Special Feature: Aussie singer/songwriter Barry Southgate

I was recently contacted by Barry Southgate, an Aussie singer and songwriter. I learned more about his background from his website and also listened to some of his wonderful songs.

About the Artist:

As an artist, Barry joined Diafrix in opening for UK's Tinie Tempah, which led to him traveling the country with R&B superstar, Brian McKnight, as the opening act for his Australia tour. That was soon followed by supports for other US artists, Eric Benet, Joe and wrapping the year as opening act for K-Ci & JoJo on their Australia/New Zealand tour.

He also released an EP, Epitome, won Radar Radio's Unsigned Find competition and was a NA2R finalist. As a songwriter, Barry has been working with several artists, including Stan Walker, on his new album, Let The Music Play.

Bring Change Somewhere.

It’s an imperative known as the BCS Movement, a motto and a way of life. But before being embraced as such by thousands of supporters, it was a personal mission (and the initials) of its creator — singer/songwriter Barry Southgate.

It’s a concept that he pursues relentlessly through his music. And with the upcoming release of his debut solo project, Epitome, Southgate is eager to see it in action.

For Southgate, music has been an obvious life course since childhood. Having grown up around music (his father and two younger brothers all play guitar and sing, while his mother recorded a gospel album with her church choir years ago), he has always been driven by a passion for touching lives through the stories that are already alive in the melodies he hears. But his journey has been anything but ordinary and predictable.
