Kylie Gale is a singer-songwriter from Caves Beach, NSW, who released her debut single, ‘Pushback’, last year. It was recorded by Simon Johnson from Hillbilly Hut, and Johnson was also at the helm of Gale’s new song, ‘Fading to Grey’, as well as taking bass and backing vocal duties; the track also features Golden Guitar and ARIA winner Shane Nicholson on guitars, with Rod Motbey on electric guitar, Brad Bergen on drums and Kristy James on backing vocals.
‘Fading to Grey’ is, says Gale, ‘a love story song about past love and it’s how I imagine it would happen if you ran into someone you were in love with in the past. It’s a song about how you’ve moved on and gone your own ways.’
As with ‘Pushback’, Gale explores strong emotions and experiences that leave a mark. But there’s something about her strong, warm voice that tells the listener that everything is going to be all right, and she says that ‘Fading to Grey’ is ‘also an empowering song to know that’s a feeling you’ve had but you’ve moved on and found new love.’
The single debuted at number 5 on the iTunes Country chart, and Gale is planning to record an EP later this year, at Hillbilly Hut.
