The simple statement actually came as no real surprise because it has always been Lyn Bowtell's destiny to be a star in Australian Country Music. The release of her debut album 'Headed South' with her band Southern Steel in 1996 drew instant radio attention and her win in the prestigious 1997 Toyota Star Maker Quest provided the impetus for the title track to become a Top10 hit on the country charts.
Suddenly the young lady with the superb voice was firmly on centre stage and the full range of her talents began to emerge. The voice is the focal point of her performance, but it's all the other factors that make up the star package. On stage she radiates a warmth and charisma that immediately establishes a rapport with an audience and has an amazing energy that transposes throughout her songs. Lyn is not just a singer, she's an interpreter and whether a particular song is one from her own prolific original folio or a cover, there is that indefinable Lyn Bowtell stamp that emerges.
During the last eighteen months, Lyn has established herself as a major attraction at festivals like Tamworth, Mildura and the Gympie Muster, as well as club venues throughout Eastern Australia. They have even added an international flavour with a number of highly successful festival appearances in the United Kingdom and China.
Underlying all these impressive achievements is that wonderful gift that sets Lyn Bowtell apart - the gift of song. And the absolute proof of her great talent, her signing to the new ACMEC label and the release at the Tamworth 2000 Country Music Festival of her new album 'Hearts In The Country'. This is the definitive Lyn Bowtell - the superb songwriting, the awesome voice, excellent musicianship from Southern Steel and some eminent musical guests - it's the album that country music fans have been waiting for.
