REVIEW: Kylie Edmond - Weak
Kylie Edmond – Weak
2007 Kylie Edmond
Kylie Edmond came to New York City in 2002 on a wing and a prayer to meet her muse. Now it’s your turn. Dancing down the pop alley crafted by artists such as Michelle Branch, Maren Ord and Paula Cole, Kylie Edmond is writing songs you will hear, must hear, and have to hear.
Weak is a three track EP that serves as ample introduction to a talented singer/songwriter. Working with New York City guitarists/producer Griffin, Ms. Edmond has crafted a little bit of pop/rock magic. All three songs are radio ready. “Weak” and “Endless Days” could easily be pop/rock radio staples. “Oh No No” is a poignant song about domestic violence that could become anthemic for a generation of survivors.
Kylie Edmond provides the lyrics and melodies, while master-musician Griffin provides the musical scores to envelope her words and melodies. This partnership should be very fruitful. In a perfect world you’d hear Ms. Edmond on your radio twice an hour. In today’s music market it’s anyone’s guess how things will turn out, but Kylie Edmond very much deserves your attention.
