Hunter Valley singer-songwriter Lyn Bowtel has released her new single, a stunningly beautiful cover of Sting‘s classic ‘Fields Of Gold‘ ahead of June shows with Gretta Ziller and Andrew Swift at The Acoustic Picnic, Sydney and a local show at Lizotte’s, Newcastle.

2017 was a huge year for Lyn Bowtell, beginning with Lyn collecting 3 Golden Guitar Awards and then turning all 4 judges chairs and joining Team George on The Voice. As the year came to a close, she joined Voice team-mate Hoseah Partsch on stage during the Newcastle Leg of Culture Clubs national tour.

Lyn Bowtel ‘Calling You’

Amid an already hectic schedule, Bowtell managed to make time to write and record her new release ‘CALLING YOU’ which was released late in 2017. This six-track EP marks a distinct departure in musical style from her roots in alternative/pop country brimming with the singer’s soulful, striking vocals and connecting deeply with raw emotion as only Bowtell can.

The 3rd single from the EP, Calling You, will be released on May 30. Lyn’s version of ‘Fields of Gold‘, which turned 4 chairs at the Voice is hauntingly beautiful and a song she said publicly, that she sings for her late father.

2018 is shaping up to be another hectic one for Bowtell. Starting the year off as always with both a big solo show and a packed house for the Bennett Bowtell and Urquhart at one of the biggest rooms in the country music capital.

The rest of the country will now get their chance to see this sensational live performer. Lyn has solo shows over the next few months and Bennett, Bowtell and Urquhart will come together for shows later in the year. All this while writing and recording the much anticipated second BBU album. 


Lyn Bowtell first came to prominence as songwriter and singer for multi-award winning Country Pop trio BELLA, since then she has released two critically acclaimed solo albums, ’SECRET SONGS’ (WJO) in 2012, and ‘HEART OF SORROW’ (Maven/Sony) in 2014.

The new EP ‘CALLING YOU’ was recorded on the Central Coast, NSW with producer Shane Nicholson at the helm, and once again Lyn and Shane have proven a formidable team.

Stand out tracks including the first single He Burns, All My Life, Calling You and Fields Of Gold highlight the powerful and sublime voice that turned heads and 4 red chairs on national television in Channel Nine’s The Voice Australia earlier this year.

Now the SIX TIME GOLDEN GUITAR WINNER is heading in a new direction, with a broader, wider audience ready to follow.

‘I’m no longer willing to be confined in a ‘genre box’ anymore. I want to show a bigger audience my full range as a singer and songwriter. I feel so connected to these 6 tracks, they are bright, bold and exciting. I can’t wait to share them, live and recorded’, said Bowtell.
