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!

FAT BABY RULES

We would like bands and promoters to be able to come to us with a full line up of at least 3 bands.  If you need help let Volkan Eryaman know and he can contact other bands. Below is some information that provides you with an incentive to set up full line ups on your own.

Cover charge at our shows are normally $7 but this is really up to you.  We take the first $70 made at the door per band/1 hour set.  If you book at least 3 bands altogether then we will lower this to $50 per set.  You keep all other profits.  We ask that you don’t put more then 1 out of town band on the bill unless you are absolutely confident that they can help bring in a draw.  We also ask that each band be able to bring in at least 10 people.  If this might be a problem let Volkan Eryaman  know in advance so maybe you can work something out.

We also want to accommodate out of town bands as much as possible so all out of town bands that can fill up a bill with other LOCAL NYC bands will have their overhead cost waived and can keep 100% of their door sales. Its not hard to find other NYC bands, you just have to do some research.  You can even go to the fat baby myspace and search through the bands that are friends with us, and then search their friends as well.  This is a great way to easily fill up a bill.  Find one band you like and ask other bands on their top friends list if they would like to join.  Please DON’T send any requests to our MySpace page because we don’t check those messages.
