On December 31, Darke shared, “Although 2020 was an absolute SHITSHOW I wouldn’t change it for the world because it brought this handsome devil into my life... Happiest year yet!!!”
Darke began singing at ten years old and competing in local talent competitions when she was a child. She released her self-titled EP in 2009 and debut album, Dreams & Chances in 2011. It reached #5 on the Australian ARIA Country charts and #10 on the International ARIA charts, with all five singles from the album hitting the Top 10, with three charting at #1.
Her second album, Silver Lining launched to a sold-out audience in Sydney on its release, debuting at #1 on the Australian ARIA Charts, #3 on the Australian ARIA All Genres Chart, and #9 on the ARIA International Country Charts. The album led to her being a top five finalist in the ‘Female Artist of the Year’ category at the 2016 Golden Guitar Awards. She was also nominated for ‘Female Artist of the Year’ and ‘Oz Artist of the Year’ at the 2016 CMC Awards.
The 2009 Academy of Country Music graduate has performed at some of Australia’s most prestigious festivals including CMC Rocks The Hunter, Deni Ute Muster and the Gympie Music Muster, also travelling to Canada to perform at The Merrit Mountain Country Music Festival as one of the opening artists for Kenny Chesney.
Darke has shared the stage with both International and Australian artists including Doc Walker, JoDee Messina, Pam Tillis, Johnny Reid, Emerson Drive, The Steve Miller Band, Corb Lund, The McClymonts, Troy Cassar-Daly, McAlister Kemp, Beccy Cole, Adam Harvey, Amber Lawrence and Travis Collins.
Earlier this year, she released her first single in six years. Penned with Jason Duke and Johnny Simmen a few years back in Nashville, Sit In A Bar came from an idea of being in a bar and not getting drunk, not hooking up or anything else you could go to a bar for.
You may also recognise Darke from her performance with Keith Urban on Channel 7’s singing competition series, The Voice Australia last year. The spontaneous duet of Stupid Boy went viral and shot the song back onto the charts years after release.
