NEW MUSIC: Marc Vedo ft. Kylie Auldist ‘Ride Of Your Life’


Award-winning singer/songwriter Kylie Auldist is cementing her name on the world stage as Australia’s go-to girl for soul anthems.

Following on from last year’s successful fourth solo album Family Tree, Kylie is back in the booth and lending her titanic vocals and co-writing prowess to ‘Ride Of Your Life’ for UK house DJ/producer Marc Vedo.

Kylie’s echoey voice soars over a strong summery beat, making the track a must-have on any party playlist – from the beach to the dance floor. Reverb heavy and dripping in Miami pool party vibes, Vedo’s single perfectly utilises Kylie’s modern soul style.

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: RJ Thompson


theaussieword.com catches up with RJ Thompson.

Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music?
Going way way back my parents bought me a toy drum kit when I wasexclusive-interview-with-rj-thompson-01 only about 4 or 5. So my early years were spent learning how to annoy the neighbours! I was well into my teens before I picked up a guitar and started writing music.

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music?

Motivation always boils down to wanting to do the best for my family… my wife and little boy. As cheesy as it sounds everything I do is for them. In terms of musical influences, the musicians I work with influence me greatly. They are all phenomenal musicians and bring out the best in my writing.

What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist?
My one and only goal is to write, record and release music that means something to me and that hopefully resonates with people. If that takes me to big or small crowds, I don’t mind. I want to be able to look back at my musical life down the line with pride knowing that everything came from the heart, and hopefully meant something to people.
