"No Fortune Teller"

Lynda Manwaring's Debut Original Album

Lynda is pleased to announce the arrival of her first original album.

Recorded with the enthusiasm and like-minded approach of Patrick O'Donnell at Rolling Wheel Studios; its arrival took a little longer than anticipated, but from the start to completion; Lynda and Pat wanted to give this unique project all the 'air' it needed.

“Haunting  at times, acoustically and percussively rhythmic,  with rich and bluesy vocal tones, Lynda’s new music is imaginative and as earthy and inviting as a glowing winter fire"

"The Springbird"  

Lynda Manwaring's Debut Album (2015)

Let the 'Springbird' take you on a journey through a stunning compilation of songs interpreted by Lynda Manwaring.


Lynda describes the recording and release of this album as a cathartic experience for her, as she holds a personal connection with each song.


Visit Lyndas Blog for a beautiful acoustic album reflection.



There’s nothing rushed about “The Springbird” as Lynda Manwaring provides the voice of experience to songs you know and love such as  Nick Drake’s “Pink Moon, Suzanne Vega’s “Caramel”, Neil Finn’s “Message to My Girl “,“You’re Not The Girl You Think You Are” & Rickie Lee Jones “A lucky Guy “  . Manwaring doesn’t imitate she inhabits these songs and delivers them as her own with her sultry soulful vocals that provide the lyrics space to breath and make you want kick back and soak in the song. This is helped along by the rustic organic arrangements played by Kyle Manning and with Pat O’Donnell at the helm baking it all right here in Orange at Rolling Wheel Studios.


The whole album gives the listener the feeling that they’re sitting back on a couch as a bunch of friends gather in a lounge room after dinner with their instruments to play a bunch of their favourite tunes. The other highlight to the album is the title track and some musical excerpts that are original compositions by Lynda, which are a perfect fit with all the other songs on the album. These offerings are like a bud on a tree after winter which shows the promise of something that is about to blossom.  I look forward to hearing more from her own pen, until then I’m happy to have “The Springbird” making a nest on my Hi Fi.
