Totally Biased Fan Review: Kylie Adams-Collier – Little Stone
by Kaz Johnson 7.12.17
At Hats Off in July of 2016, I met a Facebook friend and bought her album at the Post Office Hotel. I kept running into her over the few days of Tamworth’s mid year festival and then I went home and reviewed her album. We chatted on Facebook a fair bit after that, so I must have said something right in the review. I mentioned something like, I am just about to book my train to Tamworth for January (2017) in a post on Facebook and she said, I’ll give you a lift. Kylie and I had one Heck of a trip to Tamworth from Hornsby. We had a whole stash of cds to play but we chatted the whole way and Kylie gave me an in car concert – we never got to hear any of the cds! Some of the songs that are on this album had their first airing on that car trip.
Kylie is one of those artists who does a multitude of things….including a radio show every Sunday and a lot of appearances at just about every festival on the East Coast of Australia. Kylie helps out a lot of people. She has made me smile on more than one occasion when it was the last thing that I felt like doing.
Kylie and a bunch of very experienced and talented musicians have put this album together in a very different style to many artists these days. Kylie has a very traditional country music style but with fresh songs and new stories. Every song is very Australian. It mentions an Aussie town or two, an Aussie tradition, a piece of Aussie history, an Aussie character in each song, or at least one or two of the above elements. I am not sure whether there is another artist in Australia who sounds quite like Kylie, she has a very unique style and sound. I guess it is a fusion between folk, hillbilly and bluegrass at times.
Kylie is quite the character. If you have ever listened to her radio show, read her facebook posts of travelled with her to Tamworth, you will know what I mean. Some of her songs have that tongue in cheek, fun approach but many tackle sensitive and important subjects. She is quite the storyteller too and that comes across in her songs which all tell us a tale.
The first rule of writing is “Write about what you know”. Kylie certainly does that with her songwriting, with every song clearly a piece of her heart and mind.
Overseas listeners may get lost with some of the references but they will also learn a thing or two about Australia and Australians. I know how hard Kylie worked to put this album together. The hard work paid off.

Kylie's 30 year music history can be found under " History" on this website.
The Rabaul and Montevideo Maru 75th Anniversary tour guide , Albert Koni used kylie's camera for her " Little Stone" album photo shoot, overlooking Rabaul. It is surrounded by volcanoes and the frangipani's are magnificent. Kylie's family has a long history in Rabaul.
She was invited to perform her song "Montevideo Maru 1942" at the Rabaul & Montevideo Maru 75th Anniversary Service in Rabaul, Papua New Guinea and The Australian War Memorial, Canberra this year. Kylie would like to thank the Papua New Guinea Association of Australia for opening her eyes to her family history. Rabaul was an Australian mandated territory and the first line of defence when the Japanese invaded on the 23rd January 1942, just a few weeks after Pearl Harbour.
The population consisted of Papua New Guineans, Australians and chinese , all greatly affected by the events which followed. 1053 soldiers and civilians, people from the administration, private enterprise, planters, traders and missionaries surrended , becoming prisoners of war. They were embarked on the Montevideo Maru on the 22nd June 1942. the Ship was torpedoed on the 1st July 1942 by an allied submarine with the loss of all allied prisoners on board. This remains Australia's greatest maritime tragedy in its history. Kylie's grandfather Harry Adams ran plantations in Papua New Guinea and was one of the POW casualties who drowned that day. Visiting Papua New Guinea and learning more about Kylie's family history was emotionally overwhelming.
Kylie's "Montevideo Maru 1942" song will be released in June 2018 and Key 2 artist promotions will be doing the publicity for her Country Radio Single release.

SWEET DREAMS 'TIL MORNING REVIEWS:
Had heard of this lady before meeting and listening to her music at Clarence Valley Country Muster in October. She enjoys her music and being on stage, undertaking child and dog minding to help pay for her recordings and travel.
KYLIE ADAMS-COLLIER has released a twelve track CD titled SWEET DREAMS 'TIL MORNING which includes seven originals, including a finalist in the Tamworth Songwriters Awards for gospel song
which will be announced during the Festival in January, that song is WAITING FOR HEAVEN TO RAIN which is recorded as a duet with JUSTIN STANDLEY and is one of the stand out tracks. Some of the other great original tracks include SWEET DREAMS 'TIL MORNING I love the way KYLIE brings this song alive, GOODBYE DEAR TAMWORTH which is written from KYLIE's Tamworth adventures during the Festival and her
memories of her father in GOODNIGHT DEAR DAD GOODNIGHT. After selecting these tracks I must say that all the originals are well crafted songs and beautifully sung.
