Miss Funkyflyy's Lynden David Hall Interview (5166 bytes)

  Singer, songwriter, arranger, musician and producer Lynden David Hall rightfully won the 1998 MOBO (Music of Black Origin) "Best Newcomer" award. In 1999, he was the first U.K. artist ever voted "Best Male Artist" by the readers of Britain's Blues & Soul magazine. They've also made sure Lynden received the prestigious title "Best British Act" two years in a row and after his first appearance on the scene in late 1997, they voted him "Best Newcomer". Lynden's debut album, "Medicine For My Pain", and singles, "Do I Qualify" and "Sexy Cinderella", obviously had an instant appeal to soul fans in the U.K. -and elsewhere in the soul societies of Europe- but it wasn't until it got a remix treatment that this, then 23-year old, South Londoner got his major breakthrough. The success of "Sexy Cinderella", plus extensive touring around the U.K. and Europe, elevated Lynden to new heights and prompted a pan-European re-release of the brilliant "Medicine For My Pain" album in the late spring of 1999. I was fortunate to get the chance to interview the rather shy, but extremely friendly Lynden in 1998, just when his "Medicine For My Pain" album was about to be issued in Sweden.
