FOUR LIONS MANAGEMENT, RECORD LABEL, GIG BOOKING & MUSICPUBLISHING ENQUIRIES
Lynette is a Melbourne-based print and digital journalist with 30 years' experience working on mastheads in Australia and Hong Kong, and a passion for music writing.
She pitched her services to her new favourite band Four Lions over a gin or three, after seeing them live for the first time. Much to her surprise, they took her up on it.
In her spare time, Lynette enjoys going to gigs, making themed Spotify playlists, and reassembling the running order of her favourite albums. She expects to have produced the definitive version of REM's Automatic For The People any day now.