The covers are a varied selection of standards, show songs and a couple one written by HANK WILLIAMS and another by BUCK OWENS. In all a great CD produced by GARY BROWN. The easiest way to sum up this album would be to use KYLIE's song COME ON AND DANCE WITH ME as it will have your feet tapping and you bopping in your seat.
Drum Roll by Al Slade © 2017 Country All Over
From the moment the CD started I was blissfully transported back to my grandparent's verandah for a family singalong. Kylie has created an album that exudes warmth and sincerity. From the covers of classic hits such as Hank Williams I can't help it if I'm still in love with you and Don't fence me in by Cole Porter to her originals, Kylie successfully maintains the homely, comfortable sounds of yesteryear. The pedal steel playing of Tomi Graso and the sensitive guitar playing of Bob Howe, deserve a mention as they bring so much to the stylistic success of the CD.
For Her original track Waiting for heaven to rain, Kylie teams up with Justin Standley.
Kylie and Justin's voices blend very nicely together which helps emphasize the song's sense of longing.
Overall, Sweet Dreams til morning is an enjoyable album and to be honest, it was a shame to return from my nostalgic trip to real life when the CD finished."
Peter Christie Country Music Capitol News April 2016
This is an enjoyable album by Kylie who has written seven of the 12 songs she recorded.
Justin Standley joins Kylie on Waiting for heaven to rain, making it a standout song. Goodbye dear Tamworth is a story of being in Tamworth Country Music Festival that she seemed to really enjoy. Both the title song and When loved ones are near are great tracks and shows that she can write good songs. Produced and recorded by Sydney's own Gary Brown, who is well known for his traditional style of Music.
Lorraine Pfitzner review, The Balladeers Bulletin VOL 18 January 2017
This little pocket dynamo made us all exhausted just watching her energy and vitality on stage at Hats Off. With signature red flower in her hair, pure country voice and a mixture of folk and country flavour through her songs and stories,
you can’t help but feel for the songs that she sings and rejoice in her simple candour.
I can’t help it if I’m still in love with you – Hank Williams – Every fair dinkum country music singer does a Hank song somewhere in their career, or at the very least, they know one. A good choice, one of my favourites.
When loved ones are near – Kylie Adams-Collier – Kylie is not just a bundle of energy, she seems to me to be a little spiritual, probably the Bellingen coming out in her. This song says it all, really.
Crying Time – Buck Owens – Probably one of the most sung country songs ever, and one of the most respected songwriters in Buck Owens. Most folks that love country music can sing along to this one. The guitar work in this song usually sound like they are on the verge of crying too.
I wanna live on a farm: Kylie Adams-Collier – Don’t we all? A pure country voice singing a pure country song.
Don’t Fence Me In: Cole Porter/Robert Fletcher – An oldie but a goodie. I am sure when Cole Porter wrote songs he never thought that one of the most enduring would be a country song but most people know this one, even today. It is a good one for around the campfire.
Sweet dreams ‘til morning – Kylie Adams-Collier – The title song and one full of imagery. A touch of the Judith Durham on here.
Careless Love: Spencer Williams and Martha E Koenig – A lot of people have sung this, most memorably for me, Lena Horne and Fats Domino! So many different kinds of artists and it is a beauty.
Dream a Little Dream of Me: – Wilbur Schwandt and Fabian Andre – One of my fave singers of all time, Mama Cass made this her own. If there ever was a version to compete with it, it is this one.
Wonderful job, Kylie.
Come on and dance with me – Kylie Adams-Collier – This will go down well in old village halls and anywhere where they want to dance old time style. I can’t dance to save myself,
but I was tempted to do a twirl in my living room.
Waiting for heaven to rain – Kylie Adams-Collier –
The first strains of this song sounded like we were being transported to Mexico.
looked over my shoulder to check and see if there was a guy in a sombrero.
Justin Standley features on this song and does a great job.
Goodbye Dear Tamworth – Kylie Adams-Collier – People always have me at the title if they put Tamworth in it, being an old Tamworth native. Then if they throw in all of the familiar sights and sounds – including the sign mentioned in the song, they can’t go wrong.
Goodnight dear dad goodnight – Kylie Adams-Collier – This album is dedicated to Kylie’s Dad, so it is not a surprise when she does a song salute to him. Lovely song and a great way to wind things up.
The beauty of country music is that it is full of so many different styles. Kylie touches on a few on this album but basically it is country music in its most pure and simple form.
The musicians on this album enrich its simple beauty. Bob Howe, Allan Tomkins, Tomi Graso and Andrew Clermont to name a few. Produced by Gary Brown and mastered by one of my favourites, Herm Kovak, it is a nostalgic, peaceful, tender tribute.
