Artist Of The Month

January
Bounty Hunters


 
The chemistry between husband and wife team, David and Lyn Hinds is electrifying, both on stage and off, and their passion for music is inspiring.  It is this bond and dedication that has seen them have a successful career working the circuit as a duo and writing commercial advertising jingles. In 2005, the duo desired to perform more gutsy original blues inspired rock and roll, so they formed the Bounty Hunters band. 
In the same year the band produced a self titled 12 track album of original music under the Hinds' own label ‘Lighthouse Beach Records’, and it spans multiple genres, from old school rock to Latin and country infused songs.  The self titled album was a journey of discovery, providing them with the opportunity to test the water and work out where they best fit.
The album was recorded with musicians Chris Haigh on bass and Steve Sowerby on drums. The self titled album is distributed by MGM Distribution.
 
The band enjoyed continued success playing gigs mainly up and down the East Coast and adjusted to a few changes over the coming years, with Chris Adey taking over on drums and Rob Mestric joining as bass player.  The band continued with these members until mid 2013 when both withdrew due to their inability to commit to the band’s future direction. Rob Lyons then joined as the band’s drummer and the lovely Lyn Hinds stepped up to fill the role of bass player. 
The band delivers a high energy performance, with 'pocket rocket' Lyn belting out the vocals and rocking bass. David rips into his guitar with a fiery passion, and Rob and Lyn make up a tight, powerhouse rhythm section.
 
2014 saw Bounty Hunters writing and recording their new album, ‘Rise’. 11 original tracks were recorded at Michael Lynch’s Shoehorse Sound studio. Michael also co-produced, engineered, mixed and mastered the album. The album was launched at a CD release gig at Port City Bowling Club on Saturday, 12th April, where the band played to a packed house. Bounty Hunters played all 11 tracks from the new album live to an enthralled audience. The response was overwhelming!
 
2014 was a very busy year for the band with live gigs and writing for the next album, which will be recorded in early 2015.
With help from airplay and interviews with internet radio contacts such as Kenny Darkreine and Sam Jones from the UK’s Loop Radio, Georg Hegelmann from South Africa’s Fame Music Radio, Kai O’Callaghan from Blue Nose Baboon Productions in Portugal and Ralphy’s Music Of The World from Melbourne Australia, Bounty Hunters’ international fan base has grown exponentially. There has also been interest from the USA, Brazil and Japan.

Members' Histories
Lyn Hinds: Lyn's mother says that she was singing before she could talk, crawling around the house as a baby humming tunes….in tune! Hailing from Sydney's Northern Beaches area, Lyn was involved in musical activities at school, and upon entering university (she is a qualified schoolteacher) she played tuba in the uni band (earning her the nickname 'tuba lips'!) and singing in local rock bands. She was told by a music professor at uni that she had perfect pitch.
After graduating from uni she performed as 'Lady Lyn' at the Sydney theatre restaurant Bunratty Castle, and sang and played bass in the Irish/Celtic band Drops O' Brandy, who held down a residency at the prestigious Sydney Hilton Hotel.
Upon moving to Port Macquarie, she recorded some of her original songs at David's recording studio, and there began a professional and personal relationship which culminated with the pair marrying in 1996.
 
David Hinds: Born in Newcastle, NSW, David formed his first band, Hot Ice, at high school when he was 14. They even did some original songs! David played in local bands during his high school years, and by the time he finished school and went to work at Palings Music store, he was in the professional progressive rock band, The Marshall Brothers. At the age of 20 he entered Trafalgar Studios in Sydney to record the Marshall Bros' self titled debut album, which received rave reviews and went to No1 on the Radio 2NX album charts.
David went on to play in Highway with ex Blackfeather lead singer, Neale Johns. After Highway, he was recruited as lead guitarist in the high powered glam rock band, Rabbit, who had original AC/DC singer Dave Evans up front. Lots of touring with bands such as Ted Mulry Gang and Hush, and TV appearances on iconic shows like Countdown, Sounds and Flashez followed, and the Too Much Rock And Roll album was recorded in Alberts Studios in Sydney and released on CBS Records (now Sony) in Australia and internationally.
When Rabbit ran its course, David was offered the lead guitar spot in popular Sydney band Finch, which also included AC/DC bass player Mark Evans. Once again more touring ensued with bands like Dragon and Status Quo, and TV appearances included Countdown and Hey, Hey It's Saturday. Finch changed its name to Contraband in order to release product overseas, and the self titled Contraband album was recorded at EMI Studio 301 in Sydney, and released on Portrait Records, a boutique subsidiary of CBS Records.
When Contraband ran its course, David moved to Port Macquarie in 1979, where he got involved in the local music scene. He played solo gigs and was a member of The David Hinds Band, The Idols and The Dangerous Mongrels. He owned a music shop, Oasis Music, from 1982-85, and then a recording studio from 1986-99.
In 1995 David teamed up with Lyn in Balance Duo, The Flamin' Bullantz and ultimately, Bounty Hunters. 

Rob Lyons
Powerhouse drummer Rob Lyons hails from Sydney originally, where he played in several rock bands with his bass playing brother Alan. A move to the Macleay area several years ago led to him performing in local rock bands, the most recent being The Rotors, prior to him joining Bounty Hunters full time. Rob's powerful rock style anchors and drives the Bounty Hunters sound, and with 'pocket rocket' Lyn pumping out the solid bass grooves, they make a formidable rhythm section!
