Biography

Funky, Dynamic, Soulful are just a few words that describe Lyndal Barry and The Apollos. They perform authentic sounding original tracks and consistently cover the great funk and soul artist from the 60’s till today. Their live show consists of a six piece band including horn section and is slick, energetic and professional.

Born and raised in Geelong, Victoria Lyndal was introduced to soul through Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College’s internationally recognized band The Sweethearts. As a 17 year old, Lyndal graced the stages some of Australia and Europe’s world renowned festivals such as Poretta Soul Festival in Italy and Australia’s Port Fairy Folk Festival.

Lyndal followed on doing some down and dirty coast to coast touring as part of a Mo’town tribute girl group. Performances ranged from gritty country pubs to flash city clubs and the shows were energized with non-stop dance moves from the three singers. A love of touring was established but so was the desire to write and arrange music that Lyndal could truly call her own.

It was here that she met co-producer/song writer Stuart Prendergast. The pair shared a deep love of 60’s and 70’s funk and soul plus some modern performers that share the same creditability. Wanting to capture that sound the pair set about forming a band that could play funk the way funk was meant to be played.

When recording, Lyndal and Stuart refused to walk the path of digital tracking and sound manipulation. Instead they opted for an analogue reel to reel tape machine, zero track editing and minimal overdubbing. What you hear on a Lyndal Barry and The Apollos recording is just what you get live on stage.

With the release of their debut single “(Now I’m) Giving It Back”(OBR-1001) in early December on Off Break Records, Lyndal Barry and The Apollo is a must see live show and a must own record.
