Oh No No by Kylie Edmond is the seventeenth song to be featured on my Blog as part of my mission to provide you with inspiration through songs that have been performed by musicians on Alive with Clive over the past couple of years.
Kylie performed Oh No No during her first interview on Alive with Clive on November 7, 2008.
As mentioned in her Bio on her MySpace page, www.myspace.com/kylieedmond:
Kylie is originally from sunny Perth in Western Australia. Although she had been writing songs on and off over the years, it wasn’t until a trip to London a few years ago that she decided to make things happen. Sitting in a hotel room watching the London rain, she decided it was time to follow her heart and pursue her passions. So she moved to New York City in search of inspiration and adventure.
In recent months, at established music venues in and outside New York City, Kylie has been participating in a popular series of concerts she created called “Girls Rock The Night!” alongside such other emerging female musicians who have been on Alive with Clive as Jessica Labus, Athena Reich, Melissa Wrolstad, Dani Tersini, Cassandra Kubinski and Kelsey Rauber — and one lucky guy, Robert Daniels, who has also been on Alive with Clive.
Kylie was signed to music publishing company, Missing Link Music, in January 2009 and has been spending time in the studio recording new songs with her co-writer, Griffin. She recently performed for the SESAC Writers on the Storm showcase for up-and-coming talent and was featured as a Spotlight Member with the Songwriters Guild of America. She has played in famous New York City venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, Baggot Inn, The Bitter End, Caffe Vivaldi, The Sidewalk Cafe, Banjo Jim’s, Parkside Lounge and Waltz-Astoria.
Kylie is one of the most inspiring, energetic and entertaining emerging musicians to have been interviewed on Alive with Clive. At the start of her second interview on Alive with Clive recently, I described her as an I-D-E-A-L role model, with the word I-D-E-A-L representing an acronym for:
I – Inspiring
D – Dynamic
E – Exciting
A – Action-Oriented
L – Loving
In short, you can learn a lot about turning your passion into profit and multiplying your magnificence from Kylie Edmond. And it’s wonderful to see her blossoming as a musician too.
Kylie wrote Oh No No after a friend of hers told her that she was trapped in a relationship in which she was being subjected to violent abuse. Statistics reveal that a disturbingly high percentage of women are victims of domestic abuse in their relationships. The message of the song provides powerful words of encouragement to women to ignore the internal voice that causes them to justify staying in that kind of relationship so they can disentangle themselves from their living nightmare and start anew.
Here is one of the verses from Oh No No:
And leave your hell in the past
Better off alone
Alone at last
Take your pride
Leave everything else behind
Got wings to fly
You shine so bright
While the song is focused primarily to provide support for women who are in relationships in which they are being violently abused, the message can be applied by anyone who is being victimized by adverse circumstances over which they feel they don’t have any power or control.
