Loved for their catchy brand of pop, their shows are renowned for the band’s energetic stage presence, Grace Knight’s enigmatic performances, Bernie Lynch’s unparalleled musicality and their back-to-back repertoire of chart toppers. Never one to rest on their laurels, the band even headed into the studio a couple of years ago, returning with their first studio offering in decades, an album titled Don’t Eat The Daisies, featuring previously unreleased material and impressive reworkings of their biggest hits.

Formed by Bernie and Grace, Eurogliders not only toured to sell-out crowds in Australia, but also throughout NZ, Japan, the US and Canada. With Grace on vocals and Bernie on vocals and guitar, their live shows promised a powerhouse performance of anthems.  The band also won a swag of Countdown and MTV awards, and were asked to perform on the MTV New Year’s Eve show which saw them perform in-front of a televised audience of 65 million globally.
Iconic 80s band The EUROGLIDERS within a decade of forming, it recorded four albums, enjoyed chart topping singles and a swag of awards. The songs that Bernie wrote took on a life of their own in Grace’s hands - even capturing tragic American history in 'The City of Soul'. It was a dizzying ride to the top, with 10 Top Ten charting singles and albums. The EUROGLIDERS charted in countries like Japan and America, with 'Heaven' a top five hit on the Billboard USA charts and numerous Countdown and MTV awards. Since the 80's, Grace has forged an acting career and recorded award-winning jazz albums. Bernie continued writing music and forged a fashion empire with Collette Dinnigan. An album of new songs was released in 2006, a national tour performed and the magic was still there. In 2015, EUROGLIDERS released 'Don't Eat The Daisies', comprising new songs and re-workings of classic hits. 2016 saw the release of 'Fragile', Grace’s solo project of songs penned by Bernie. Fragile comprised blues, soul and folk tracks - and was welcomed with rave reviews....
