The EUROGLIDERS are originally from Perth and formed in 1981. Within a decade of forming, EUROGLIDERS had recorded four albums, enjoyed a multitude of chart topping singles and been awarded a swag of awards from around the globe, for both music and video. With Grace Knight, the ‘manic ballerina’, and Bernie Lynch on vocals and guitar, their performances were a rallying cry of anthems that audiences sung along with till their lungs were bursting. Life was a long dizzying ride to the top of the charts and ten Top Ten charting singles and albums were the result. The duo travelled the world, charting in countries like Japan and America. ‘Heaven’ was a top five hit on the Billboard USA charts and the band won numerous Countdown and MTV awards. A darling of MTV, EUROGLIDERS performed ‘live’ on MTV’s New Year’s Eve party in New York, broadcast to over 65 million people!
Grace Knight and Bernie Lynch have continued, in the years after the Eighties, to engage people in their lives………Grace Knight has forged an entirely new and separate career, acting in the award winning TV mini-series ‘Come in Spinner’ and recording many award winning jazz albums. Grace is considered to be one of the foremost singers in Australia. In addition to collecting an ARIA award in 1993 for the Platinum certified album, Come In Spinner, she’s one of only a handful of people to be nominated for ARIA awards in three separate decades. Bernie Lynch continued writing music for theatre and forged, with Collette Dinnigan, a fashion empire that continues to win innovative awards.
Today, some 25 years later, the relationship between that singer and that songwriter may have changed but the love of performing and their long enduring friendship continues every night on stage.
