Stunning, heartfelt vocals, beautifully-crafted songs and world-class performances, there are few female voices in Australia to rival the class and style of Lyn Bowtell. An innovative songwriter, Lyn defies easy classification with influences reaching from pure country to blues, jazz and pop, Lyn has her own distinctive voice and musical identity.
Lyn’s musical journey began in the Country Music Clubs of the Darling Downs and has led her to stages all over Australia and around the world. Lyn first came to prominence as songwriter and singer for multi-award- winning country pop trio Bella. Since then she has released critically acclaimed albums ‘Secret Songs’ in 2012, ‘Heart Of Sorrow’ in 2014 and EP ‘Calling You in 2017’, all brimming with the singer’s soulful vocals, highlighting the sublime voice that turned heads and four red chairs on national television in Channel Nine’s Season 6 of The Voice Australia.
Lyn Bowtell’s latest Album ‘Wiser’, produced by Shane Nicholson, will be released in May 2022.
Lyn is a nine -time Golden Guitar winner, Toyota Star Maker winner, MO award winner, and Artistic Director of the CMAA Academy of Country Music.
“She’s known for having an extraordinarily rare voice” – CLARE BOWDITCH
Shortlisted for the Americana Music Prize in 2018, Kelly Brouhaha’s brand of americana soul is as real as it gets. The South Australian songwriter & multi-instrumentalist spends most of the year around a campfire, travelling in her 1992 Toyota Hiace Van called “Pamela Vanderson”.
Her debut self titled album tells the story after leaving her marriage and mortgage behind in the pursuit of happiness. The single of the same name, co-written with Aleyce Simmonds is a big, ballsy, freedom-esque blues which captures the heart of the Australian landscape and the lure of off-grid living.
Choosing to pursue the road less travelled after learning of her father’s althzeimers diagnosis – this album captures heartbreak and grief in a way that leaves you breathless. A diverse first offering from an artist you absolutely need to hear.
You cannot put her unique style into a box.
From big blues, to soulful country, it is real and raw and vulnerable.
