Lynda Barnes

The Journey

from the The Journey album.

Come on The Journey with APRA award-winning songwriter LYNDA BARNES as she shares her family history in the title track of her debut album. This true account tells the story of Lynda’s Great-Great-Grandfather who died in a mining accident in the late 1880’s, leaving behind his pregnant wife and five children. Amazingly, when his body was recovered, he had only a single mark on him, in the shape of a star on his forehead. When his sixth child, a daughter, was born a few months later, she also carried an identical star-shaped mark on her forehead! Lynda is an evocative storyteller and this album chronicles her own life experience, through 12 songs which will resonate with people everywhere. Produced by SIMON JOHNSON at Hillbilly Hut Studios, The Journey utilises the talents of local musicians GLEN HANNAH and MIKE CARR, along with DAVE RISTRIM and TIM CROUCH from the USA. Let the musical imagery of this work take you on “The Journey”.
