About Kylie Edmond

Being an Aussie girl, now living and writing in the fabulously crazy NYC, I look to the sun, the beach and all things glorious for inspiration. Originally from sunny Perth, Western Australia, I came to NYC in search of inspiration and adventure. New York has since become my home and my muse.

While I had been writing on and off over the years, it wasn’t until a trip to London that I decided to make things happen. Sitting in a hotel room, watching the London rain, I decided it was time to follow my heart and pursue my passions.

So, I moved to NYC and had a few cultural differences to deal with like using the words “flip flop” instead of “thong”, people thinking I’m from Sweden or Texas (seriously), and trying to give it a red hot go in one of the coolest, but toughest markets in the world. NYC is definitely a unique city. And it’s affected me as a songwriter and human in so many ways.

I was signed to music publishing company Missing Link Music in January 2009 and am in the studio recording new songs with my co-writer Griffin. I recently performed for the SESAC Writers on the Storm showcase for up and coming talent and was featured as a Spotlight Member with the Songwriters Guild of America. I’ve played in famous NYC venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, Baggot Inn, The Bitter End, Caffe Vivaldi, The Sidewalk Cafe, Banjo Jim’s, Parkside Lounge and Waltz-Astoria.

But at the end of the day, you can take a girl from Australia, but you can’t take Australia out of the girl. And you can give an Aussie a flip flop, but it’s still a thong. So, welcome to my music. These songs remind me of endless summer days back in Australia, the beach and sunshine. I hope you enjoy them!

You Got Served: Beat The World Original Soundtrack – Releasing June 14th

http://www.beattheworldsoundtrack.com/

About:

More than just another film soundtrack, Beat the World is the coming together of some of the world’s most prominent conscious Hip Hop artists as part of a vision to build new social paradigms through music and film.

When Somalian born new-school rapper and World Cup ambassador K’NAAN joined forces with one of Hip Hop’s most respected founding fathers, KRS-One, to record the film’s title track “Hip Hop Nation”, they were on a mission: to represent the positive voice and power of the world’s largest music-based cultural movement – Hip Hop.  In addition to creating an original voice for Beat the World, they created an anthem for the evolution of the global Hip Hop movement.

Soundtrack Samplerhttp://soundcloud.com/hiphopconnect/sets/beat-the-world-soundtrack-1

“Hip Hop Nation” both drives the action of the film and emphasizes a shared underlying theme: we are all equal and united under one global movement, using music, dance and creativity to breakdown borders and stereotypes that may otherwise divide us.

Hip Hop Nation – KRS-One feat. K’NAAN and Lina Watch Here:

Other notable collaborations on the soundtrack include the heroic “Infinite Love,” featuring top British rapper Sway together with the renowned lyrical wordsmith Talib Kweli, and the multi-lingual world-beat dance track “Must Be the Music” performed by Les Nubians (France), Lina (US) and MV Bill (Brazil).

Digital review copies are available at your request as well as producer Frank Fitzpatrick is open to interviews and Q&A’s about bringing together such notable group of artists to create this project.

Artist Profile: MillyWarbucks

Posted on Updated on


MillyWarbucks’s Bio:

Hip-hop culture is in Brooklyn native Milly Warbucks’ blood. The 29-year-old emcee began his career at the age of nine when he was featured on a mixtape created by his older family members. Over the years Milly sharpened his skills by engaging in local cyphers and freestyle competitions throughout the East New York—introducing his skills and unique name to the borough.

The moniker, Milly Warbucks is actually a derivative of a nickname given to him by his grandparents. “When I was younger I always talked about millions, so that name stuck.” He later added Warbucks (not to be confused with “Daddy Warbucks”) to his stage name to symbolize what he stands for. “The War part is because I’m always prepared and bucks is for the financial level I will achieve through music,” says Milly.

Unfortunately, with one foot in the industry—rapping and working as a promoter—and one foot in the street Milly eventually got caught up and was sentenced to four years in jail. Though he was incarcerated it did not stop his love of music or his hunger for success. Once he was released he attacked the NYC hip-hop scene with equal skill and aggression.

The diverse emcee/songwriter’s first post incarceration project was the critically acclaimed This is How it Shoulda Been Done mixtape. The release featured Milly interpreting various popular songs and putting his own spin on them. The project was put together so well that many fans assumed the songs were official remixes, which is a testament to Milly’s talent.

In 2009 Milly made a splash nationally with the single “Chea Chea” featuring Princess of Crime Mobb. The single got spins on various stations and several hits on influential blogs and websites. Later that year he also recorded a song and video for “Everything I Need” with R&B singer Qui—who is also the daughter of NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice.

Milly is currently working on what he says is the first project that fully represents him. The currently untitled project will feature production from Joshua Mirk (Jay-Z, Ciara, Anthony Hamilton). Milly hopes to give listeners all facets of his life as an artist and a person with the upcoming release.

With wisdom and experience under his belt and undeniable talent, there is no stopping Milly Warbucks from realizing his dream and letting the world hear the next big thing out of Brooklyn.
