Barry Ferrier met outstanding vocalist and musician Cammie Lindon in the ealy 70s at a concert at which they both appeared in concert held in Hyde Park Sydney. Cammie later supported Leo Kottke at Sydney Town Hall and performed some of Barry's songs in this show.
In the late 70s Barry and his late wife Cammie Lindon developed a successful music career together, first as a duo Lindon Ferrier and later performing around Sydney and Melbourne with their theatrical funk rock band Skeleton Crew with Peter Leighton on drums and Chris Doyle on bass who Barry met in Jeff St John and Sacha. This band featured in a revival season of Steve J. Spears' politically charged but highly melodic piece "Africa the Savage Musical" at the VCA Theatre in Melbourne.
Lindon Ferrier recorded singles at United Sound Studios with producer Spencer Lee and who secured a recording contract for the duo with international label RCA. They appeared on the ABC's legendary "Countdown", appeared live to air for a Triple JJJ performance and supported Ry Cooder at the Palais Theatre in Melbourne, going on to support Norman Gunston Christmas Show and make further regional telvision appearances together.
