While in Melbourne, Kylie hooked up with kings of funk The Bamboos and provided stunning guest vocals on their acclaimed album, “Rawville” for Tru Thoughts. The Bamboos and Kylie Auldist toured Australia and beyond, landing on the fair shores of Brighton, UK, in 2007, where Tru Thoughts snapped Kylie up after being bowled over by her spectacular and charismatic performance. Kylie signed to Tru Thoughts for multiple albums, and her debut single “Community Service Announcement” was released on 28th April 2008, followed by the album, “Just Say”, on 26th May. A heady mix of Kylie’s distinctive and soulful vocals and the flawless, funk-fuelled production of Bamboos’ main-man Lance Ferguson, “Just Say” created a buzz immediately and was dubbed “the sound of the summer” by many.
In the UK Mark Lamarr (BBC Radio 2) declared it “one of the best albums of the year”. Further afield, tracks from the album have gained national radio playlisting in France and Kylie’s native Australia. Kylie Auldist and The Bamboos will be embarking on a UK and European tour in October-November 2008 (dates tbc).
