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 play the blues before becoming absorbed with fuzz-soaked bands like The Strokes. In his teens, he formed and joined bands with his friends leading to support slots for acts including Lime Cordiale, Chet Faker and Simple Plan.

Vinnie began recording demos in his bedroom. With the help of a few familiar faces, he launched Divebar Youth in 2019 as his own solo project. His first studio recorded single 'Obsess' secured airplay on Triple J and a support slot for Fergus James.

His latest single, 'Baby Blue' concludes 2020. Incorporating double bass and 90's-style beats, 'Baby Blue' is a genre-bending, jazz-inflected performance that establishes Divebar Youth's unique and unconfined sound.

Sunny, easy vibes from Divebar Youth. The melody/beats are addictive.

V slick vibes from Divebar Youth with a stupid amount of steez - I'm kind of getting a Dominic Fike vibe too? Yeah, this is a really killer track.

a nice step up from divebar youth and it's a step into a vintage pastel coloured car that's cruising the streets with the top down as the sun sets.
