“Dream Chaser”, the debut EP from emerging country music artist Kylie Ryan is a mix of cleverly crafted song lyrics, a generous helping of infectious melodies, blended with lavish amounts of rock, pop and rockabilly influences coupled with her own unique style.
Born in the northern NSW town of Inverell and living in Wagga Wagga and Chiang Mai, Thailand before settling in Sydney, it’s quite literally been a long, winding road in the journey for the songstress who counts Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert and Shania Twain as some of her biggest influences. Always a writer, be it stories, poems or songs, the self-confessed late starter in the industry, credits music as helping her through some of the tumultuous times in her life.
Becoming a mother at an early age put a hold on the singer/songwriter’s dreams and she believed the possibility of a future in music had perhaps passed her by. A career crossroads coupled with the urging of her husband led Kylie to rethink this decision and she decided it was high time she chased after her long-held dream.
“Dream Chaser” is a catchy blend of traditional and modern country, opening with the first single, ‘Got Me In’, a positive, upbeat pop infused track, before moving into the powerful, rock driven anthemic ‘Slow Me Down’, which was nominated for a 2017 ASA song-writing award. ‘That’s Our Love Song’ is a rockabilly-blues peppered love song. Kylie changes pace and offers us a personal insight into her life with the deeply moving and emotional, “In Spite of You”; the EP closes with “Everytime” a fun, fast paced party song co‑written with producer Stewart Peters of Blue Mountains based Soundshed Music Productions.
