'Light as a Feather' track descriptions.


Memories of My Old Town.

Music & lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier.

‘Memories of My Old Town’ reminisces about the street where Kylie grew up.

Giant fig trees still line Baker Street, Fernmount, which overlooks the Bellinger River. Fernmount is located a few kilometers east of Bellingen in Northern NSW and has one of the best views in the Bellinger Valley. Kylie warmly describes her childhood of digging up old bottles, buying lollies at the old Post Office, watching the cows cross the river for milking and catching the old double decker bus to school.



In The Valley.

Music & Lyrics by kylie Adams-Collier.

Kylie’s joyful sing- along song celebrates the promised land of her hometown valley with its delightfully historical celebrations of the Azalea Festival interwoven with a dark history of poisonous oleander tea (mother’s little helper), unsolved murders (the giant fig tree in the lane holds a secret in the town), the old willow trees (eradicated along the riverbank) and the aboriginal massacres in the 1800’s (old man dreaming crying tears when the storms come around).



To Fill the Pail.

Music & lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier.

This enchanting song is a heartfelt tribute to an old dairy farmer’s early morning milking routine, with her poetic lyrics describing a winter’s morning on the farm. ‘Muddy boots by the door and a faithful dog in a patter of paws,

Budding jasmine on the old gate standing guard, the farmer walks the trail to the old dairy yard.’



Lavender Bridge.

Music & lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier.

‘Lavender Bridge’ paints a picture of grief that is love without a home.

Kylie mourned her mother as she stood on Lavenders Bridge one morning.

As she looked at a cloud gently sitting on the mountains, swallows flying over and under the bridge and the Bellinger River gently flowing through the valley, she realised that her mother’s spirit was everywhere.



The Willow Weeps For Me.

Lyrics by John Seers.

Music by Kylie Adams-Collier.

'The Willow Weeps for Me' is a pretty bluegrass song with sweet harmonies, co -written with much celebrated lyricist and bush poet John Seers. John's lyrics are beautifully descriptive of love lost, interwoven with the Australian birds and bush. Kylie composed the music in this wonderful song writing collaboration. Willows also resonate deeply with Kylie having grown up with giant willows by the Bellinger River.



Mamma’s Table.

Music & lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier.

Kylie hired a three-tonne truck and drove a 1000km round trip to Bellingen from Sydney to collect her late mother’s table and other belongings. Always up for an adventure, Kylie wrote this catchy country blues song while she was driving along the highway. Her ‘mamma’s table’ now holds pride of place in Kylie’s home and has had many songs written on it with many more to come.



Fearless Like a Magpie.

Music & lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier.

Kylie’s lyrics ‘You have no fear when you’re a kid’ resonates throughout this gorgeous acoustic song. She shares her childhood stories of swimming with jelly fish, climbing mulberry trees and riding the river rapids on a lilo to wallflower moments, being starry eyed and chasing horizons as an adult. An enlightening song to encourage us all to follow our dreams, this track is a favourite for many.



True Love.

Lyrics by Lola Brinton.

Music by Kylie Adams-Collier.

Co-written with much celebrated songwriter Lola Brinton, ‘True love’ explores relationships past, present and going forward. ‘True love is a lesson in loving, each one as special as the first, it entices us to try again, our hearts have a loving thirst…’



On a Summer’s Night.

Music & lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier.

Imagine sleeping on veranda on a hot summer’s night and listening to a storm roll in from the ocean. ‘On a Summer’s Night’ is a hauntingly beautiful song capturing a special part of Kylie’s youth and gently paints life and death in the rise and fall of breath.



Light as a Feather.

Music & lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier.

This heartfelt bluegrass /gospel explores forgiveness on a universal level.

Something we all need to hear and practice regularly – forgiveness makes you light as a feather. Counting your blessings and being grateful in life leads to a much happier way of being.



If You Could Only Find the Time.

Music & lyrics by Kylie Adams-Collier.

‘The sewing machine sits in the dark, quiet in the cupboard, another bright spark…’We all have good intentions and ideas when it comes to creative hobbies if we could only find the time to do them.
