South African native Barry Southgate (now based in Australia) first came to public attention as a top 24 contestant on Australia Idol a few years back, and has since gone on to work with some of the country’s most popular talent, including Guy Sebastian and Delta Goodrem. He’s now focusing on his own career, recently self-releasing his first official single “Don’t You Think” and working on an EP for release in early 2011.
“Don’t You Think” has definite Bruno Mars vibes, but with a bit of a breezy island feel thrown in. It’s a solid little pop number for an unsigned artist, and a nice indication of things to come from his EP.
