New Zealand singer and songwriter Kylie Price makes deeply emotional music, with powerful lyricism and captivating hooks. The Dunedin-based artist first made her mark on the country scene picking up a swag of NZ Gold Guitar awards. Her 2014 EP, Wanderer / Wonderer, also won her a legion of steadfast fans and she went on to win big at the 2016 Texas Sounds International Country Music Awards.
Kylie returned in 2017 with her EP, Bones. It showcased a fresh new sound that straddled her earlier country signature style with indie-folk and pop. Including the songs Here With Me and the title track, the EP was met with critical acclaim and peaked at #3 in the IMNZ charts and #8 in the NZ Album Charts.
“The EP has a gloss that belies the fact this is only her second release. ‘Bones’ shows Price to be an artist not afraid to change her established repertoire and push her own boundaries” – NZ Musician
Now Kylie is poised to make another splash with a new bunch of songs, which push further into the pop realm. But what remains the same is her ability to tap into themes and a sound that resonates deeply with her audience.
