Kylie Auldist

KYLIE AULDIST is the soulful voice behind the 2016 worldwide hit ‘This Girl’ [Kungs vs Cookin’ on 3
Burners], she’s also the leading lady of Australian funk/soul stalwarts ‘the Bamboos’ and a celebrated
solo artist in her own right.

Described by The Music Magazine as “Melbourne’s high priestess of soul”, Kylie was born to sing – hailing
from the small farming town of Hay, New South Wales, Kylie was introduced to music at an early age and
recorded her first song at just six years old. From humble beginnings, Kylie has grown to become one of
Australia’s most respected, versatile and accomplished performers.

Relocating to Melbourne in the early 90’s she became a fixture on the Fitzroy funk scene before
becoming an in-demand backing vocalist for the likes of Renee Geyer and Jimmy Barnes. In 2006 she
joined forces with Australia’s premier funk outfit, the ARIA-nominated Bamboos, a relationship which
continues to this day and up until recently she was also the voice for Hammond trio Cookin on 3 Burners.

Not satisfied with being at the epicentre of Australia’s funk, soul and disco scene, she is also an
in-demand international session vocalist. She has sung on collaborations with Boy George’s long-time
producer Marc Vedo and had underground club hits with UK artists Flevans & Aldo Vanucci.

Kylie is a remarkable artist whose musical journey continues to expand and blossom the longer it
