“She has one of the most amazing voices in this country, I love this beautiful woman and her talent” – Kasey Chambers“
“If anything, Bowtell is a little too good, as a singer she demands a response even when she is just singing a straight pop song, and when Bowtell is pulling you in deep her voice is like a tantalising quicksand“— Iman lababedi, Rock NYC Live and Recorded.
LYN BOWTELL first came to prominence as songwriter and singer for multi award winning Country Pop trio BELLA, since then she has released two critically acclaimed albums, ’SECRET SONGS‘ (WJO) in 2012, and ‘HEART OF
SORROW‘ (Maven/Sony) in 2014.
An innovative and creative songwriter Lyn defies musical constraint and easy classification, with influences reaching from pure Country to Blues, Jazz and Pop, Lyn has her own distinctive voice and musical identity.
Lyn’s new release ‘CALLING YOU’ marks a distinct departure in musical style from her roots in alternative/pop country, brimming with the singer’s soulful, striking vocals and connecting deeply with raw emotion, highlighting the sublime and powerful voice that turned heads and 4 red chairs on national television in Channel Nine’s THE VOICE AUSTRALIA‘ earlier this year.
Now the SIX TIME GOLDEN GUITAR WINNER is heading in a new musical direction, with a broader, larger audience ready to follow.
Bowtell explains, “I’m no longer willing to be confined in a ‘genre box’, I want to show a wider audience my full range as a singer and songwriter. I feel so connected to ‘Calling You’, the songs are bright, bold and exciting and I can’t wait to share them!”.
