy collaboration.”
Kylie, herself a longstanding admirer of Freestyle Records stated; “Freestyle take Soul seriously! I’ve known them a long time now and they’ve always embraced great music. I know I’m in good company and it feels right to be a part of the Freestyle family!”
Freestyle will release the 5 track, 12 inch single/download ‘Waste Of Time’, followed by the ‘Family Tree’ album later in 2016.
