Chrissy Amphlett and Divinyls are perhaps the most prominent rock act to ever come out of Australia. This band has produced literally an endless amount of memorable songs, and Chrissy's compelling stage presence captivates all who have ever seen her live or in performance videos. The uncompromising no-holds-barred nature of Divinyls makes them a natural for IAC, rare talent - to watch, listen, and learn from. Their constant intensity level leaves no doubt that they left it all out there, every time they took the stage.
The roots of Divinyls began during a performance of a church choir when Amphlett's stool fell over and she became tangled up in the microphone cord. Her later longtime band mate Mark McEntee saw her continue to sing as she dragged the mic across the stage and decided he had to meet this singer.
Divinyls became a household word with the worldwide hit I Touch Myself but listening to their CDs, you begin to realize just how many exceptional songs they've recorded.
Chrissy has also recently received acclaim for her acting with a starring role in the Australian production of Blood Brothers and also played Judy Garland in the musical The Boy From Oz.
Now, she has a best selling book, called Pleasure and Pain which are the amazing memoirs of a rock-and-roll life, that you can purchase by clicking here
EMI has recently released Divinyls Greatest Hits which contains 20 superb tracks.
