13/21 FEATURED ARTIST – MYLEE AND THE MILKSHAKES

13 MYLEE AND THE MILKSHAKES

Artist: MYLEE AND THE MILKSHAKES
City: Sydney, NSW
Style: Garage folk pop
Members: Mylee, Ozzie, Ray, Tristan, Kathryn, Cowboy

MYLEE GRACE is Australia’s future music royalty in the making! Apologies in advance but we have special powers and we see into the Zeitgeist and so it’s due time that everyone else caught up.

Mylee is a humble (we sometimes think too humble) music maker, mum and lover of the beach who comes from a talented family of music loving gypsies and her whole reason for being on this earth is to bless us all with her ability to make sweet music.

So yeah Mylee is one talented mamma and there have been way too many occasions where we have seen this fact proven over and over again. Mylee Grace has a way with words that seem to blend effortlessly into songs and together with the sound of her gifted voice (we’re talkin next level), people generally walk away from her shows either really happy or as better human beings.

Her live band includes a stream of talented friends; her partner in crime Ozzie on bass (Goons of Doom), Tristan on lead guitar and Kathryn on keys and cello. Ray on drums (Fait Accompli/Goons of Doom) and Cowboy (Goons of Doom) pops in on drum duties depending on everyone’s busy schedules. On top of that there’s always a handful of friends willing to bombard the stage and sing back ups or play percussion. Mylee’s music is just addictive and friends and strangers alike just want to share in the experience. It’s a rare thing but Mylee has a bizarre mother goose effect on people. haha!

Over the last year Mylee has been on tour up and down the East Coast, in the USA and even Bali in support of her debut ep BABY TALK. She recently headlined our LA FEMME show following a trip to Byron Bay to lay down some new tracks with producer Pauly B, Ozzie and friends, now a new recording is ready to be released out there to the world.

This baby comes out in early 2013 and all we can see are good times ahead for the Mylee Grace train.

MEDIA RELEASE: THE FREE PUSSY RIOT PARTY COMES TO BYRON BAY

Politics seems to be the current language of choice for many creative groups lately. Sydney’s My Sydney Riot have been getting behind a lot of causes to date and very recently they have been engaged with the Free Pussy Riot worldwide movement. After releasing a 20 track music compilation, a drum event in Taylor Square and a packed out event at Flinders Hotel in Sydney a few weeks back, My Sydney Riot decided to bring the Free Pussy Riot party to the Great Northern, Byron Bay, one of the most exciting live venues in Australia.

On Saturday 6th October a special lineup of independent bands will come together for one night only; Fait Accompli (Syd), Pirates Alive (Gold Coast), Mylee and the Milkshakes (Syd), Bec and Ben (Syd) and locals The Deers.

Also featuring on the night will be the official debut screening of a short film by local Byron Bay label Tallow Gallery starring talented young up and coming surfer, Cloudy Rhodes. The film titled ‘Journey’ (preview above) sees Cloudy traverse through some epic landscapes from South Africa to Mozambique and Swaziland. This film ties in with the important message that women and all humans alike have every right to get out there and share their stories with the world, a right of passage which unfortunately still remains a rare concept in many societies, even in these modern times. This film is not to be missed.

So bring along your friends, dress colourful or bring a colourful balaclava and a smile and help us celebrate our right to freedom of speech, a right which wasn’t afforded to the three members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot, Yekaterina Samutsevich, Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova who are currently serving two years jail for speaking our against their government.

Come out and dance Byron! FREE PUSSY RIOT!

Our goal is to inspire friends to speak out using creativity as a positive force to create change through music and art.
