Vinnie Barbaro


Bio

Vinnie Barbaro is a multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter from Adelaide, South Australia. Picking up the guitar at age 8, he learned to perform surrounded by fearless blues and jazz musicians. In his teens, he became absorbed by indie rock. Fuzz-soaked bands like The Strokes and Last Dinosaurs were a consuming influence. Forming and joining bands with his friends, he has played alongside acts including Lime Cordiale, Nick Murphy (FKA Chet Faker) and Simple Plan.

Eventually recording demos in his bedroom became more than a hobby. With the help of a few familiar faces on production and performance, Vinnie launched DIVEBAR YOUTH in 2019 as his own solo project. His first studio recorded single 'Obsess' secured airplay and a support slot for Fergus James. 2020 saw the release of 'Carbon Dioxide' with the song and music video receiving commendable reviews from media (Tone Deaf, It's All Indie) and generated interest in his next release, ‘Send.’
 
‘Send.’ is the product of a late 90’s baby, paying tribute to the early 00’s rock anthems that shaped his childhood. ‘Send.’ combines the bite of punk and the stumbling swagger of indie rock. It’s the first of a string of releases in 2020 that look to offer an insight into the diversity of this young artist’s song writing talent.

there's a heap of flavours going into this mix, with some early 2000's influences sticking out to me. it works all stirred up though that's for sure.

Vinnie with the 90s nostalgia on this! Taken the age old recipe for a great punk x pop x indie song and served it up.
