Pop picking, as the saying goes, is a fast and furious business. Lyn Barnett’s career in New Zealand was brief but significant: in the early 1960s the Wellington teenager was one of the few female pop vocalists who recorded and had hits. She was a local star two years before Dinah Lee, but quickly disappeared from the New Zealand music scene.
Barnett’s discography is not lengthy: just five singles and an LP, all recorded in 1962 and 1963. By the time of her last single, she was just 17.
