Lyn, Karen and Kate blend their unique voices with powerful harmonies to create something spectacular indeed.
"I was midway through a conversation backstage when the hairs suddenly stood up on the back of my neck!"back of my neck!"
The words came from Australia's leading country music broadcaster Nick Erby during the 1998 Tamworth Country Music Festival and the conversation breaker was the incredible talent of Lyn Bowtell performing 'A Broken Wing', one of those magical musical experiences that stops and audience in its tracks.

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.
Her recording success continued through 1997 with the release of her two Star Maker singles 'The One You Love' gained Lyn her second Top10 position and a finalist berth in the New Talent category of the 1998 Country Music Awards of Australia. The poignant ballad 'Searching For Jane' written by Lyn and co-writing partner Margie Mason provided a perfect follow-up and won the New Songwriter section at the Tamworth Songwriters Awards during the 1998 Tamworth Festival, as well the Female Vocal section of the 1998 Victorian Country Music Awards.

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.
Performing under the moniker of "Elle Bee", Lyn combines her wonderful country music talents with a huge and varied covers repertoire to bring pub, club and function audiences a truly special experience. Also available in duo format with lead guitarist.
