The reviews have started coming in for the Brian McKnight tour & this is written by Chris Singh from The [AU] Review.
This is my first review ever. I have to say, it’s a super strange feeling. Here’s an excerpt:
Top-24 finalist for Australian Idol, Barry Southgate, showed off some impressive vocal skill with acoustic covers of hits like Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” and Jessie J’s “Price Tag”.
Southgate also threw in some original music as he sang a song from his days with group Jireh, as well as “Don’t You Think,” the first single from his EP Epitome, which is a well-written, laid-back tune that places Southgate as Australia’s answer to Bruno Mars, and with songs like this, fans of the aforementioned should warm up to Southgate straight away. While it was a very short set, Barry Southgate proved that he’s one of the finest up and coming singers in Australia’s pop scene.
