Biography

The Eurogliders consisted of six members: Grace Knight (vocals), Crispin Akerman (guitars), Bernie Lynch (guitars), Amanda Vincent (keyboards), Geoff Rosenberg (bass), and John Bennetts (drums). As a teenager, Knight used to perform in folk clubs. Searching for a career boost, she traveled to Australia where she met Lynch, a friend of her sister's. As Knight developed her vocal style, Lynch began assembling the pieces for a band. In 1982, the Eurogliders released their first album, Pink Suit Blue Day, and had their first hit in 1982 with "Without You". Pink Suit, Blue Day was unusual in that the Eurogliders took the step of travelling to Manila, capital city of the Philippines, to record it. The album was produced by Englishman Len Lubin.

It wasn't until the release of the single "Heaven" from their second album This Island, which reached No.2 on the Australian singles charts in 1984, that the band received national and international attention.


That then started off a domino effect of hits, with "We Will Together" (No.7, 1985), "The City of Soul" (No.19, 1985), "Can’t Wait To See You" (No.8, 1985), "Absolutely" (No. 29, 1986) and "Groove" (No. 13, 1988).


The album Absolutely! spent 47 weeks in the Australian charts.


Grace Knight and Bernie Lynch were married briefly in 1985 and despite their marital separation stayed together in the band. In 1986 the Eurogliders signed a sponsorship deal with the Faberge Company. The single "Absolutely" was used in a television commercial for Faberge jeans, and the band also made an appearance in the commercial.

Leaving behind the new wave synthesizers and folksy harmonies of the Eurogliders, Knight switched to jazz and soul with Stormy Weather. A year later, Stormy Weather and the Come In Spinner soundtrack both landed in the Top Ten of Australia's jazz charts. In 1993, Knight released another album Gracious.
