One time Young Talent Time teen idol Debra Byrne has a new band she calls Cornerstone and the band already has a sell-out show at MEMO Music Hall.

“I am thrilled to have formed the band CORNERSTONE with Dion Hirini on guitar Chris Paraha on bass, Vashti Sevill on keyboard and Nick Karasavvidis on drums and me on lead vocals”, Debra Byrne said in a statement.

Cornerstone brings together some old friends. “The name CORNERSTONE epitomises what music has been and always will be for me. It’s the experience that brings me joy, friendship, love and emotional and mental stability. Music, and especially singing, is my yoga. Twenty years ago, Dion, Chris and I played together at the Zbar in Prahran on Sunday afternoons. Those sessions sparked the beginning of a freedom and camaraderie I had not felt before and I have longed to return to the musical genre where I feel most at home and most myself,” she said.

Cornerstone will perform songs of The Eagles, Bonnie Raitt, Steely Dan, Michael McDonald and James Taylor.

Cornerstone will perform at MEMO Music Hall on Thursday December 6. The show is a sell-out but head to the MEMO website to join the mailing list for future shows.
