Where are they now... ? The New Seekers' Lyn Paul
by Neil Clark

Lyn Paul revealed what she'd been doing since leaving the New Seekers.

"I had a top 40 hit with It Oughta Sell A Million in 1975. But after I went solo I didn’t handle my career as well as I should have done. In the 80s and for most of 90s I kept trying to earn a living, playing in cabaret clubs.

Then in 1997 my life changed again..."

"Lyn has been playing this role on and off for about 20 years and how it showed; she was brilliant, totally believable and watchable. From the opening bars of Tell Me Itís Not True all the way to the tear-jerking climax, she lived every moment and shared the emotion with us."
