Vinnie Barbaro


Bio

Adelaide-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Vinnie Barbaro began releasing music under the moniker Divebar Youth in 2019. Music was always a part of Vinnie’s life growing up. His childhood was filled with big bands, blues, and jazz, having picked up the guitar at the age of eight as his first instrument. Playing in acts over time has allowed him the opportunity to support artists like Chet Faker and Lime Cordiale.

What began with recording demos in his bedroom and hanging out in chaotic venues has evolved into a long-term ambition to share his ideas as Divebar Youth. The unique blend of sounds across his releases is Divebar Youth’s homage to influences ranging from 90’s hip-hop to dream-pop. ‘Baby Blue’ landed impressively with listeners, receiving airtime on Triple J, KCRW and MTV Australia. After supporting Fergus James and Hayley Mary, 2021 saw the artist sell out his first headline show in Adelaide and travel to Melbourne for his first interstate date. With much anticipation, his latest single ‘Never That Easy’ is out June 4th.
