In this edition of ‘Get Your Shine On’ we are introducing you to a new Aussie singer/songwriter on the scene, who goes by the name of Barry Southgate. Southgate is a South African native, who moved with his family to New Zealand in his teen years before venturing on his own to Sydney, Australia. He became widely known as a finalist on the second season of Australian Idol. His dynamic voice and good looks (Southgate is of African, German, Indonesian and English decent, and has modeled extensively) made him a clear favorite among judges and fans, alike.
The singer, who traveled the country with R&B superstar, Brian McKnight,as the opening act for his Oz tour, recently released his first solo project, titled ‘Epitome’. The 5-track EP, infused with pop and soul music — is an eclectic representation of Southgate’s love of many genres, ranging from pop, rock and soul to gospel, country and classical.
