Adelaide Singer/Songwriter Kylie Brice sounds like Missy Higgins meets Clare Bowditch.
Having won a local song writing competition and recording time, she recently released her debut single “Journey to Myself” to a near capacity crowd at The Bluebee Room, Adelaide.
“…Kylie Brice is a very good performer and the journey to herself has a fine soundtrack.” – BSide / Music SA
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.
In her early 20’s Kylie was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and depression. A vital part of her ‘recovery’ was song writing.
“I had to relearn all of my thought habits, and was overwhelmed by it all – so I would write songs late at night, when I couldn’t sleep because my head was full of anxious thoughts and I didn’t know what else to do with them! I didn’t often share these songs, as I purely wrote them for my own therapy.”
Kylie soon married and started a family. A few years into motherhood, Kylie began feeling burnt out and empty.
“I struggled because I am a dedicated mum, and I love being a mum – but I felt I had lost myself and didn’t know what was missing. I ended up writing a song to try and figure it all out (“Recharge”) – and realised that what was missing was my music.”
Now embracing what is unique about her, Kylie is on a mission to share her message of hope through music and receiving a warm welcome from listeners, young and old.
“Kylie has the ability to silence a room with her stage presence, inviting her audience to take notice.” – This is our Sound, WOWfm
Kylie has an important message to share with others – she is passionate about helping people to know they are unique and valuable – and they can overcome their own obstacles and still have enough overflowing for others.
Kylie will be launching her debut EP “Broken and Beautiful” February 26th at the Salisbury Institute during the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
