Kylie Hogan

Award winning country with heartfelt soul

Kylie listened to an eclectic mix of music growing up.  She taught herself to play guitar, and started to write songs.  Her first song “County Kind of Girl” was picked up and recorded for the soundtrack of Troy Dann’s Outback Adventures television series.

Kylie started appearing on some TV talent quests and from there was asked to start performing with the band “Silver Wings”  She then went on to be one half of the Rock duo “Kiss This” and also performed in the Rock/Pop group “Omni Pop”   Kylie is a versatile performer and was always a devout fan of Patsy Cline of whom she unconsciously leans toward vocally. 

At many rock and pop gigs that she was doing in her early years she was regularly asked “Can you do any Patsy Cline songs?  You have a voice that could sing Patsy Cline”

About Kylie

Kylie moved around a lot as a child, but spent many years living in the Narrabri - Bellata area of NSW raising her daughter as a single mother, working full time, while promoting herself as a Country Music Artist.  These days she resides on property in Mount Tarampa QLD with her husband.  She spends a lot of time training and competing with her endurance horses, and currently Kylie is working on her next album project which will be a Patsy Cline tribute.

When asked to describe herself, Kylie says she is not a musician pretending to be Country.  She is a country girl who pretends to be a musician.  The honesty in her as person reflects in the honesty you hear in the vocals when she sings.
