“We have had the opportunity to support and play with some of Australia’s biggest icons, and Darryl Braithwaite is one of the greatest,” Darlinghurst vocalist, Pagan Newman says. “Not only was it an honour to support him at Taronga Zoo but was more than happy to have a jam with us before the show and has been nothing but an absolute legend.”

As the front man and vocalist for 1970’s band Sherbet, Braithwaite rode a wave of local and international success with songs such as Howzat and Summer Love, propelling the band the band to superstar status. He went on to embark on a highly successful solo career which included a #1 ARIA Album Chart for his album Edge (1988) featuring the hit singles As The Days Go By and One Summer.

Braithwaite’s 1990 follow up album Rise included the single The Horses, which reached #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart and to this day remains an anthem for generations of Australians.

Darlinghurst is Jason Resch, Newman, Cassie Leopold and Matt Darvidis. Since their debut single, Sorry We Won't Get Back To You, in 2019, the group have been blazing a path through Australian country music. 

They released their debut self-titled album in September 2021, which landed at #1 on the ARIA Country Album Chart and featured their seven previous singles – four of which reached #1 on the Countrytown Hot 50 Country Airplay Chart.

They scored a nomination for 'Best New Talent' at the 2021 Golden Guitar Awards. The following year, they were awarded 'New Talent Of The Year' for their track, Where Do We Go, and were nominated for "Contemporary Album Of The Year' and 'Group or Duo of the Year.' 

Last year, the Melbourne foursome opened for Irish family vocal group, The Corrs on their One Night Only concert in the Hunter Valley alongside Wet Wet Wet and Gaudion.
