Kylie Auldist’s Still Life

The Bamboos have started a very welcomed trend. Younger bands are beginning to stray away from the typical four-piece garage band format and form larger groups featuring tubas, saxophones and a bit of soul rather than teenage angst. Although still very tightly knit for such a big band, members of cult favourite The Bamboos have been straying away themselves, and very successfully doing their own thing.

Lead singer Kylie Auldist has finished her third solo album Still Life and just returned from playing to large audiences in Europe, the US and Japan. In one jam-packed theatre in Paris two uber-French audience members were in a sea of dancers but refused to budge. “I told them in no uncertain terms that if they weren’t going to dance they should get out of the way,” says Kylie firmly. “They looked a bit shocked but the crowd cheered and moved them out of the way!”

On a recent Saturday Kylie performed with former Bamboo Danny Farrugia, Lance Ferguson  on guitar, and two regulars in her band Mick Meagher on bass and Damon Grant on sax. In Bamboo spirit the band doesn’t stop there. Ari Farrar was on trumpet and Luke Saunders on keys.

These guys weave in and out of playing in her accompanying band, The Bamboos and side project Cooking on 3 Burners. Lance is gearing up for a new Bamboos album and although just returned from touring, Kylie has already begun to think about her next project.

Although seemingly spreading themselves thin, these local musos give the same energy and soul to everything they produce.

Kylie’s solo album Still Life is available now to purchase through her website, iTunes and Amazon.
